Bɾaggiпg tҺis BMW R пiпeT Һas beeп ɾeboɾп as a oпe-of-a-ƙiпd masteɾpiece tҺat will sootҺe youɾ soul

The project we’ll be featuring today hails from none other than Switzerland’s mighty VTR Customs – a revered workshop that’ll make no compromises on its quest to fabricate some of Europe’s most rad one-off rides. In the past, we drooled over a few of VTR’s most notable ventures, including a ravishing BMW R1200R (dubbed “Goodwood”) and a K100 that boasts wooden accents on its sexy bodywork.
This time around, we’ll dive in for a quick examination of the firm’s transformation of Bavaria’s almighty R nineT. The stock bike is put in motion by a twin-cooled DOHC boxer-twin, with four radially aligned valves per cylinder and a colossal displacement of 1,170cc. At about 7,250 revs, this untamed monstrosity is perfectly capable of summoning up to 109 ponies, while a generous torque output of no less than 85 pound-feet (116 Nm) will be generated at approximately 6,000 rpm.
A six-speed transmission carries the engine’s wicked force to the rear wheel via a shaft final drive, leading to a generous top speed of 135 mph (217 kph). Given its state-of-the-art characteristics, it’s no wonder many a workshop will pick Motorrad’s beast as their weapon of choice when undertaking a bespoke exploit.
VTR’s moto pros kicked things off by manufacturing a slim aluminum tail section by hand, as well as a neat front fairing that hugs the bike’s headlight module. As soon as the new bodywork items were crafted, a fresh leather saddle has been meticulously upholstered in-house. Furthermore, the original hoops were removed to make room for a pair of laced Kineo counterparts with a diameter of 17 inches on both ends.
In the powertrain department, Motorrad’s finest received a set of K&N pod filters and a top-grade Akrapovič exhaust system that’ll enable the boxer-twin mill to breathe a little more freely. Additionally, front and rear suspension duties are handled by a selection of Ohlins items.
The cockpit is now adorned by cafe racer-style handlebars from LSL’s range and a Motogadget ChronoClassic speedometer, while the factory fuel tank wears a Monza filler cap to round things out. Honestly, VTR’s painstaking efforts seem to have paid off, don’t they?
