‘The Japanese take on a 650cc parallel twin provides the perfect basis upon which this gentlemen’s ‘cafebrat’ is built around. The Merlin sits on plenty of Coker rubber in a stance that has been manipulated to get a suitably aggressive angle of attack although its colour scheme using deep dark greens and golds gives the overall build a refined and subtle look and feel.’

‘this bike looks like no other, yet it’s also timeless and seems somehow familiar.’


‘…magnificent creation…’
