The summer vibe has reached the workshops of Deus Ex Machina in Italy and influenced the latest Yard Built creation of the Milan design emporium. The Deus Yard Built XV950 ‘D-Side’ is stunning and stands alone as the only Yard Built custom bike and sidecar combination so far. Inspiration from vintage boats helped in the design of the sidecar unit which is clear to see with a classic boat shape and a beautiful wooden deck at the rear for extra luggage. For the XV950 itself, inspiration came from an early Deus build, the Brat Style of the Deus SR500 ‘Drover’s Dog’. The design influence carries over to the XV, seeing a surf rack fixed between the sidecar and bike, and a stripped back simplified style that shows off the XV’s torque V-twin motor.
