The new BMW R nineT is becoming one of the most popular bikes on the market. Its success is partly due to the possibility of customization and personalization, straight out of the factory, which makes of this wonderful bike the starting point for personal creativity.Many designers and customizers are giving their contribution by presenting their idea of nineT custom and you see all kinds of it: café racers as the beautiful "Creole" Brazilian, brat as the "Cyclone" of the Japanese designer Go Takamine, raicing pure as the "Highway Fighter", scrambler as the magnificent interpretations of our friend and designer Oberdan Bezzi, till the Dirt Track "Shaker" special interpretation of Toys Garage.Of course, we couldn't leave out the now famous Kevils Speed Shop in Devon UK, which creates wonderful interpretations based on R-series BMWs with air-cooled boxer engines.Kev Hill, head of Kevils, has thought a lot before realizing his idea of the nineT Tracker, the "Kevils Rat".The red matt finished paint has beeen rubbed around the edges to give it a vintage look and the pinstriping was masterfully made by Striper Nefarious. The pinstriping and the Monza fuel tank cap give the bike a look from the 60s. The cylinder head protections have also been painted in red in contrast with the big black boxers. Wonderful the handmade diamond-stitched saddle.The rims have been powder coated in white and mounted by Continental TKC80 tyres. A new bracket unit, which incorporates a Motogadget Motoscope Pro, has been fabricated to hold the Halo headlight and bring it closer to the fork, painted in black. Low, wide handlebars with Motogadget barend indicators and LSL mirrors, have been mounted to give a more balanced riding position.Particular the Remus exhaust, while the air box disappears and is replaced with K&N cone filters. At the back of the bike are LED lights and indicators mounted in the ends of the subframe tubes.We have never hidden our appreciation for the magnificent builds of Kevils Speed Shop, that we "Love"!... but this nineT leaves us a bit confused ... probably it's just a matter of taste.Foto Point Studios, Torbay
