Our new paint colours.
Update to the existing range of colours form BMW Motorrad.
<p>We regularly freshen up the standard colours on numerous models. Option 719 colours are especially surprising, with effective colour combinations that make your bike look even more unique.</p> <p>Here is an overview of the highlights.</p>
Concept R 18 roars into life.
BMW Motorrad custom concept unveiled at Villa d’Este.
<p>It’s the world premiere that the custom scene has been eagerly awaiting – a BMW Motorrad custom concept featuring a new prototype flat-twin engine – the highest capacity boxer motorcycle ever produced. Simply christened ‘Concept R 18’, this pure, stripped-down, raked-out bike gives more than a hint of what’s coming our way in the cruiser segment.</p>
Soul-searching in the metal.
A futuristic work of art from Blechmann.
<p>Bernhard Naumann is also known as the Tin Man in the customising scene. He primarily creates sheet metal parts for custom bikes that are reminiscent of futuristic art. When he gets an R nineT, he does precisely what shouldn't be done. </p>
Berlin Calling.
Big-city feeling with the Track Grinder.
<p>For the first step, there are many stumbling blocks. Yet the Berlin forge Urban Motor didn't let itself be thrown off course when it created the world's first R nineT custom bike – showing a great deal of courage in doing so.&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; </p>
The imposter.
Violent impostor of El Solitario.
<p>Deceitful and unloved are not attributes people like to associate themselves with. David Borrás on the other hand forces disrespectful comments with his custom bike<em> Impostor</em>. Why is this the case?&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; </p>
Rediscover the darkness.
The 9 Tracker opens eyes.
<p>Large quantities of black powder coating cover the 9 Tracker in a black robe. Those wishing to understand the motorcycle from Blitz Motorcycles must approach it like a masterpiece.&nbsp; </p>
It's an ambush.
Stockholm syndrome takes everyone prisoner.
<p>The Unique Custom Cycles forge actually doesn't have much to do with Café racers. But when the Swedish customisers received an R nineT, they put together a bike in record time that is as captivating as a kidnapping.&nbsp; </p>
Get up and go.
Back to the future with Cherry's Highway Fighter.
<p>Of all things, the BMW R 7 from 1934 was used by customizer Kaichiroh Kurosu as inspiration for a futuristic bike called <em>Highway Fighter</em>. R nineT with the futuristic look, made by Cherry's Company.&nbsp; </p>
Dirt Track Vibes.
The Cyclone from BratStyle.
<p>Bratty’s R nineT is living up to its name, <em>Cyclone</em>, and kicking up a great deal of dust. Customizer Go Takamine proves once more the uniqueness of the Brat Style he created. Dirt-Track-Vibes on. Pure Soulfuel.&nbsp; </p>
Relax or Race.
With the Clubman Racer from 46Works.
<p>An evening spin off into the mountains and a Sunday afternoon out on the race track – the Japanese Shiro Nakajima had specific ideas of what he wanted to do with his R nineT conversion. With the <em>Clubman Racer,</em> he created an all-rounder entirely according to his own taste. And nevertheless meets the taste of the scene. </p>
Not another boxer.
Hide Motorcycle shapes the R nineT into sporting equipment.
<p>The fact that Hideya Togashi calls his R nineT a plain and simple <em>Boxer</em> is an excessive understatement. Because the custom bike in the seventies racing look is neither plain nor simple. An inventory.&nbsp; </p>
With balled fists.
The Bavarian Fistfighter from Rough Crafts.
<p>Made in Taiwan as a quality feature: customizer Winston Yeh creates motorcycles that awaken desires all over the world. His signature: clean, harmonious, black. Just like the R nineT conversion <em>Bavarian Fistfighter</em>.&nbsp; </p>
Born on an island.
R nineT Scrambler from Heiwa.
<p>The first meeting of Kengo Kimura and the R nineT Scrambler is like an awkward blind date, but the motorcycle quickly wins over the Japanese's affection – and the owner from Heiwa gives the bike the look of its home.&nbsp; </p>
Spring clean.
A minimalist from the Church of Choppers.
<p>When Jeff Wright from Church of Choppers converts a bike, only the essence remains. His version of the R nineT once again proves his extraordinary artistic talent.&nbsp; </p>
Master of metal.
A bike as hard as steel from Sosa Metalworks.
<p>Turning at a hidden place, Cristian Sosa cuts and shapes metal to make unique motorcycles. For his version of the R nineT, as an exception, it's only about the external values.&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; </p>
Whip up dust.
With the Maxx Headroom from Gunn Design.
<p>Dan Riley from Gunn Design proves with his modification of the BMW R nineT that he is a customizer of the next generation. With his Maxx Headroom, the American pursues two goals: beauty and wild action on the dusty ovals of the flat-track race.&nbsp;&nbsp; </p>
A Clockwork Orange.
The BMW Concept Ninety honours a style-defining icon.
<p>Customizer Roland Sands and the BMW Motorrad design team create a reminiscence of the legendary BMW R 90 S from the 70s. The BMW Concept Ninety pays homage to a golden motorcycle era.&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; </p>
Simple elegance.
