Custom motorcycle expert Deus Ex Machina has treated us to an in-depth look at one of its earliest and most-loved bikes – the “Bali Dog” beachside cruiser.

The bike, based on a Yamaha Scorpio, was the very first build from Deus Ex Machina’s outpost in Bali, Indonesia back in 2008, and has since received a number of different updates. Deus Indonesia head honcho Dustin Humphrey originally stripped the two-stroke bike of its cheaper plastic parts and upgraded them with bespoke fenders and custom fittings to produce a mongrel-like appearance.

For the latest iteration, the “Bali Dog” receives an off-road upgrade for both enduro and mountain usage. An off-market plastic fender, Duro tires, Suzuki TS bars, a vintage lamp, a one-off seat and tank, and a number of performance tweaks give the bike a roaring attitude to complement its sleek and sexy, matte black aesthetic. Perfect for exploring Indonesia’s black sand slopes, temples and beaches.
