as a pitch-black blend of pure capability and elegance, the bandit9 ‘dark side’ motorcycle composes a harmony of the dark, dramatic and beautiful. limited to just nine editions, it is handcrafted to perfection with an understated yet intimidating aesthetic. the bike’s profile is an exaggeration of an airplane’s aerodynamics – a typical source of influence for the craft shop – where the smooth unibody fuses together the cowl, fuel tank, seat and brake light. this one continuous and curved piece subtly catches different lights, which dramatically creates an elongated, dynamic and mysterious appeal.

the air-slick bandit9 ‘dark side’ motorcycle is said to be the brand’s moonshot – a result of choosing the difficult path and overcoming it. if its sleek, minimal design wasn’t enough to prove this, then its classy and operatic performance will. at its heart it features a 750cc liquid-cooled engine with a 60º v-twin, which produces 7955 rpm and 43 lb-ft of torque. coined as the ‘revX’ engine, it is positioned closer to the ground than traditionally in order to lower the center of gravity and offer improved handling at low speeds. additionally, and matching the two-wheeler’s minimalist and raw attitude, it is complete with a vance & hines competition exhaust which is formed from lightweight steel and coated in high temperature ceramic finish.
