At the Motor Bike Expo in Verona has been presented the BMW R nineT prepared by Frank Augello of Moto Sumisura for the biologist and documentary filmmaker, Alessandra Soresina, with an interview with Ola Stenegard, head of design at BMW Motorrad.It has been called "A work of art inspired by the legendary 1923 R32". This is the interview with Ola Stenegard made by the magazine Moto.it. "Honestly, before today, I did not know what to expect, because Sumisura has many arrows to its bow, but when he revealed it, it has proved to be a motorcycle as only he can do," said Stenegard "It has all his trademarks , there is a lot of work in every detail, and of each one he can tell the story: what inspired him in doing the number plates brackets, why he chose to do those brass pieces, why the rough finish of the tank. It's really fascinating to talk to him, because he has a very personal approach to customization; I met Frank a couple of times, the first time right here in Verona, I think.There is a great sensitivity in his bikes, as I said before, each part has a story, an idea, an inspiration. It's like if he had written a poem on steel, aluminum, brass, wood and translated it into this work of art on wheels. When I saw the finished bike, I realized he has had a completely different approach from what I imagined. The workings are beautiful everywhere. You see that he spent a long time on every detail. And it is also the first time I saw pieces taken from a car on one of his specials. I think that it sums up the essence of many of the stories told by Alessandra. It has a certain African feeling, I can recognize traits of Tunisian and Moroccan craftsmanship in the brass and steel workings on the bike, which is very nice. "Publicly, we confess our "Artistic" ignorance and insensitivity , but it certainly is a realization that leaves you speechless!
