The Matchless Model X was a motorcycle manufactured between 1929 and 1940.
Developed for V-twin enthusiasts with a specially reinforced rear frame for heavy-duty sidecar work. There were yearly modifications and in 1937 the Model X was completely redesigned as a fast touring motorcycle, having been upgraded and rebranded as the ‘Sports Tourist’, with a shorter wheelbase frame which improved road holding and steering.

At the much anticipated 100th annual 2014 EICMA Cycle and Motorcycle exhibition in Milan, Matchless will simultaneously celebrate its 115th anniversary by presenting the “Model X Reloaded,” a design inspired by the legendary “Model X”.
The bike was designed by Franco Malenotti in conjunction with the Matchless design team, a process closely overlooked by the Collier family to maintain and respect the spirit and tradition of Matchless.
