If you need to take a friend with you on your next bike trip, there's no better way to go than with a sidecar. Credited to Mr. M. Bertoux, a French army officer, in 1893, the hack has become an iconic part motorcycling, from WWII to the present day. Deux ex Machina couldn't resist the urge to partner with Yamaha and turn this XV960 into the ultimate beach machine, with a ground-up custom sidecar and surfboard rack. The torquey v-twin Yamaha packs plenty of low-end to carry the added weight of a board and passenger, and the modern styling with retro touches are perfect for a European coastal retreat. Deus ex's customary attention to detail is available everywhere you look, with Alcantara seating, Motogadget instrumentation, and raw aluminum tank and fenders. Now bringing your bike, board, and a friend to the ocean in style is in the realm of reality.
