Enjoy the Ride // Romain Rolus' BMW R nineT

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose your BMW R NineT?
I’m a huge fan of custom bikes. They can be just like us, an extension of us, unique in our own way. The
BMW R NineT was a great choice : it is reliable, powerful and offers a lot of custom possibilities.

I bought a 2017 stock BMW R NineT Racer. Then I removed the front part, painted it all black and, in the end, I got a beautiful and unique bike.

Respect The Machine // Stephen Hagans' BMW R NineT

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose your BMW R NineT?
I was intrigued with cafe racers and initially wanted to buy an old
BMW R100 to tinker with, but ultimately landed on a BMW R NineT. I really wanted something that didn’t need much work done on the engine and could be reliably ridden. Didn’t hurt that the R NineT is such a beautiful bike and has loads of potential for customization whether that’s a cafe, scrambler, brat or something in between.