Auto Fabrica makes the Type 18 design study from the R nineT.
<p>Less is more: That is the motto of the brothers Bujar and Gazmend Muharremi, who are among the best on the British scene with their custom shop Auto Fabrica and who are constantly setting trends. With an elegant design and curved lines, they have refined the R nineT and created a new Soul Fuel bike – the Type 18 is unexcited, but differently exciting.</p>
Racer goes club style.
LA Speed Shop turns nineT upside down.
<p>When it comes to choppers and bobbers, Chris Richardson from the LA Speed Shop is one of the most capable and well-known customizers in the USA. He has completely revamped the style of a BMW R nineT Racer. The result is a characterful custom bike that is inspired by the California club style and fits seamlessly into the Soulfuel series of bikes.</p>
Sportier and more dynamic than ever.
Continuous growth thanks to a consistent and new model policy.
<p>Several new models and technical innovations are driving the growth at BMW Motorrad: the new K-Series now comes with a transversely mounted engine, and the newly developed F-Series fuels the mid-range segment. At the end of the decade, BMW Motorrad will introduce one of the most important new releases on the market - the S 1000 RR marks the first time that the brand has entered the world of superbikes.&nbsp; </p>
The most important features of the Rever App.
<p>A powerful app in the palm of your hand; its simple interface allows users to quickly record rides, share with friends or community, and has many other powerful navigation features.<strong></strong></p>
Rev the engine.
Two entrepreneurs drive the community mindset forward.

BMW Motorrad Days 2018: the community loved it!
<p>It’s become a must-attend event for BMW motorbike fans. Set amidst the stunning mountains of Germany’s Zugspitze, more than 35,000 visitors came from all over the world to celebrate their common passion for motorised two-wheelers. This year’s highlights included break-neck performances by Busty Wolter and his freestyle motocrossers, as well as breath-taking shows by stunt riders Mattie Griffin and Dirk Manderbach, who got the audience cheering in astonishment. The wooden “cauldron” of the Motodrom was all about four roaring BMW R 25s, while tyres smoked and screeched at the drift show in the event arena. Another must-see was the presentation of the new series colours and special paint finishes – thanks to the design range “Option 719”, colourful new combinations spruced up the atmosphere of the exhibition tent. The excitement didn’t die out in the evening either: bands and DJs did their part to keep spirits high well into the night. The event was an all round success, entertaining from the start and ending on Sunday with typical German “Gemütlichkeit” (a cosy, relaxing feeling). Even as everyone started packing up to return to every corner of the world, plans are already in the works for the 19th BMW Motorrad Days, from 5-7 July 2019. Mark your calendars today!

The following is about small adventures on your doorstep and great journeys of discovery in far away places. Listen in and come along.    </p>
Concept R 18 roars into life.
BMW Motorrad custom concept unveiled at Villa d’Este.
<p>It’s the world premiere that the custom scene has been eagerly awaiting – a BMW Motorrad custom concept featuring a new prototype flat-twin engine – the highest capacity boxer motorcycle ever produced. Simply christened ‘Concept R 18’, this pure, stripped-down, raked-out bike gives more than a hint of what’s coming our way in the cruiser segment.</p>
Soul-searching in the metal.
A futuristic work of art from Blechmann.
<p>Bernhard Naumann is also known as the Tin Man in the customising scene. He primarily creates sheet metal parts for custom bikes that are reminiscent of futuristic art. When he gets an R nineT, he does precisely what shouldn't be done. </p>
Berlin Calling.
Big-city feeling with the Track Grinder.
<p>For the first step, there are many stumbling blocks. Yet the Berlin forge Urban Motor didn't let itself be thrown off course when it created the world's first R nineT custom bike – showing a great deal of courage in doing so.&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; </p>
The imposter.
Violent impostor of El Solitario.
<p>Deceitful and unloved are not attributes people like to associate themselves with. David Borrás on the other hand forces disrespectful comments with his custom bike<em> Impostor</em>. Why is this the case?&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; </p>
Rediscover the darkness.
The 9 Tracker opens eyes.
<p>Large quantities of black powder coating cover the 9 Tracker in a black robe. Those wishing to understand the motorcycle from Blitz Motorcycles must approach it like a masterpiece.&nbsp; </p>
It's an ambush.
Stockholm syndrome takes everyone prisoner.
<p>The Unique Custom Cycles forge actually doesn't have much to do with Café racers. But when the Swedish customisers received an R nineT, they put together a bike in record time that is as captivating as a kidnapping.&nbsp; </p>
Get up and go.
Back to the future with Cherry's Highway Fighter.
<p>Of all things, the BMW R 7 from 1934 was used by customizer Kaichiroh Kurosu as inspiration for a futuristic bike called <em>Highway Fighter</em>. R nineT with the futuristic look, made by Cherry's Company.&nbsp; </p>
Dirt Track Vibes.
The Cyclone from BratStyle.
<p>Bratty’s R nineT is living up to its name, <em>Cyclone</em>, and kicking up a great deal of dust. Customizer Go Takamine proves once more the uniqueness of the Brat Style he created. Dirt-Track-Vibes on. Pure Soulfuel.&nbsp; </p>
Relax or Race.
