“We wanted to give like-minded people courage to create what may be deemed as absurd. Because they’re the ones who will change the course of humanity for the better. They’ll call us crazy today. Tomorrow – pioneer” – Bandit9 Motors.
Since 2011, Bandit9 has been dedicated to bring about a 2nd Jet Age through these highly stylized, radically designed motorcycles coveted by collectors and museums alike.
Arthur by Bandit9 Motors x Royal Enfield, the Indian motorcycle manufacturing brand with the tag of “the oldest global motorcycle brand in continuous production”, is a bespoke motorcycle fitted with quality steel parts made entirely by hand, bearing a 535cc engine made by Royal Enfield, and is nothing less than a work of mechanical art. Arthur is made-to-order and only 9 pieces will ever be produced USD 19,800 including door-to-door shipping. The 192kg Arthur has a fuel capacity of 13.5 litres and a top speed of 150 kmh.
With roots in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, creating a motorcycle worthy of its lineage was daunting. “Our mission to elevate the cafe racer to regality took an entire year to complete as we forged iron and steel into swooping arches and serpentine curves. Each detail flowing to the next. With no beginning and no end,” said Bandit9 Motors.
The motorcycles features custom parametric frame, custom steel tank, custom rear cowl, headlight-white light, inverted front forks with external suspension, custom steel triple clamp. The crossbow handlebar, the exhaust, air filter, speedometer, drum brake, and the swingarm are also cutom-made.
