Motoism GL500-JPN


„Ride it like you stole it.“

We like motorcyles bad guy style. If you do so, you either steal one of our bikes, or you get your hands on your very own. Certainly, we prefer the latter.


With this slogan, Motoism present this motorcycle.


Building the Honda GL500-JPN we managed to preserve the style of the 80s, whilst using high-tech components and modern production methods. The contrast brings the thrill.
