Bandit9 is a motorcycle design company based in Beijing, they design unique, custom built motorcycles. The latest stunner to roll out of their studio is a bike dubbed “Nero”. It is a revamp of a Custom Chang Jiang 750, and was designed by Daryl Villanueva. He was inspired by the Giger creature from the movie “Alien”. The bike is made mostly from custom Bandit9 parts, standout features have to be the unusual flat lines of the bike and the awesome matte black paint job.
