Based on the Yamaha SR, Deus presents their latest custom build, the Lightning 400. Designed for on and off-road hijinks, the bike was designed for versatility no matter where you take it.

Deus looked to the past for inspiration and built the bike by hand using aluminum, steel, fiberglass, and rubber. Specifically the bike features an aluminum tank with "Monza" cap, 46mm front suspension, FOX rear shocks, CNC formed triple clamps, Discacciati front brakes, Sc-Project full Exhaust, and OEM Yamaha alloy wheels in the front and back. Custom orders are available from Deus's shops in Milan, Italy and Sydney, Australia.

Federal Moto "The Ace"

How does one make the motorcycle equivalent of a unicorn into something even more special? Hand it over to bikebuilding upstart Federal Moto and you'll see what we're talking about.

The shop discovered a 1974 Norton Commando 850 that was in desperate need of some tlc and as you can see this is one bike that's gotten a whole lot of love. The directive of the project was to keep the charm of the Nortons from the 70s while modifying the design into something any Norton aficionado can appreciate. A few core elements from the the comprehensive re-build includes a cleaner, stronger, and restyled frame, burly Coker Diamond Tread tires, a classic '71 Norton oil tank, original engine, repurposed and redesigned fenders sourced from a '50s Triumph, and a modified set of '71 Norton Command SS pipes with Reverse Megaphone cone exhausts.

From the lunatics that brought you the asphalt-hungry Ariel Atom brings you another piece of machinery that is bound to melt your face off just the same, the Ariel Ace. The Ace is the company's first motorcycle and will have a large focus on personalization.

Leveraging their existing relationship with Honda and the Atom roadster, the bike will be powered by a 1237cc V4 Honda motor that will produce 173 hp and is claimed to have a 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 165 mph. When it comes to personalization, riders will be able to choose everything from their front and rear suspensions, bodywork, handlebars, tank sizes, exhausts, finish, colors, and more. Ariel hopes to launch the Ace early next year.

2015 EBR 1190SX

ebr.jpg

Look out Ducati, Erik Buell Racing has just unveiled its own streetfighter-style bike and as you would expect it is looking like quite the beast. There aren't any details as of yet about the SX's specs other than it's based on its bigger brother, the impressive 1190RX superbike.

Taking that into consideration, the bike does look every bit as good as anything else in the segment and if the performance of the 1190RX is any indicator of how the SX will be, expect it to keep up with some of the best "naked" options out there. Keep an eye on this post as we'll update it once we hear more from EBR when they reveal official specs in the coming months.

Deus x Dainese Riding Jacket

For their new motorcycle jacket, Deus has teamed up with a company who knows a thing or two about building a motorcycle jacket, Dainese. The Riding Jacket ditches the high-performance MotoGP-style branding for a vintage, no-nonsense look in a timeless leather silhouette.

The jackets come in your choice of black or brown and are made with 100% cowhide leather construction and cotton quilted lining. As we mentioned before, the jacket forgoes the "look at me" styling of today's motorcycle jackets with subtle Deus branding on the chest and arms and also comes with two extra leather patches featuring original Deus artwork.

$600, Deus
