BMW R NineT is one of the favorite motorcycles that is often customized by design houses. And this time, Ares Design of Modena, Italy tried to combine typical Italian designs with German practicality to customize BMW R NineT to be retro-style. The custom Retro Scrambler by Ares Design showcases retro style but still prioritizing turn-key reliability and all the latest safety equipment for driving comfort.
The main mechanical change contained in this roadster is the middle rear buffer unit which is converted into a twin rear strut to get a closer period view. The handlebars is replaced with low items that are re-profiled to match the retro style, and the rear swingarm is redesigned to accentuate the retro impression.
Various other profiles have also been adjusted to get a retro style such as replacing the rear light with retro-styled LED units, using a modern headlight speedometer with the onboard computer, and replacing the original swing-arm with a double arm swingarm with double shock absorber.
BMW R NineT is the first motorcycle modified by Ares Design. This Scrambler only will be produced in limited quantities, with initial production of only about 25 units. BMW R NineT Retro Scrambler by Ares Design is an ideal motorcycle for customers who like retro style but still prioritize performance and driving comfort.
