this custom-made BMW R9T by zillers garage is a mad max dream

moscow-based zillers garage has unveiled a steampunk, mad max-like custom-made BMW R9T motorrad. the one-off motorcycle takes BMW’s new R18 cruiser and redesigns the outer body without touching the internal build. this redesign features a shell made entirely from fabricated aluminum parts.

for the BMW R9T, zillers garage has enclosed its elements inside the new aluminum body. from the headlight to the tail-light, everything flows through the metal-finished mass that results in a somewhat post-apocalyptic aesthetic. the intimidating HID lamp has been placed at the front while a taillight has been mounted on a sliding rear that also serves as the opening access to the bike’s electric controls. the dashboard has been integrated into the fuel tank in a seamless but visible way. overall, the new robust body gives the BMW R9T bike volume and a strong presence. for those interested, the bike is only made to order.

  • It is more of a cyberpunk motorcycle and not mad max or steampunk. Definitely looks beautiful.

    Igotnojob
  • Lots of horribly impractical design elements make this suitable only as a piece of foyer sculpture.

    Bill M Chambers
  • They are using pneumatic fork and rear suspension that’s why the bike is very low when parked ; it’s only for the look.

  • The headlight appears to be millimeters from the front fender. How much suspension travel is this capable of; what happens in a corner, let alone traversing a speed bump?

    RinSF
  • I’d buy one in a heartbeat but guess price will be north of e20,000, might want to give it 5 inches of ground clearance or it’s going to crush sleeping policemen!

    Rick Ryder
  • Beautiful steampunkish rocket; def not mad max

    strix
  • Wow! That is brilliant!

  • Very nice!
    I am wondering tho- the down side pannels are almost touching the floor… how come they don’t hit against sidewalks?
