German luxury motorcycle manufacturer BMW Motorrad has introduced “Machined” range of customising parts for the models R nineT, R nine T Pure, R nineT Scrambler, R nine T Racer and R nine T Urban G/S, informed the company in an official press statement.
Produced in high-quality aluminium, the design was created in collaboration with Roland Sands, the well-known customiser based in USA/California.
BMW Motorrad further added, "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. In the colour combination black-aluminium, the parts blend in particularly organically with the vintage look of the models.
The “Machined Parts” that are now available from BMW Motorrad dealerships include - Cylinder head covers Machined, Oil filler neck lid Machined, Belt cover Machined, Headlight cover Machined, Handlebar end cover Machined, Rear axle cover Machined, Bevel gear bearing cover Machined, and Swinging-arm pivot mount cover Machined.
Other “Machined Parts” products are in preparation.
