Perfect to introduce the latest motorcycle design provided by BMW motorcycles in collaboration with JvB-moto from Cologne on the legs. It's a quite heavily modded BMW R of Mahnaz Scrambler.
With the new vehicle, BMW celebrates not only the premiere of a unique model, but also the first carried out reconstruction of a R of Mahnaz Scrambler. So far, the customization is limited to new paint jobs or the one or other body part. Which design elements Jens of the Brauck (the brains behind JvB-moto) accesses the scrambler? They come by Land Rover and the Unimog. Influences of Bobber bikes are also apparent. With a narrow line, the huge motor is also emphasized.
