The BMW Concept Ninety Motorcycle Is Exactly What Retro Should Be

Roland Sands makes some of the most amazing and classy bikes we've ever seen. There's not Orange County Choppers trashiness from these brilliant craftsmen. It was made to celebrate the 90th anniversary of BMW Motorrad and the 40th of the BMW R 90 S, to which it borrows some design elements and pays homage. 

Edgar Heinrich, the head of BMW Motorrad Design, said of the original, with regards to what the design team wanted to create, "The BMW R 90 S goes back to a time when motorcyclists were regarded as social outlaws. There was something rebellious about them - they were fast, noisy and wild. It was all about pure emotion. And it remains fascinating to this day."

We think it's beautiful, and is a fantastic route for Motorrad to take with future road-goain designs.
