Bahrain Custom Made.
We can’t think of a more fitting way to begin a new year than to put your heart and soal into making something absolutely cool – in this case, BMW Motorrad Head-Honcho Ali Al Asfoor decided that he wanted to sink his teeth into creating yet another memorable masterpiece – a custom BMW R nineT.
If you follow this space regularly, you’d know that this isn’t the first time we’ve featured a bizarre work of two-wheeled art from Ali; a few months ago he created two custom R nineT Models with a “love-it-or-hate-it” paint scheme and a flavor that will appeal to enthusiasts who can acutely appreciate what individual customization is all out.
What makes the BMW R nineT unique?
Well, the one that you see pictured here has a custom yellow paint job along with a brown saddle and contrasting yellow stitching. But you don’t need details like that to fall in love with a R nineT. Notice the engine justting out frm both sides of the bikes? Tha’s because the R nineT has a Flat-Twin Boxer engine mounted in frame – and that gorgeos looking lump is air-cooled.
Perhaps the best feature about the R nineT is how extensively it can be customized simply by using all-BMW parts; from a single Akrapovic exhaust, to solo seats, to Café-Racer style handle bars, this is one extremely versatile motorcycle.
Owing to its low center gravity, lightweight and an inherent balance by virtue of its engine placement, the nineT is the preferred bike of choice for those with stunt inclinations.
Why buy one?
Well, if those looks don’t get you to whip out the change, then all ou need to do is hop on and go for a ride- something that local BMW Motorrad distributor is more than happy to rrange when you walk into the showroom.
The BMW R nineT is a sophisticated piece of machinery, but it belies that fact with its relatively simple exterior lines and its user friendliness – even for a novice biker.
Combine this with standard safety features such as anti lock brakes and it’s not that hard a choice – maybe when it comes down to choosing a color perhaps.
