The most audacious motorcycle launch of late has been the BMW R nineT. Who’d have thought that the clinical Germans would reveal a naked boxer with built-in options for customization? Even better, Ola Stenegärd’s design team have wasted no time in delivering pre-production models to selected custom builders. Here’s the first cab off the rank: ‘Track Grinder’ from Berlin-based Urban Motor.
After customizing bikes for nigh on 20 years, Unique Custom Cycles has a reputation most builders would die for. The Swedish company is known for its traditional chopper and drag racing builds, but its latest project—nicknamed The Stockholm Syndrome—is very different. It's a stunning cafe racer based on the new BMW R nineT.
