"The Sachs Roadster was a big capacity design risk taken by Sachs in the early 2000s... to build a stand-alone classic street bike.
Design before it's time, pulled in lots of style cues from a more vintage era. Shortly after this attempt by Sachs, the modern retro bike culture took hold and brands such as Triumph, Ducati, Royal Enfield and BMW began to create similar, everyday road bikes for the emerging heritage market."
