With the former motorcycle racer Roland Sands and his Team BMW Design definitely found the perfect Partner to create a high-class custom and performance bike with technical finesse in combinatioan with an outstanding design.
40 Years ago BMW unveiled their "Stroke Six" flagship model BMW R 90S with a top speed of over 200 km/h (124 mph), making it the fastest production bike of its days. “The BMW R 90 S hails from an era in which bikers were regarded as outlaws,” comments Edgar Heinrich, Head of BMW Motorrad Design. “There was something rebellious about it – it was fast, loud and wild. Pure emotion. And it has retained its fascination to this day.”
Unlike other custom bikes, the BMW Concept Ninety can be – indeed begs to be – ridden. The motorcycle and all its components have been designed with top performance in mind.
