Vagabund 3D-Prints A Modern One-Off Honda Dominator Dual-Sport Moto

Based in Austria, Vagabund Moto is one of the world’s most eminent custom motorcycle builders, with a deep catalog of highly-celebrated and publicized projects. And while the Graz outfit’s latest work is just as, if not even more impressive than its previous builds, it takes a marked change in direction and design language, departing from the shop’s signature take on BMW’s airhead platform to deliver a modern interpretation of Honda’s Dominator called the “V13.”

Starting with a 1991 NX650, the two-man operation lopped off the donor’s subframe, replacing it with a new section that now supports an Alcantara saddle. For the Honda’s tank, tail section, and air filter covers, Vagabund turned to additive manufacturing, 3D-printing the trio of parts from Polyamide 12. The same method was also used to create the build’s switchgear housing and indicator brackets. Other upgrades and details include a Motogadget Motoscope mini sunken into the tank, a bespoke stainless steel exhaust culminating in an Akrapovic can, Wilbers mono-shock, an Off The Road oil cooler, custom triples and bars, custom jerry can holders, a Husqvarna TC85 fender, and a bespoke front luggage rack that now accommodates a set of Kellerman micro-LED indicators and Highsider auxiliary LEDs fulfilling headlight duties.
