Makes sense, right? The R nineT was already known to be the German brand's most customizable model, and using its mechanicals meant Nmoto didn't need to design a bike from scratch, but rather draw and expand on existing heritage. At its core, the Nostalgia Project is a BMW R nineT dressed up as an R7 the with help of 96 handcrafted components, including 74 parts built by Nmoto fabricators (like the 12-liter gas tank, throttle system, fenders mounts, custom stainless steel mufflers, etc.) in-house. But that also meant all the electrics had to be redesigned; Nmoto says it's the first to successfully integrate the BMW R nineT system with nonstandard, aftermarket control panels in the handlebar. The guys at Nmoto explain that Nostalgia isn't a one-off, but a production motorcycle that incorporates traditional metal-shaping techniques to re-create that one-of-a-kind vintage aesthetic. In the end, by mixing modern materials and components with some old-school manufacturing methods, Nmoto was able to create a lighter and more powerful final product.
