Not too many other motorcycle manufacturers can claim over 90 years of two-wheeled history to their name like BMW can. Debuting at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este 2013 in Italy, BMW and the equally legendary customizing team at Roland Sands Designs present the Concept Ninety, which nicely blends the best of classic bikes with the new technology and power of today's two-wheelers. Initially inspired by the 1973 BMW R 90 S - the powerhouse of its day - the Concept Ninety picks up a sculpted tank and tail that is coated in the R 90 S' famed racing orange. Within the body, an air-cooled flat-twin boxer engine coated in black turns the seven-spoke wheels, designed to mimic the old-school flavor of the original. BMW believes this is the perfect blend of heritage and technology and you'll be hard pressed to find much that can compare. See its journey from design to its first ride after the click.
