The Concept Ninety.

A tribute to a golden era of motorcycling.

In 2013, BMW Motorrad celebrated the 40th birthday of a real icon: the BMW R 90 S. With a top speed of almost 200 km/h, it was one of the fastest motorcycles of its time. This was facilitated by what was at the time a revolutionary innovation; never before had a designer contributed to the development of a motorcycle. Yet it was precisely this that let to the pioneering front trim panel on the BMW R 90 S. Which was also available as standard for the first time. Soon, other manufacturers would follow suit and develop an aerodynamically optimised front and rear trim.

Concept. Experiment. Design.
The BMW Motorrad Design team

Taking its inspiration from this model, BMW Motorrad, in collaboration with the legendary Roland Sands Design team, developed an exclusive reminiscence harking back to a golden motorcycling era: the Concept Ninety. Former motorcycle racer Roland Sands and his crew are among the most sought-after designers in the whole custom bike scene. Their design and technology skills along with their collaboration with the BMW Motorrad Design Team resulted in the BMW Concept Ninety: an exclusive motorcycle oozing self-confidence.

The resemblance to the BMW R 90 S is unmistakeable: the trim, fuel tank, seat and rear section are clearly based on the classic design of the R 90 S. As was usual at the time, the Concept Ninety picks up on the visual separation of the upper ergonomics and aerodynamic trim and the black engine and chassis section.

The body was carefully hand-crafted. The front trim, the fuel tank and the rear section boast high-grade brushed aluminium features. By contrast, the powerful orange of the Concept Ninety recalls the legendary "Daytona Orange" of the BMW R 90 S. This special colour scheme is a tribute to the original from the 70s.

The single lamp design is also a sporty interpretation of the classic model. Halogen lamps were the state-of-the-art at the time. Today the Concept Ninety is equipped with today's latest LED technology. The air-cooled 2-cylinder flat twin engine sits below the trim-covered sections. All technical parts of the engine are clearly visible and were consciously painted black. They symbolise the concentrated power, precision and high performance of this engine.
