The futuristic Bandit9 Supermarine isn’t just a concept, but rather a real motorcycle that consists of over 400 components made using 3D drafting software. Featuring a lightweight frame handcrafted from 7075 aluminum alloy and either 900cc or 1200cc Triumph Twin engines making 74hp to 102hp respectively.
Customers can also opt for electronic fuel injection, a stainless / titanium steel exhaust system, Nitron / Ohlins suspension, Brembo / Beringer Aerotec brakes, and a custom LED display. All of this comes in a 419-pound package in base model form or up to 476-pound if fully optioned out. There’s no word yet on pricing because each Supermarine is built to order so the price tag could vary greatly. However, deliveries are expected to begin in December, 2021.
- The model includes a 2-speed gearbox, a first for LEGO Technic motorcycle models, and front and rear suspension for realistic movement

The materials of the Supermarine is made for the stars. The design, however, was inspired by the sea. The body borrows its curves from leaping Mobula Rays, while the frame is inspired by coral reefs,” said the company.
