If there was ever a motorcycle that looked like a piece of art, it would be the Bandit9 EVE Odyssey.
Just look at its beautifully simplistic yet sophisticated unibody design.
It’s quite possibly the finest two-wheel creation to come out of the Vietnamese custom shop yet.

We’ve seen some stunning bikes from renowned bike builder Daryl Villaneuva and his team, but the science fiction-inspired Bandit9 EVE Odyssey takes it to a whole new level.
And, unlike some of his past two-wheelers, you’ll actually be able to buy this model.
The new EVE Odyssey boasts the designer’s signature retro-futuristic aesthetic.
Its minimalist monocoque structure houses the bike’s headlamp, steering controls, gas tank, and seat.
Each of the major elements has been made from space-grade aluminum used by NASA spacecraft, too.
Its smaller parts – such as the handlebars, lever and lights – have all been custom-made to better match the bike’s singular design.
To achieve its ultra-sleek appearance, the engine, single-sided swingarm, and monoshock rear suspension have all been integrated into the L-shaped subframe.
All in all, you’ve got a bonkers motorcycle that looks like a silver bullet.
At the heart of the Bandit9 EVE Odyssey is an air-cooled 125cc Honda engine that can reach freeway speeds of 65mph (100 km/h).
What’s really impressive, though, is the bike’s range of 156 miles (250 km) per gallon.
We’ve not been told how big the tank is, but we expect you’d to be able to cover plenty of ground between fill-ups.
There’s an electric version of the bike in the works, too, although it’s not clear when that will go into production.
Bandit9 EVE Odyssey price
The Bandit9 EVE Odyssey is priced at $19,500 plus shipping, though anyone who preorders before March 14 will get a $4,000 discount.
The company hasn’t revealed how many units will be built, but said that quantities will be limited.
