A bike conceived from scratch as a most permissive basis for customizing, the BMW R nineT is already one of the favorites of modding enthusiasts, be they individual riders or pro-grade workshops.

The Wunderlich Tank Stripe Kit is an affordable alternative to manual pinstriping and can be installed even by beginners in modding. Good pinstripes done manually are only made by

With markings for easy and precise attachment, the Stripe Kit is also accompanied by a video that shows how the job must be done by highly-qualified professionals and are not exactly cheap.

The sticker is made from a long-lasting, UV-resistant material that retains its appearance even after prolonged exposure to sunlight and inclement weather.

The kit is €80 ($89), and we only wish that Wunderlich makes a black Tank Stripe Kit to match the bare aluminium R nineT tanks that are also sold optionally for the boxer roadster...And here's a Wunderlich-ed BMW R nineT:
