BMW Motorrad South Africa has launched a stunning BMW R NineT with a 1200cc boxere engine - retro in looks, great in performance and customisation promise.

MUNICH, Germany - With the introduction of the BMW Concept 90 in 2013 Roland Sands Design showed the potential for customising an actual BMW bike, a feature that so far has kept Harley-Davidson top of the heap.

Since then the design shop and BMW Motorrad have worked closely to make custom parts available to Motorrad customers, says the company.

With this new co-operation it’s now possible for BMW Motorrad customers worldwide to buy these custom parts.


Sands Design claims to offer high-quality customising parts for BMW Motorrad’s unique roadster, the R nineT. For example an engine breast plate, valve covers, oil-filler caps, the so-called "flat-out Enzo seat", a gauge housing, a headlight bezel, rear axle plugs and many other manufactured parts expressing the individuality of the R nineT.

The parts will be available for delivery by March 2015. They can be bought through Roland Sands Design’s dealers of participating BMW Motorrad dealers
