If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got.
By mastering the unexpected alliance of new technologies and craftsmanship, Dab Design shakes up the custombike rules and reinvents a little more each day its own playground.
By mastering the new manufacturing and design technologies, each step of a project is redefined, from the visualization of the final product to the manufacturing of custom parts. This atypical vision is the essence and the strength of Dab Design, founded in 2015
Plunged into the world of motorcycle and design by passion, specialized in engineering by vocation, Simon Dabadie and its team develop in a workshop at the heart of French Basque Country, a new kind of custom motorcycles.
An engineer focused on design or the reverse? A young guy hooked on eco-friendly technologies and not as useless as a greenish politics ... A young determined guy who knows how to think smart thanks to great motivations? It's Simon Dabadie.
Simon doesn’t start his builds with a smouldering angle grinder but scans the donor bike, in this case Honda’s revered NX650 Dominator, with the very latest 3D modelling equipment. And not just a quick shot with a fancy camera, each major component and areas in line for upgrade are captured and converted into photorealistic drawings. A detailed render is then revealed to the client for them to fine tune small intricacies.
