Marvel’s character Groot from the hit Guardians of the Galaxy is a creature of few words, but the bike that bears his name has plenty to share. Built on a BMW 248-type frame, the bike has a shorter swing arm and a fully adjustable dual rear suspension. Given the 17-inch BMW Snowflake rims with TKC 80 knobby tires—which seem to be a callout out to Groot’s own knots—those dual shocks might just be needed for where this bike can go. Pairing up with that rear suspension is a refurbished and black anodized 53mm USD forks. Diamond Atelier completely rebuilt the BMW R65 engine with the help of performance house Siebenrock, which provided the 860ccm PowerKit to increase both torque and horsepower. A pair of new Mikuni TM36-31s were added as well. The electrical system had to be completely rebuilt, and Diamond Atelier made it a point to keep all those wires completely hidden. And there was plenty to hide. The bike features several Motogadget components, such as their Bluetooth m-unit and their keyless RF-ID lock). Motogadget also provided the CNC machined m-grips and their new mirrors, which are made of polished aluminum instead of glass.
Groot purchasers can choose from a number of different options to customize the bike for their preferences, including tank shapes and custom artwork. Revving the throttle on this custom will clearly announce who is coming—“I am Groot!”
