BMW Motorrad will begin selling a new range of custom parts for their line of R nineT Heritage models in collaboration with Roland Sands Design. This new “Machined” range of customizing parts for the R nineT, R nineT Pure, R nineT Scrambler, R nineT Racer and R nineT Urban G/S is being added to the Original BMW Motorrad Accessories line. As BMW put it, “turning a motorbike into an unmistakably unique specimen is something that particularly fuels the motorcycling passion of many fans.”
Produced in aluminium with a special manufacturing technique ensures a surface quality with attractive contrasts between glossy black and aluminium. The parts are initially made from an aluminium forging blank using a CNC-controlled machine tool, after they undergo elaborate hand-polishing before application of a black coating. Selected areas are then milled once more so that the original distinctive aluminium surface becomes visible again.
All “Machined Parts” bear a BMW logo or a BMW Motorrad inscription. The inscription “by Roland Sands Design” is also applied to emphasise the designer’s signature style.
The following “Machined Parts” are now available from BMW Motorrad dealerships:
- Cylinder head covers Machined
- Oil filler neck lid Machined
- Belt cover Machined
- Headlight cover Machined
- Handlebar end cover Machined
