Bandit 9 announce the L-Concept based on a Honda Supersports 125

The bike is a completely revamped version of the Honda Supersports 125 and features retro-inspired jet engine details

BANDIT 9 announce limited run of the Honda Supersports 125 based L-Concept. The bike is going to be on sale for $11,950 and is the brainchild of Daryl Villanueva, Founder and Chief of Design at Bandit 9 Motors.

The limited run of nine bikes all feature a hand-built stainless-steel cowling around the engine, something Villanueva was inspired to design by the USS Enterprise. The engine is mounted in a stainless steel unibody frame, with custom made aluminium levers and stainless-steel handlebars.

Speaking to Ultimate Motorcycle, Villanueva explained how his passion for custom motorcycles began:

“Ever since I was a kid, I always loved the look of motorcycles and the way they just zip between cars. There was just something pure about them. But I’m a late bloomer; I started riding when I was 25. I had been bouncing around the world, and Saigon was the kind of place where the motorcycle was a way of life. It’s part of the culture and what energizes the city. If you get a chance to come here, go on top of a high rise and you’ll see how motorcycles flow through the streets like cells in veins.

“I can talk about this for hours, but I’ll keep this as short as possible. For some reason, today, we tend to ask “Why?” a lot. In the Jet Age, we choose the moon, put jet engines in cars, and invented supersonic travel. We didn’t ask why. We did it because we wanted to push mankind to its limits. We did it because we can. And I love that. There’s no reason, except to be better.”
