I wonder if Bandit9's Dark Side has cookies. Only 9 people on earth will truly find out, as that's the number of bikes the Saigon-based custom motorcycle shop will build as part of this very limited edition.
This Dark Side's mobile life support system - rarely spoken of, not even in The Book of Sith - stems from the Harley-Davidson V-Rod Street HD V-Twin, with additional inspiration from Porsche. The engine is a 750cc liquid-cooled build with a 60-degree V-twin. Bandit9 calls the pitch-black, unibody armor encasing the bike "a road opera - a harmony of the dark, dramatic and beautiful." Its fuel tank, cowl, seat, and brake light are all fused into a single, smooth piece.
Some more of Bandit 9's Dark Side braggin' points include:
