The R nineT RS combines a fairing and other design elements from the original R 100 RS with a modern BMW R nineT engine and chassis. Muth notes that the “Mono plus seat and tailsection required a new execution, guided by the original but revised for the R nineT’s proportions. Informed eyes will note blue-anodized front-brake calipers, just like those on the original bike. Muth calls it an RS in mind and soul: Handwerk trifft Kreativität wie auch Ikone trifft zeitgemäßes Engineering, craftsmanship meets creativity; an icon meets modern engineering. He also notes that, as with the original, the bike is a collaborative social product of enthusiasts working together, designed without CAD and built without robots.
