In 1934 BMW unveiled its now-legendary R7, an enormously idiosyncratic concept motorcycle with a heavy art-deco visual theme. Originally intended to replace the R16 as BMW’s new flagship model, only a single example of the 793cc prototype was ever built. After being lost through the sands of time, the R7 was rediscovered in 2005, at which time it underwent a ground-up restoration. The completed project served as the basis for NMoto’s bolt-on Nostalgia kit.
Despite the popularity and hype of the Nostalgia kit, its nearly $50,000 price-tag meant it was only available to an elite and affluent few. Recognizing its lack of accessibility, the South Florida shop has now introduced a new, less elaborate, more affordable R7-inspired bolt-on kit dubbed the R sevenT. Compatible with all BMW R nineT models, the kit is fully street-legal, doesn’t require any cutting or welding, and is reversible at any time. Utilizing the donor’s stock controls, the kit is available with a number of add-ons such as hand-made stainless steel fishtail exhausts, an air-cleaner and throttle-body relocation kit. Available for preorder now, the NMoto R sevenT kit is priced at $6,950. The kit is also being offered directly through select BMW Motorrad dealerships.
