Motorcycle: BMW Custom RnineT
Customizer: Lowride Magazine/Radikal Chopper
Rider: Alberto Vergani
BMW Motorrad is heading into the race with a BMW RnineT developed by the motorcycle magazine “Lowride” and built by Italian customizer Radikal Chopper. Thanks to the slim MetalBike aluminum monocoque construction and the minimalist front, the classic 1200cc bike is reminiscent of a sinewy Scrambler. Despite the reduced design, there is enough space for all of the electronic components and the battery underneath the bodywork. Elegant accessories by Rizoma and Motogadget give this unique creation a prominent appearance with an iconic Italian style.
Alberto Vergani will be taking a seat in the RnineT’s saddle. The Italian has plenty of racing experience, having competed in the Superbike and Supersport class, as well as in the KTM Superduke and Triumph Thruxton-Trophy. So he obviously knows that the gas pedal is located on the right-hand side.
