Not another boxer.

Hide Motorcycle shapes the R nineT into sporting equipment.

The fact that Hideya Togashi calls his R nineT a plain and simple Boxer is an excessive understatement. Because the custom bike in the seventies racing look is neither plain nor simple. An inventory.

Racing retrospective

If Japanese customizers want to put a Naked Bike into a spectacular cover, they usually don't buy any parts. They build the trim panel themselves. It's the attention to detail, especially to the craftsmanship, that has made Hideya Togashi build the entire trim panel of the R nineT himself; transforming the roadster into a unique athlete that appears to have come straight out of the racing scene of the seventies. "The trim panel brings you back to the past. But the main feature is the slim aluminium tank: it nestles up to the rider to a certain extent", Hide says. He found the perfect line of the boxer through trial and error. He honed and refined the shape again and again until he found it to be perfect.

Hideya Togashi

Hide Motorcycle

The passion for classic sporting design shaped Hideya Togashi's style right from the outset. He was amazed at the American vintage racers from old magazines and photo albums and would convert original machines himself soon. In 2001, he founded Hide Motorcycle aka Hidemo in Yokohama. Two years later, he moved to Kawasaki and won numerous custom bike awards in the years that followed, including the "Best Of Show Motorcycle" award at the Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show 2006 and 2007. The careful way in which Hide builds the motorcycles is captivating. Reduced and yet exquisite. This is the signature of Hide Motorcycle.
