BMW Motorrad USA

As a BMW motorcycle enthusiast and consumer there were some things that I really wanted BMW Motorrad to put into production in some capacity, ether as special editions or as factory custom options. After multiple requests to BMW Motorrad USA to pay homage to their history and style of their beautifully designed and painted motorcycles of years past while incorporating modern technology, BMW Motorrad finally offered the global marketplace a less conservative “Dark” and “Triple Black” aesthetic options for more unique customizations of their R 1200 C and GS motorcycle models. Regarding the 2009 BMW Lo Rider Concept, in 2006 I initiated the idea of a BMW German version of the stunning U.S. designed and made Confederate Hellcat.

Ironically, 2011 was BMW Motorrad’s most successful selling year in it’s history despite it being a down global economy; perhaps it was due to the introduction of the black modern/retro finishes?
