prestigious motorcycle company bandit9 has released its most luxurious bespoke bike yet, ‘project odyssey’. influenced by the powerful might of a bison, the odyssey exudes dominance and untamed power boasting up to 72 horsepower. the sophisticated chassis is made from 904L steel, the seat with memory foam covered in italian leather, and performance components from aeronautic materials designed for competition — all machined with precision down to nanometers.

the unparalleled craftsmanship that bandit9 exhibits in its odyssey design shows in its attention to details. implemented with discreet technology and adorned in luxury components, the odyssey permits no compromise in design, function and materials. inspired by aircraft, the motorcycle uses avionics to guide and manage one’s ride. the see-through LED display is projected from below the tank and vanishes when off. the saddle’s high density foam moulds to the rider’s body distributing weight evenly. hop off and the seat recovers its original shape to line up perfectly with the odyssey’s seemingly sci-fi silhouette.

aditionally, the odyssey employs 50mm marzocchi forks to smoothen out the ride. forged in lightweight anodized aluminum, the marzocchi is designed for competition and is a common choice for high-end vehicles including ducati, mondial and maserati. cast in aeronautic aluminium, the beringer master cylinders have been developed with the advantage of responding quickly and thus provide outstanding braking feeling.

  • That looks awesome and futuristic.

  • Clearly interesting, but when I see ‘unparalleled craftsmanship’ .. ‘adorned in luxury’ .. ‘precision down to nanometers’, I look around to see if there’s someone blowing smoke near my backside.

    And, as interesting as this is, I would still prefer to see more mechanicals.

  • Someone that understands motorcycles and technology needs to review this copy; “boasting speed up to 72 horsepower” should have been caught by somebody, certainly not repeated in the lead off caption. Lots of other goofy stuff in there as well. Too bad, the bike is interesting and I would have liked to know more real facts about it and its “aeronautic materials”!
