BMW R Nine T DA # 4 by Diamond Atelier


Custom motorcycle creators Diamond Atelier and streetwear label K1X have gotten together to create a gleaming custom BMW R nineT. Since the two brands originate from Munich, it was clear to both from the beginning that a BMW model had to serve as the starting point. The R nineT, a retro-styled roadster, was originally intended by BMW to be a “blank canvas for customizing.” Teaming up in 2015, the two Bavarian firms decided to customize the bike to combine both signature styles into one all-black masterpiece. Diamond Atelier provided the design and mechanical skills to actualize K1X’s vision for an aggressive, low-slung bike.

A 1180cc two-cylinder Boxer engine will kick out 115HP, and an improved suspension will give a smoother ride. Appearance-wise, the logos are made out of original sterling silver and the bike features a genuine diamond in typical Diamond Atelier manner. Other highlights include air intakes running through the handcrafted gas tank and reworked cutting-edge electronics to make the bike’s appearance as minimalistic as possible. Army-green details are said to nod at K1X’s upcoming FW16 “Core” collection.
