In a 90 year celebration of BMW motorrad and 40 years of the BMW R 90 S, the german manufacturer has joined forces with american expert custom bike
builder and 250GP national champion road racer roland sands to create the 'BMW concept ninety'. presented at the concorso d’eleganza villa d’este 2013
in lago como, the concept ninety revisits 1973 - a time when the R 90 S one of the fastest production bikes of its day entered production - resurrecting the
spirit of the emotionally charged superbike with a harmonious unison of man and machine. working back and forth from the BMW design headquarters
in munich and sands' workshop in long beach california, the collaborative venture brings to life a full-bred runner with a 900 cc air-cooled flat-twin boxer
engine boasting upwards to 115 horsepower. hand crafted from aluminum, the concept ninety weighs just under 190kg, where the upper ergonomic and
aerodynamic bodywork is visually separated from the black engine and chassis.
