I first came across Bandit9 a few years ago when they released the EVE motorcycle, It was radically different from anything I had seen before so naturally I had to know more. I did a little digging and managed to get in touch with Daryl Villanueva, the head of Bandit9 and the designer of these beautiful machines.
Daryl was in advertising before breaking away to pursue his art and I am sure glad he did, just look at these bikes! He started Bandit9 in Beijing before moving the company to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in 2014.
Since first connecting with Daryl he has released a number of new bikes and designs that continue to impress. Each build is limited to 9 bikes.
Some examples of his work:
The Dark Side
What do you guys think of these builds? Bandit9 is continually coming out with new and exciting bikes so we will try and keep everyone updated. I am happy to provide more info on any of them, and if there is enough interest we could even list some of his existing bikes for sale on Massdrop.
