BMW R nineT conversion by Hornig
German special parts and accessories company Hornig have just released details of their BMW R nineT special. And it’s not a bad looking bike at all.
The firm, which started trading in 2001 and specialises in parts for all types of BMW motorcycles, took a 2015 R nineT with 24,000 miles on its clocks and added some of their own accessories to individualise the bike.
- First ride: Honda CB1000R - naked Blade or funky retro?
- Roads: Dunlop confirms Suzuki split
- MotoGP: Dovizioso fends off Marquez attack for stunning Qatar win
- New tyre review: Dunlop SportSmart TT
Starting at the front, Hornig painted the mudguard and tank matt khaki green and then mounted their own rear mudguard, also in khaki green, to help prevent water being flicked up over the rider. The seat has been recovered in black leather with grey ‘nineT’ logos on its sides and retro aluminium infill panels added to the bike’s side.
To clean up the back end, the bike’s licence plate holder has been removed and a lateral licence plate bracket added while a Remus Hexacone exhaust wrapped in black heat protective tape not only sounds far better than the stock pipe, it looks great as well.
With final touches that include crash protection, a side stand lug enlarger, new bars and mirrors and an AC Schnitzer Light Bomb LED headlight, not to mention various covers, the bike is topped off with chunky Conti TKC70 tyres.
All of the parts used to customise this R nineT can be bought from Hornig. Click here to visit their website.
