BMW R80/7 ‘Cohiba’ By Cytech Motorcycles

Usually, when we see bikes out of places like South Africa, they tend to be a little more rugged and unrefined. It’s not that they aren’t well-built – just that the motorcycles are often purpose-built for less-than-ideal terrain. This custom BMW R80/7 bobber from Cytech, however, sits on the opposite side of the spectrum almost entirely.

Built for a pair of former customers who had previously ordered a Martini-inspired Beamer, this bike was created to highlight a very specific indulgence: Cohiba cigars. Not only can this be seen in the tank icon and paint job, but there’s a specially designed cigar holder on the leather tank wrapping, perfect for a pair of cigars (as well as a cutter and lighter). On top of that, other improvements include a complete rebuild of the 800cc engine and gearbox, the forks were lowered, new bobbed fenders were attached, and more. While its place of origin is nearly half a world away, we believe this gorgeous bike wouldn’t look out of place cruising the streets of Havana – where Cohiba calls home.
