More BMW R nineT Variations, We Can't Get Enough of Them

Here are five more variations of the BMW R nineT from Oberdan Bezzi. It looks like we just can't get enough of this machine, in pretty much any form it may arrive.

Some say that an R nineT-based scrambler is not exactly a good, lucrative idea when it comes to fighting the dirt, and there might be a lot of truth in this.

The R nineT is nowhere near comparable to a lightweight dirt bike, yet people who have shod it with knobbies say that its power and confidence-inspiring torque deployment make taking this bike off the road quite fun.

Anyway, BMW's R nineT is probably the model closest to a theoretical bullseye. The bike was built with the old "airhead" boxer engine of the R1200GS, and became an instant hit among both riders and customizers.

And we are talking about the fact that BMW designed this model with the exact purpose of being a bike that's both easy and fun to customize, and the result is impeccable: the R nineT is quickly becoming one of the all-time favorites for such jobs.Oberdan Bezzi offers two new plausible designs in four trims and five colors, with four of these bikes ready to hit the muddy trails, and one built for asphalt aggression
Maybe because it's spring, the Green Countryman scrambler appealed to us the most. The bike looks somehow light and happy, and picturing it covered in dirt has something satisfying about it. The rear fender could be extended a bit more, like in the case of the tricolor version, thus preventing all the muck from being thrown from the wheel on the rider.

It's nice to see Oberdan Bezzi repositioning the exhaust pipes and silencers, because, honestly, we hate the original ones. The collectors going upwards are maybe a tad more scrambler-ish in a traditional way, but the other version isn't bad at all, either.

As for the street-ready roadster, the R nineT retains the high dual pipes and cans, and it received a '70s front cowl, rounded at the front and extending on the sides towards the tank, accompanied by a bubble behind which riders can, at least, try to hind.

Funny thing, such mods could be indeed offered as bolt-on kits making the R nineT look amazing while being still easy to reverse to the factory trim.
