Roland Sands Design BMW Concept

At the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Lake Coma, Italy, BMW unveiled something new that pay tribute to one of the Bavarian motorcycle manufacturers most iconic models, the 1973 R 90 S.

This year the R 90 S, which was the first production motorcycle to feature a front fairing, turns 40. And to help celebrate, BMW got together with ex-motorcycle racer Roland Sands and designed the Concept 90.

The RSD BMW Concept 90 features the famed boxer within a frame surrounded by aluminum bodywork painted in legendary Daytona Orange like the original R 90 S was offered in.

Of course, the bike features nothing but modern technology and styling, from the fuel-injected air-cooled flat-twin boxer to the LED lights to the milled valve covers, engine and exhaust system.

Speaking of the Concept 90, Roland Sands says “Everything just fits together perfectly: the BMW technology, the BMW heritage and our custom parts complement each other beautifully.”
