Old Bike Australasia - - ON THE SHED -

In­spired by the leg­endary “uni­corn” BMW R7, a one-off 1934 pro­to­type, the new Florida-built Nmoto is a wholly mod­ern lim­ited pro­duc­tion mo­tor­cy­cle based on the cur­rent BMW R Nine T. Con­sist­ing of more than 74 hand­crafted parts, the Nmoto is lighter and faster than a stock R Nine T. Ap­pear­ing as if it came from pre-WWII Bavaria, the Nmoto pos­sesses BMW’s state-of-the-art 110hp boxer en­gine, six-speed gear­box, trac­tion con­trol, anti-lock brak­ing sys­tem, front and rear sus­pen­sion, and key­less ig­ni­tion, among many other fea­tures, while the ig­ni­tion lock and speedome­ter have been in­cor­po­rated into the head­lamp hous­ing. Avail­able in a lim­ited pro­duc­tion se­ries, the Mi­ami-based Nmoto is avail­able in 11 color com­bi­na­tions, with cus­tomiza­tion op­tions that in­clude ad­justable steer­ing, seat trim fin­ish, lug­gage box and pas­sen­ger seat. Or­ders are now be­ing taken with a fin­ished base price of US$49,500 and an ex­pected wait time of 3-6 months. For more de­tails and in­for­ma­tion, visit www.nmoto.com
