IWC Morphs The BMW R1250GS Into A Stunning Futuristic Hyper-Naked Bike

Mar 13, 2020

Ironwood Custom Motorcycles is best known for its signature bobbed airhead BMW builds, with the renowned bespoke bike outfit largely being credited for giving birth to the now-popular genre. Despite still utilizing a donor bike from the Bavarian brand, IWC’s latest work is a major departure from its hallmark R-series builds, with the Dutch shop most recently applying its world-class design and execution skills to BMW’s latest flagship Adventure model, the R1250GS.

The donor has been rid of its stock clothes, and in its place now sits a complete set of angular one-off bodywork adorned in a black livery with Tron-esque geometric neon orange striping, with a suspended tail set in a bespoke tubular subframe, a brawny belly-pan, sharp radiator shrouds, a sleek, angular front fender, and a futuristic headlight nacelle — housing an LED from BMW’s S1000XR — that looks like it was penned by Kiska in 2025. The tank that now houses the 2020 GS’s cutting-edge TFT display, fuel cap, and a sunken transparent case to house a watch from TW Steel, which commissioned the project. Other noteworthy elements include custom hexagonal-stitched leather upholstery on the seat and tank, machined top triple, cylinder heads, and engine cover, carbon fiber fork sleeves, a custom exhaust, a protruding 1000RR taillight, an insanely-trick set of forged carbon fiber Rotobox wheels.
