A customer approached Austrian motorcycle company Titan and asked them to design a custom bike for him that would be more fit for the European city streets. He was currently riding a 2009 Harley-Davidson Road King and wanted something that could also handle driving through the Alps so that he could more easily get to his winter cabin.
Titan found a bike that was perfect for these demands—the 1986 BMW K100 Luxury Touring Scrambler. This bike was completely different than the customer’s current tastes. Although it turned out to be unlike anything the customer had ridden before, in the end, he loved Titan’s take on the bike.
Titan took the 1986 BMW K100 and stripped everything off that denotes luxury or touring. They took the 30-year-old motorcycle and updated the mechanicals and styling to make it ideal for the demands of European riding.
A new headlight assembly and custom subframe were specially fabricated for this build. Titan outfitted the K100 with New fork internals and shocks. The 987 cc flat inline-four engine was equipped with a Remus exhaust. The tank, headlight brackets and seat cowl were handmade from Blechmann Aluminium.
Finally, the custom BMW K100 Xaver was finished off with new wiring, micro switches and electronics. The analogue instruments from the original K100 were discarded. An all-digital Motogadget instrument display takes the place of the original panel.
The build was finished off with a single leather seat that features diamond cross-hatch stitching. The wheels are wrapped with TKC80 tires to complete the new look.
