Praem Builds The Custom BMW S1000RR Bike Of Your Dreams [w/Video]

Two French brothers decided to commemorate the world of motorbikes with a custom-built retro-inspired BMW S1000RR, and the result is nothing short of astonishing.

BMW’s state-of-the art motorcycle, the S1000RR – also known as one of the world’s fastest production bikes, has loads of racing pedigree to its name, as it was specially created to satisfy World Superbike homologation. Capable of delivering 200 HP, the Bavarian powerhouse is an amazing piece of kit, boasting respectable performance figures thanks to a 208 Kg (458 lbs) weight.

But Praem – the company responsible for the bespoke build – wanted to take the concept of “racing heritage” to the next level, suggesting to BMW Motorrad a project based on the motorcycle that revolutionized the world of motorsport. Inspired by endurance Suzuka 8 Hour bikes from the 1970s and 1980s, the custom shop set on creating the ultimate speed bike.

It might sound outrageous, a BMW bike modeled to look as an early 80s Suzuka racer, but the end result is fascinating, with each body element stripped down, re-engineered and re-modeled to achieve a lighter overall weight – a desirable trait in endurance racing where the key word is consistency. There are, in fact, a lot of exquisite details that refer to racing, including the obvious weld steam, but we’ll let you discover more in the video down below.
