This BMW R nineT café racer is a collaboration between Arjan van den Boom, the mind behind Ironwood Motorcycles, and Timothy Somers from Powerbrick, forming CNCPT Moto.
Their synergy shines in this uncompromising build.
They overhauled the front forks with CeraCarbon carbon fiber uppers and a Matris cartridge kit, making them fully adjustable. The TFX Suspension rear shock follows suit.
While retaining the 9T’s Brembo brakes, they swapped the laced rims for striking Rotobox Bullet carbon fiber wheels wrapped in Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tires.
To preserve the 9T’s essence, the original fuel tank stayed, complemented by a sleeker air intake from Pier City Cycles in place of the stock chunky one.
The boxer’s subframe and seat brackets were replaced with a stubby 3D-printed subframe housing a slim LED taillight crafted by Silver Machine.
Upgrades include a Powerbrick headlight nacelle, custom yokes, and clip-ons machined by Tim. The bars boast leather-wrapped grips, Motogadget push buttons, and Beringer master cylinders for the brake and hydraulic clutch. A Motogadget digital dash handles speedo duties.
Under the hood, the air- and oil-cooled boxer motor remains stock internally, with CNCPT installing DNA pod filters in place of the air box. The stainless steel exhaust system, custom-designed by CNCPT and manufactured by MAD Exhausts, gives a nod to retro sportbike aesthetics.
The livery boasts a sleek black and silver design, highlighted by a silver finish on the front half of the frame and black accents. Royal Jack handled the paintwork, while Brother Coating managed the powder coating and anodizing.
