Not quite the swank, gadget-filled fictitious motorcycle that action hero Batman rides, Nero still boasts a design that intimidates, intrigues, and impresses. Built by Beijing-based Bandit9, the motorcycle is a custom bike reincarnated from the Chang Jiang 750 and given a look of stealth through its matte paint job. The 19-inch wheels on the bike support a new engine and transmission, as well as custom accoutrements, including the handlebars, seat, and rear fender. The gas tank has also undergone a transformation, now featuring a more masculine, boxy design to match the bike’s new persona. The seat is high up on the motorcycle – not one of those sit-and-lounge designs – and creates a feeling of dominance, prowess, and presence for its rider. When compared to other modern, commercial bikes, Nero stands out among the rest because of its serious, bare-bones look, a result of the exposed pipe work at the heart of the vehicle. And of course, it comes in black.
