Introducing our latest favourite: the custom-made Bandit9 Bishop, limited to nine models only – based on a Honda Supersport.
And, yes, the limited edition, custom-made bandit9 “Bishop” motorcycle will only have nine units produced.
Very similar to the Saigon-situated company’s “EVE” model, it also has a stripped back, open-air design that showcases the powerful 90cc or 125cc engine. Above this, the motorbike features a high-grade steel unibody with wood burl side panels and a bold gas cap on its top. In a fantastic combo with the sand-casted swingarm, aluminum indicators and custom brakelight, this motorcycle seems to be out of place and time. Perfectly timeless even.
The bespoke “Bishop” succeeds in pushing the boundaries and capabilities of a two-wheeler and, just like the other models of the same brand, it seems to hate convention or even traditional categorisation. To our pleasure, naturally.
Bandit9 is a Saigon-based motorcycle company founded by ex-advertising creative director and art director Daryl Villanueva. The philosophy behind the motorcycle startup is to push what a motorcycle can be by disregarding convention and traditional motorcycle categories. Bandit9’s goal is to leapfrog the current, and instead, create fanatically crafted bikes that are out of place and out of time.
