Lovelies on the lake

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

At the in­cred­i­bly spiffy and ex­clu­sive Villa d’Este Con­corso d’Ele­ganza on the shores of beau­ti­ful Lake Como in north­ern Italy, BMW Group in­vited Nmoto to dis­play their new Nos­tal­gia model along­side their in­cred­i­bly rare and his­toric R7. Brought out from the Mu­nich mu­seum es­pe­cially for this ex­clu­sive event, the 1934 pro­to­type is a one-off model cre­ated by the Bavar­ian firm just be­fore World War II that was sub­se­quently lost for nearly 70 years. Con­sid­ered by many to be the mo­tor­cy­cle equiv­a­lent of the Mona Lisa, the R7 is the im­pe­tus and in­spi­ra­tion of the new Nmoto, which is based on the cur­rent, award-win­ning BMW R Nine T. Con­sist­ing of 96 hand­crafted parts, the NMoto of­fers gor­geous Art Deco style with wholly modern per­for­mance and re­li­a­bil­ity. It’s un­like any­thing else on the mar­ket to­day and is avail­able in a lim­ited pro­duc­tion se­ries. The Villa d’Este Con­corso d’Ele­ganza is an an­nual show in the tra­di­tion of the first con­cours d’el­e­gance held here in 1929. Cel­e­brat­ing the beauty, de­sign and life­style of mo­tor­ing, the glam­orous fes­ti­val is at­tended by – in ad­di­tion to au­to­mo­tive en­thu­si­asts – celebri­ties, fashion scions, busi­ness moguls and in­dus­try ex­ec­u­tives.
