Differs Moto Gives BMW’s R9T A Retro Hand-Worked Alloy Transformation

Dec 2, 2020

Considering it was purposefully engineered to lend itself to easy-modification, it’s unsurprising that BMW’s R nineT is one of the most commonly customized motorcycles currently in production. Despite its prominence in the new wave customs scene, however, the vast majority of R9T builds are readily identifiable as being the Bavarian brand’s heritage machine, with its highly-distinctive tank and under-seat area. Wanting a more unique and personalized R9T, one owner turned to Lithuania’s Differs Moto, tasking the Vilnius-based shop with transforming the boxer-twin into an alloy-bodied tracker-meets-cafe-racer.

Beginning the project with a 2016 R9T specimen, the donor was stripped of all its bodywork and lighting before being treated to a new hand-worked, smoother and more elongated, retro-inspired tank with a Monza fuel cap and a super waspish matching tracker-esque tail section capped off with a bespoke black leather saddle. There’s also an incredibly tidy set of rear Koso indicators tucked on either side of the new tail section while out front micro-LED signals have been tacked onto the top of the radiator. Other details include a Koso LED headlight, a new set of bars, an Arrow exhuast, and a set of sticky Metzeler RaceTec rubber.
