Florida firm creates kit to convert BMW R nineT into rare bike from the 1930s

It can be used to achieve similarities with the unique 1934 BMW R7. It was released as a single copy as a concept and was never produced. For its time, this prototype was quite breakthrough.

The Bavarian BMW R nineT came on the market six years ago. During this time, the model managed to become a cult among fans of motorcycle customization. One of the curious projects comes from Nmoto, which introduced a special kit called the Nmoto R sevenT for the BMW R nineT.

With its help, you can radically change the appearance of the bike, giving it a resemblance to the 1934 BMW R7 prototype. Recall that in the arsenal of Nmoto there is already a copy of the mystical prototype R7, presented two years ago. It was also based on the R nineT. True, such a set of fabulous money cost – 89,500 dollars. The new “reincarnation” of the BMW R7 is priced much cheaper – at least $ 6,950.

To install a kit on a motorcycle, the owner must have some knowledge of this area.

At the same time, no professional subtleties are required: the installation does without factory manipulations and chassis changes. The entire work comes down to removing most of the R nineT’s body and replacing those parts with an Nmoto kit.

According to Robb Report, the company is offering its customers a new fuel tank, fuel pump, hoses and filter, front and rear wheel fenders and brackets, a new taillight as well as a headlamp, direction indicators, steering wheel cover and more. At the same time, they did not touch all the fundamental components – the converted motorcycle has its “native” suspension, chassis, engine, brakes, wheels and seat.

Earlier AutoTimesNews said that Peugeot produces a line of motorcycles. We are talking about Peugeot Motorcycles, whose shares the Indian Mahindra began to buy back several years ago. The plans are to present seven new motorcycles at once in the period from 2021 to 2023.
