Custom motorcycles can look good – even if they don’t look good. For example, take a look at ICON’s Magnificent Bastard (they couldn’t come up with a better name) – 1986 Honda VF1000R, big, heavy dinosaur, featuring steel perimeter, huge engine and modular wheels. Too heavy for track – to slick for adventure riding.That’s where the ICON geniosity kicked in.
Icon Motorsports have a refreshingly unique approach to both motorcycles and motorcycle gear, their current product range has the singular distinction of being popular with both the ultra-modern/super-bike crowd as well as the hand-built/retro/air-cooled community.
Icon 1000 is a new parallel brand from Icon specializing in premium motorcycle gear and clothing with emphasis on retro styling and state-of-the-art technology. A space that’s been woefully absent up until now.
The Icon 1000 series is accompanied by a series of motorcycles, one of which you see pictured above and below. Clearly the design team at Icon decided to not break the mould , but to fire the mould out of a cannon into a brick wall. Then jump up and down on the remaining pieces.
