BMW Motorrad Spezial

Customization is at the heart of motorcycling. Not limited to the yards of chrome and block-long stretched American bikes, making a motorcycle your own unique statement is part and parcel of the experience. BMW Motorrad launched the R nineT with the goal of making an easily-customizable standard bike — and it's been so successful that BMW is launching an in-house line of custom parts. Called BMW Motorrad Spezial, it offers factory-installed parts like hand-painted tanks, valve covers, rearsets, seats, wheels, and levers. Starting in Fall 2017, you'll be able to configure the R nineT of your dreams online and have it delivered to your local dealership, ready-to-ride without having to turn a wrench.

  • Ironwood Custom BMW R80 Motorcycle

    Amsterdam-based Ironwood Motorcycles has been cranking out custom bikes since 2012. A BMW specialist, Ironwood's take on the BMW R80 is an excellent example of their craft. The bike features a massive list of customizations, with a unique rear subframe and leather seat, a wild stainless steel exhaust, and Hyperpro rear shock. Brembo-sourced brakes provide the stopping power, and a custom LED taillight, Fehling clipons, and rearset foot controls round out the package.

  • Lee Munro's Indian Scout

    Burt Munro might be one the all-time greatest do-it-yourselfers in the history of motorsport. In 1920, he purchased a new Indian Scout, and over the course of nearly 50 years, built it into a land speed record holder, one of wich still stands today. To memorialize the occasion, engineers at Indian Motorcycles have been working with Burt's great nephew, motorcycle racer Lee Munro, to build the modern incarnation of the Scout into a top speed contender at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Called "the Spirit of Munro," Indian has punched out the stock 69 cubic-inch v-twin to 79 cubic inches, bringing horsepower up to 165 with 110 lb. ft. of torque, far above the standard 100 hp and 72.2 lb. ft. Lightweight aluminum wheels from Roland Sands Design and a streamlined fairing that mimics the original complete the package. Lee makes his own attempt at the record books on August 13, 2017.
