For the seventh time, BMW Motorrad is highlighting the customizing potential of its models in cooperation with selected customiser garages. With a total of 11 models, the entire customising range will be on show at the stand of BMW Motorrad extending over an area of approx. 180 square metres – from the individually customised series production bike to true custom bike treasures requiring a great deal of craft skills.

The highlight is the new BMW Motorrad Concept R 18 /2, which, following its digital presentation at the EICMA, can now be experienced exclusively at close range. With the modern custom cruiser, BMW Motorrad adds a new facet to its heritage concept.

At the Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este on Lake Como the BMW Motorrad Concept R 18 celebrated its much acclaimed world premiere. Now BMW Motorrad is showing the second sensational Concept Bike based on the Big Boxer at the Custombike-Show.

The BMW Motorrad Concept R 18 /2 is the stylistic counterpart to the Concept R 18: a modern, dynamic custom cruiser with a somewhat rougher performance appeal.

The show also features the BMW Motorrad R 5 Homage, which represents the history of the brand. Other accents are provided by selected “SoulFuel Bikes”, converted bikes by renowned customisers based on current as well as earlier BMW motorcycles.

The Maximator based on the BMW R 1200 C is another highlight. The custom bike was built with meticulous manual care by the BMW Motorrad development engineer Ulf Musekamp, who was also involved in the realisation of the BMW R nineT family.
