BMW’s signature boxer engine layout for its motorcycles makes for a great empty canvas for custom motorcycle builders. Over the last few years, we have seen some really interesting BMW motorcycle-based projects. The newest one that caught our eye is this stunning retro-modern bobber created by Estonia-based customizers Renard Speed Shop. Called Reimagined, the slammed and stanced motorcycle has been built using BMW’s new R1250 R as a base, which might come as a surprise to many. Renard has completely altered the stance for the motorcycle from a focused naked street racer to an upright performance cruiser.
The custom motorcycle wears handmade bodywork crafted out of aluminum. The shape of the radiator grille might remind you of the mad $137K Lotus C-01 concept motorcycle from 2014. The grille and the shroud are precision-machined from billet aluminum. The pair of cylinder heads of BMW’s new boxer engine protrude out of the bodywork, while the K&N air filters hide behind winglet-styled canards. The aerodynamic fork covers are 3D-printed and flank the stacked headlights. The BMW R1250 R Reimagined has a bobber-style floating seat with an integrated taillight and the motorcycle is equipped with a titanium Akrapovič race exhaust system taken from a Ducati Panigale Superleggera. It rides on Jonich spoked wheels and gets a TFT display that looks like the same one found on the standard R1250 R. There’s no word on the pricing of this one-off masterpiece, but we won’t be surprised if it is well beyond $100,000.
