based on a honda supersport, the limited edition, custom-made bandit9 ‘bishop’ motorcycle will only have nine units produced. similar to the saigon-situated company’s ‘EVE‘ model, it has a stripped back, open-air design that showcases the powerful 90cc or 125cc engine, continuing through to the specially-fitted muffler. above this, the bike features a high-grade steel unibody that enjoys contrasting wood burl side panels and a bold gas cap on its top. combing this with the sand-casted swingarm, aluminum indicators and custom brakelight, their philosophy for creating motorbikes that are out of place and time, is met. the bespoke ‘bishop’ succeeds in pushing the boundaries and capabilities of a two-wheeler and, like the brand’s other models, disregards convention and traditional categorization.
