kidney-grilles

Luis Bertelli of @luismoto has paid homage to the legendary Tuscan Hill Climb with his latest Beemer build. The changes are more than just cosmetic: We’re told that nearly 50 kilos have been stripped from the original R nineT. But our favorite touch is the front fairing—and the double-kidney style grill found on Beemers since the beginning of time. ’Saline’ is now one of our Bikes Of The Week; Hit the link in our bio to see the rest.

BMW at SEMA 2015

The Speciality Equipment Market Association (SEMA) in Las Vegas is regarded worldwide as the leading trade show for customization and tuning. At this year’s SEMA show from November 3-6 2015, BMW presents a selection of distinctively sports-oriented performance parts to the trade fair audience. Trade fair visitors will see a BMW M Performance modified BMW M4 Coupé as well as the first BMW M Performance Parts for the new BMW M2 Coupé.

What is more, the new “M Performance” inscription in dynamic technical design is to be seen on selected parts. The inscription reflects the increased flair of BMW M Performance as well as underscoring the functional orientation of all BMW M Performance Parts. Evidence of this is also to be seen in the new, extremely sporty parts and components with which BMW has fitted the demonstration vehicle. The new inscription will initially appear on the BMW M Performance Parts for the models BMW M2 Coupé and BMW M4 Coupé, but in future it will be used for the entire BMW M Performance product portfolio.
