Vagabund V13: The Honda NX 650 meets 3D printing

There are some builders who have a very ‘freestyle’ approach, grinding and hammering away at metal until things look right. And then there are the builders who plan everything meticulously beforehand, getting the look and the fit millimeter-perfect—and using technology to the max. Paul Brauchart and Philipp Rabl of Austria’s Vagabund Moto fall into the modernist camp. Their output is precise rather than prodigious, and they’ve just finished the sleekest Honda NX650 Dominator we’ve ever seen. ...

Kawasaki and Bimota Team-Up Could Create the KB4 Retro Sportbike

Retro Style, Modern Japanese Engineering Bimota and Kawasaki are working together.
