"The goal was to create a fast and efficient bike, but also, inspired by all the things that touch us."-PRAËM
BMW and PRAËM (a French company that makes custom motorcycles) have joined forces to create a beautiful custom BMW S 1000 RR that boasts both power and style.
French brothers Sylvain and Florent Berneron who own and operate PRAËM are largely responsible for the beautiful design, which is meant to show a bigger range of what one can do in custom, as well as to demonstrate that modifying sport bikes is a lot more technical than one may be led to believe. A modification of this sort needs to be very precise and accurate in order for it to all work out correctly, however that is just what was accomplished here.
The custom BMW S 1000 RR features a front fairing that is based on a Suzuki endurance bike and has one light on the right side. Among the changes that have taken place, the fuel tank has been reconfigured in aluminum and the wheels have been replaced with lighter carbon wheels-in order to reduce inertia and gyroscopic effect to aid steering by speeding up.
All in all, this is one custom that is truly a work of art...
