The Destino Samurai is a sublime example of zen styling, form & function. Likened to the balance & harmony that comes from a painstakingly raked Japanese stone garden, this 9 month fanatical obsession that Destino undertook to create the perfect motorcycle sees the original Japanese metric cruiser as the donor bike rising from the ashes in all its glory.
Breathtakingly simple, each bespoke piece was designed to calm the senses and engage the warrior spirit, making this bike a truly unique piece.
Destino is considered to be the first designers in Australia to unveil a “True Samurai” . An all Japanese powerplant engine is at the heart of its makeup & swathed in true warrior stance & styling.
Unlike other custom motorcycles, this bike is designed to be experienced... ridden, appreciated and enjoyed... every day.
Internal monoshock suspension, with hardtail looks...
Twin front discs for the ultimate in stopping power &
An 1100cc v-twin engine mean that the "Destino Samurai" is all about the ride.
Subtle performance upgrades have taken an already strong solid base & elivated it to a whole new level.
Capturing the warrior in the bike was easy says JimmyB & Nik , the couple behind the Destino Custom Garage brand. A true Japanese warrior has a strong & powerful centre of balance. Slung low & mean... ready to pounce. We wanted to capture that in the bikes stance. The front forks have been raked to engage that look & you'll see the riding position is strong yet sleek... hands below the line of the triple tree... head down, eyes alert.
Enblazened with a genuine antiqued brass Tsuba (samurai sword hilt) on the side of the fuel tank and its custom made pipes send off a warning to all who should step a little to close.
Destino only make 4 bikes of the Samurai ilk each year and sell them to clients on an invite only basis. Each motorcycle is custom built to suit its owner. Succinct adjustments & personal preferences ensure each Samurai is a one off unique piece as it rolls out the garage door.
