If it’s motorbikes that dare to be different from an aesthetic point of view that you’re after then Death Machines of London are definitely the workshop for you and they’ve proven this point once again with their latest release – the gloriously stylish and contemporary looking Kenzo Motorcycle which will unquestionably turn heads everywhere you go if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on one.
The Death Machines of London Kenzo Motorcycle takes its design inspiration from a samurai general’s armour and is named after an iconic Isle of Man TT Racer from Japan by the name of Kenzo. This spectacular reimagining of a 1977 Honda Gold Wing Bike is a fantastic showcasing of traditional craft in combination with top of the range manufacturing practices and, as you might expect, this caused the workshop many problems along the way but, as you can see, it was definitely worth the blood, sweat and tears. Ride or Die
Death Machines of London are aptly named as they are certainly not adverse to pushing the boundaries of what is possible with motorbikes and the Kenzo is an excellent example of exactly that. This superb looking steed is, without doubt, one of the most visually arresting that you’re ever likely to see and it is in good company with the other mesmerising rides from the Death Machines of London stable.
One of the stand out features of the Kenzo Motorcycle from Death Machines of London is the mirror-polished black ‘blade’ which envelopes the front light cluster and drops down to the base of each fork is a reference to a Katana sword. The body work was then finished off in their own custom Titanium Samurai paintwork, with matte black detailing that adds a stealthy touch to proceedings. Additional features include detailed ‘Kenzo’ grill work, an in-house petrol cap, precision-machined aluminium badges and handle bars wrapped in the traditional Tsukamaki sword wrapping technique.
