Our design consulting extends to vehicle customization. In the samples below no major mechanical components have been altered but the aesthetics of the original style are updated.
BMW K75 Streetfighter
This BMW K75S below is what this naked K75 streetfighter used to look like prior to its customization. The conversion was featured in various publications in print and online including the official facebook page of BMW Motorrad and SILODROME.
The design concept behind this conversion was to make the motorcycle look like it could have been done by the factory. All the fairing parts were stripped away and the tail section was re-purposed but its orientation was changed to suit the new look. The headlight came of off a different make and model, and the seat is custom built but other than that the entire motorcycle is stock.
The aluminum fuel tank was stripped and polished, the BMW emblems were replaced with a carbon fiber model
The original instrument cluster was moved closer to the narrow factory handle bar. The tail light is an LED strip which incorporates the brake light and the signal lights as well. It's a clear finish which almost disappears when not in use.
Rear view with the running light on. The license plate lights are incorporated into the plate holding bolts.
The original tail piece was rotated forward and the underside was covered with aluminum sheet metal.
The battery was left in its original location but replaced with an AGM sealed unit which takes up much less space and it can be turned on its side
The custom seat is done in a carbon fiber pattern and is built on an aluminum seat pan.
The bike featured factory BREMBO brakes with ABS.
The custom aluminum spoiler is shaped to conceal the instrument cluster and the number which was designed based on the original K75 typeface signifies the model.
The low profile modern headlight gives the bike an up to date look with the small LED signal lights attached to the headlight brackets.
