Orlando Bloom may be known as a “big time movie star,” (says Ola Stenegärd, BMW Motorrad designer) but not everyone knows about his passion for motorbikes. As a long-standing fan of BMW motorcycles, Orlando Bloom owns and rides a number of BMW models including old classics. For his own custom bike project he chose the BMW S1000R.
He asked his good friend, Michael “Woolie” Woolaway, head of the Deus Ex Machina custom shop in Venice, CA, USA, to work with him to bring his custom S1000R vision into reality. The result of the cooperation is a stunning one-off four cylinder roadster.
The S1000R Custom and Orlando Bloom had their first test ride in the Malibu Hills while shooting “4CYL,” a production by Arthur de Kersauson and Clement Beauvais in cooperation with BMW Motorrad. You can see the video below:
