Rohini - made by Young Guns Speed Shop - is inspired by India's space programme and the Rohini satellites. The Swiss workshop has kept much of the original machine intact. The shape of the motorcycle has been accentuated with a slim, retro-inspired fairing and a single-piece seat and tail unit.

The build has a hidden surprise; in the dark, a layer of reflective paint transforms the classic lines into a riot of Razzle Dazzle light, which the company claims blurs the lines between being beautifully retro and wildly modern.

In order to provide a clean look, the bike’s rider controls are concealed and cables and wires are all hidden. The ignition is keyless and activated by matched gloves worn by the rider.
