French fashion house Hermes is not new to the world of motor powered vehicles. We have helicopters and cars in collaboration with the brand. Today we take a look at their one-off motorcycle in collaboration with Yamaha. This is the second time that the two companies have worked together.
“Hermes craftsmen were let loose to combine ‘mechanics and leather, to fulfil the dreams of motorcycles’. The idea was, according to Yamaha and Hermes, to “Reinforce the sculptural lines of this unique object and underline its emotional power.”
The result has the £20k machine’s non-mechanical parts dressed in Skipper buffalo leather, the main parts being the tank, seat, mudguards, headlight cover, exhaust silencers and grips.
Finishing touches include brushed aluminium mirrors, meter case and exhaust.”
More images of the motorcycle follow after the jump.
