2018 "L-Concept" 1967 Honda Super Sport 125

Second Floor - Industry

While the motorcycle industry in the West has grappled with attracting non-riders onto two wheels, Vietnam’s Bandit9 has had much more success. Bandit9 takes totally utilitarian bikes built in the millions around the world and transforms them into striking and thoughtfully designed motorcycles. Resembling a jet or pistol in profile, the ultralight, 297-pound “L-Concept” has a top speed of 68 miles per hour and is powered by a 125cc, four-speed, air-cooled, four-stroke engine.
