Matteucci Delivers A Sahara-Inspired Angular Dual Sport Custom Motorcycle

With more than 30 completed builds to its name, Italy’s Matteucci Garage has built just about every genre of custom bike under the sun. So, for its latest project, founder and head honcho Marco Matteucci opted to do something a little different. What started as rough guidelines for the bodywork on his Honda NX650 build eventually became the final design itself, resulting in the bespoke boxy-bodied enduro build.

Named “Dakhla,” — after a city in the Western Sahara — the dual-sport features a full set of angular bodywork including a headlight shroud, a geometric take on an MX fender, a flat tank with wide 90-degree shoulders and custom shop badges, a matching tail section housing a bespoke finned acrylic taillight, and an equally-boxy set of hard cases — all of which are made for hand-welded 3mm aluminum sheeting and adorned in a matte sand paint. The dual exhaust-port thumper was also gifted a high-compression Wiseco piston and a bespoke exhaust ending in a high-mounted can. Other additions include Koso instrumentation, ASV levers, a polished chrome filler cap, an inverted Marzocchi front-end, a Beringer brake setup with steel-braided lines and custom laser-cut rotors now sporting the shop’s “M” logos, and a custom leather saddle.