With the Clubman Racer from 46Works.
<p>An evening spin off into the mountains and a Sunday afternoon out on the race track – the Japanese Shiro Nakajima had specific ideas of what he wanted to do with his R nineT conversion. With the <em>Clubman Racer,</em> he created an all-rounder entirely according to his own taste. And nevertheless meets the taste of the scene. </p>
Not another boxer.
Hide Motorcycle shapes the R nineT into sporting equipment.
<p>The fact that Hideya Togashi calls his R nineT a plain and simple <em>Boxer</em> is an excessive understatement. Because the custom bike in the seventies racing look is neither plain nor simple. An inventory.&nbsp; </p>
With balled fists.
The Bavarian Fistfighter from Rough Crafts.
<p>Made in Taiwan as a quality feature: customizer Winston Yeh creates motorcycles that awaken desires all over the world. His signature: clean, harmonious, black. Just like the R nineT conversion <em>Bavarian Fistfighter</em>.&nbsp; </p>
Born on an island.
R nineT Scrambler from Heiwa.
<p>The first meeting of Kengo Kimura and the R nineT Scrambler is like an awkward blind date, but the motorcycle quickly wins over the Japanese's affection – and the owner from Heiwa gives the bike the look of its home.&nbsp; </p>
Spring clean.
A minimalist from the Church of Choppers.
<p>When Jeff Wright from Church of Choppers converts a bike, only the essence remains. His version of the R nineT once again proves his extraordinary artistic talent.&nbsp; </p>
Master of metal.
A bike as hard as steel from Sosa Metalworks.
<p>Turning at a hidden place, Cristian Sosa cuts and shapes metal to make unique motorcycles. For his version of the R nineT, as an exception, it's only about the external values.&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; </p>
Whip up dust.
With the Maxx Headroom from Gunn Design.
<p>Dan Riley from Gunn Design proves with his modification of the BMW R nineT that he is a customizer of the next generation. With his Maxx Headroom, the American pursues two goals: beauty and wild action on the dusty ovals of the flat-track race.&nbsp;&nbsp; </p>
A Clockwork Orange.
The BMW Concept Ninety honours a style-defining icon.
<p>Customizer Roland Sands and the BMW Motorrad design team create a reminiscence of the legendary BMW R 90 S from the 70s. The BMW Concept Ninety pays homage to a golden motorcycle era.&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; </p>
Simple elegance.
Auto Fabrica makes the Type 18 design study from the R nineT.
<p>Less is more: That is the motto of the brothers Bujar and Gazmend Muharremi, who are among the best on the British scene with their custom shop Auto Fabrica and who are constantly setting trends. With an elegant design and curved lines, they have refined the R nineT and created a new Soul Fuel bike – the Type 18 is unexcited, but differently exciting.</p>
Racer goes club style.
LA Speed Shop turns nineT upside down.
<p>When it comes to choppers and bobbers, Chris Richardson from the LA Speed Shop is one of the most capable and well-known customizers in the USA. He has completely revamped the style of a BMW R nineT Racer. The result is a characterful custom bike that is inspired by the California club style and fits seamlessly into the Soulfuel series of bikes.</p>
Sportier and more dynamic than ever.
Continuous growth thanks to a consistent and new model policy.
<p>Several new models and technical innovations are driving the growth at BMW Motorrad: the new K-Series now comes with a transversely mounted engine, and the newly developed F-Series fuels the mid-range segment. At the end of the decade, BMW Motorrad will introduce one of the most important new releases on the market - the S 1000 RR marks the first time that the brand has entered the world of superbikes.&nbsp; </p>
The most important features of the Rever App.
<p>A powerful app in the palm of your hand; its simple interface allows users to quickly record rides, share with friends or community, and has many other powerful navigation features.<strong></strong></p>
Rev the engine.
Two entrepreneurs drive the community mindset forward.

BMW Motorrad Days 2018: the community loved it!
<p>It’s become a must-attend event for BMW motorbike fans. Set amidst the stunning mountains of Germany’s Zugspitze, more than 35,000 visitors came from all over the world to celebrate their common passion for motorised two-wheelers. This year’s highlights included break-neck performances by Busty Wolter and his freestyle motocrossers, as well as breath-taking shows by stunt riders Mattie Griffin and Dirk Manderbach, who got the audience cheering in astonishment. The wooden “cauldron” of the Motodrom was all about four roaring BMW R 25s, while tyres smoked and screeched at the drift show in the event arena. Another must-see was the presentation of the new series colours and special paint finishes – thanks to the design range “Option 719”, colourful new combinations spruced up the atmosphere of the exhibition tent. The excitement didn’t die out in the evening either: bands and DJs did their part to keep spirits high well into the night. The event was an all round success, entertaining from the start and ending on Sunday with typical German “Gemütlichkeit” (a cosy, relaxing feeling). Even as everyone started packing up to return to every corner of the world, plans are already in the works for the 19th BMW Motorrad Days, from 5-7 July 2019. Mark your calendars today! We look forward to seeing you.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
