BMW R 5 Hommage Motorcycle
Built to celebrate the 80th anniversary of BMW's legendary boxer, the BMW R 5 Hommage Motorcycle is a carefully updated take on the classic. Dreamed up by BMW Motorrad head designer Ola Stenegard and brought to life by builders Ronna and Benna Norén and Sebastian Gutsch, it has a custom frame that's very similar to the original, yet adds in modern elements like a comfortable rear suspension and modern front fork. The engine is an original R 5, restored to glory and paired with a supercharger and custom stainless steel exhaust for added power. Finishing off the bike are a hand-hammered steel tank with ghosted black paint, a one-off seat covered in hand-stitched leather, and custom handlebars with machined, adjustable controls. A fitting tribute to a great pre-war bike.
