Lord of the Bikes: Vertigo

A Manga inspired Moto Guzzi Audace from Vibrazioni Art Design

Maybe it's this contest. Maybe it's the bikes that they are starting out with. Maybe it's just the nature of Moto Guzzi dealers and builders… but the bikes coming from Moto Guzzi's dealership custom contest are more far-out than any contest we've seen yet. Not just in terms of thinking outside the box, but drawing from really interesting inspiration and coming up with truly different styles of builds. Last week we featured the first in the lineup: Bogu, and this week we feature another Japanese inspired Guzzi: Vertigo from Vibrazioni Art Design.

The bike almost looks cartoon, and that’s very intentional. Inspired by classic Manga works like Akira, the far-out design pulls from the designs of some of Japans most prolific comic book artists. Heavily utilizing new school techniques like 3d printing, the bike is nearly as futuristic as the ones that inspired it.

Molded carbon fiber panels form the body work for Vertigo. Aerodynamic carbon wings on the front fairing, wheel covers and full side covers are all made out of carbon fiber.

The paint works give off a certain post-apocalyptic feel that pairs well with the dystopian futuristic look of the built. It’s rough but refined. Brutally functional. It just looks built for another time.

This is just one of many bikes to be featured here for Moto Guzzi's Lord of the Bikes, stay tuned for more and be sure to head over to GarageMotoGuzzi.com for more information on the other bikes to come!
