The Magpul Ronin 1125R is possibly the most original motorbike design we have seen in a long time. Of course, original does not always mean good looking, but we think the Ronin will certainly appeal with its futuristic lines and endless custom options.
Created by Magpul, the Ronin 1125R ($38,000+) is a departure for a company that typically makes firearms, but the attention to detail and quality of build are transferred well to the road. First created as a concept, the Ronin 1125R was met with enthusiasm from bike fans, who wanted to see the ride go into production. Magpul complied and started a new bike company named Ronin Motorworks, of which the 1125R is the first product.
Named after the famous 47 samurai warriors in Japan’s fugal history, the Ronin 1125R is available with a black and silver paint job and will be available in 2013. However, be quick because only 47 examples will be made.
It took LaRossa nearly a decade to finish this custom Ducati 900SS. To be fair, he not only tried to settle the upgrades, he also battled cancer twice, and hit development roadblocks. He almost gave up on it, too. Yet, here we are.
