Diamond Atelier, out of Munich, has built a reputation for making some absolutely gorgeous street-ready custom motorcycles. Yet, much to the chagrin of fans everywhere, they had never made anything quite off-road-friendly. That is, until now with their BMW R65 248-based ‘Groot’ scrambler.

Named after Marvel’s living tree Guardian of the Galaxy — a nod to their hugely-popular Iron Man-inspired series — this Beamer-based bike is actually an available series, not just a one-off custom. That means you can purchase one for yourself. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t highly altered. In fact, changes include completely refurbished black-anodized forks, double brake discs with Tokico calipers, fully-adjustable Wilbers rear shocks, fully rebuild engines with Siebenrock PowerKits for a boost in horsepower and torque, knobby tires, and your choice of two different fuel tanks with the option for custom graphics. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Pricing starts at $25,000.

Purchase: $25,000+
