It’s not easy to make a custom bike in Germany. The country requires inspections and product certification services from a company in their Technical Inspection Association (TÜV). To meet the requirements, every modded part needs a stamped approval, and changes to the bike’s frame are pretty much verboten.
So Vagabund Moto comes to the game already severely handicapped, but that didn’t stop them from creating a stunning and sleek custom. Vagabund started with a BMW R nineT, which was commissioned by BMW’s Austrian distributor. The bike received a new bolt-on rear end that includes an integrated LED taillight. In the front, a new headlight housing as installed with a 1,000-lumen Koso Thunderbolt headlight, all above a new front fender.
A blackened Remus exhaust was created exclusively for the bike, and the dash received a Motogadget speedometer. The whole bike was blacked out with a custom paint job and black powder coating, with a handsome black leather seat to finish out the look. Vagabund will recreate the bike for you in exchange for USD$32K, or bring in your own R nineT for just the upgrades.
