Mash Recreates WWII Era Military Motos With The Old-School LE Desert Force 400

Mash Motors is a small moto marque that offers a wide range of custom-inspired, small-to-medium displacement models, the majority of which possess a decidedly vintage aesthetic. And the French moto manufacturer is now doubling down on its yesteryear influence with the unveiling of a new limited-edition model based on WW2-era military motorcycles.

The Desert Force 400 is a standard bike, kicked along by a blacked-out, 27hp, air-cooled, 397cc single that exhales through a black, antique-looking pea-shooter exhaust. Details unique to the model include an antique-style fender-mounted number plate, a headlight grille, old-school horn, leather knee pads, 1950’s taillight and fenders, a 10-liter jerry can and rack, multiple custom Mash-brand leather pieces of luggage, a bespoke textile pannier, and a WW2-era sprung tractor-style pillion and grab-loop, all done up in a military-inspired desert livery with militaryesque logos adorning the tank and air-filter cover. Weighing in at 332lbs (dry), the Desert Force 400 also gets switchable ABS and a two-year unlimited mile warranty. Aside from a digital speedo and tach combo — that looks admittedly out of place — Mash has done a stellar job of recreating a midcentury military moto. Limited to only 103 examples, pricing for the Mash Motors 2020 Desert Force 400 has been set at $5,480.
