BMW K75 Adventure Touring Bike

This stunning Adventure Touring Bike was built by the Spoken Moto workshop for the Handbuilt Show in collaboration with craft luggage maker Pack Animal out of Seattle. Based on a 1990 BMW K75RT, the long-range tourer was heavily influenced by the Motorrad R Nine T Paris-Dakar concept bike. In fact, the nose and front fender are R Nine T Urban GS bits and the paint scheme is very similar to the Paris-Dakar bike. The racks, radiator shield, subframe, rear fender, seat pan, instrument mounts and skid plates are all hand built. It is powered by a 740cc, liquid-cooled straight three that offers 68-75 hp and a top speed in excess of 130 mph. The end result is a gorgeous and capable adventure touring bike built on a reliable platform with power and plenty of room for racks and bags.
