The Bandit9 Bishop Motorcycle

Near enough swerving off the pages of a Manga comic, to call Beijing-based outfit Bandit9’s motorcycles futuristic would be a bit like saying Rambo is handy with guns.

However, for the latest machine fashioned by the company, its makers have put a much more vintage spin on the roadster, mixing ultramodern bodywork with some classic detailing for a quite spectacular final product.

Fashioned from full custom aluminium and based on the frame of a Honda Supersport, the Bandit9 Bishop comes with optional body panelling of walnut, oak, or teak burl, with quartz-encased LED brake lights and a slim charcoal grey suede seat only adding to its lustrous appeal.

Not that we’re totally shallow. There’s a whole lot of oomph going on with the Bishop, its speediness powered by the exposed 90cc-125cc engine you can see on the side of the bike which will be limited to just nine models when it’s released later in the year.

If you happen to want to place an order, head over to the website, place an order and expect to part with a hefty sum.
