No, your eyes are not deceiving you, this is definitely one of the most bad-ass bikes ever built.

If Christopher Nolan saw this back when he was directing the now famed Batman Trilogy, we’re pretty sure it would’ve become one of the Dark Knights most celebrated rides.

Likewise, we’re also sure that the original designer of the Yamaha MT-07 didn’t have this particular vision of the two-wheeler. That said, you can bet the bank that the “Onyx Blade” is one hell of a bike to be reckoned with. The brainchild of custom bike builder Rough Crafts, the Taiwanese based outfit, who’s reputation for custom one-off’s is already stellar, has once again put it all on the line.

A significant step up from previous builds including the infamous “Bomber” from 2011, and the 2010 Iron Guerilla, the Onyx Blade is simply stealthy.

Covered in what can only be described as a Dark Night worthy scheme, the construction is actually comprised of matte black aluminum.

Add to that a slick grill covered headlight, a fork cover that looks like it could barrel through a stone wall and a Pirelli tires, the result is one bike that you might ride only once a month just to show it off. Or, you could throw on a Batman suit and scare the crap out of few people.

One of the most unique individuals you'll ever meet, largely because I enjoy having discussions about any and everything. A rigorous passion for fashion and fast cars, plus ... I won't eat up all the food if you invite me over for Sunday Football.
