MBG_BMW R NINET ‘HERA PROJECT’ for Chop and Roll Magazine

The Hera project arose from the collaboration of Italian craftsmen specifically selected by Chop and Roll magazine who had been designated by BMW Motorrad to transform the 2017 RnineT.

South Garage Moto Co. prepared the initial concept and guidelines to identify the Scrambler characteristics the motorcycle would need to have.

Metalbike Garage had previously created the LowRide Magazine’s RnineT aluminium bodywork which was awarded the 2017 Design Award Essenza for frame geometry at Glemseck 101. For the Hera project, Metalbike Garage redeveloped the design of the motorcycle and created the 3D model which enabled the CNC machine to form the wooden mould used for shaping the aluminium bodywork.

The new bodywork fits the frame and the BMW side brackets without needing any structural modifications.

The aluminum bodywork was hand beaten into shape by the skilled craftsman at Metalbike Garage, ready for the finishing stage. South Garage oversaw the work on the saddle, the exhaust system in titanium with steel terminals, the bodywork’s lucidity and finishing graphics, the cap of the fuel tank, and the headlight as well as the mounting of specific parts supplied by leading constructors.
