VTR Customs fuses a BMW R nineT with an Aston Martin

The Swedish company VTR Customs, dedicated to customization of motorcycles, presented the new DBR9T, a model inspired by the Aston Martin DBR9 and based on the BMW R nineT.

This gem on two wheels boasts a mechanics that maintains the iconic 1,170cc, air and oil-cooled, four-stroke, twin-cylinder boxer engine, two camshafts and four valves per cylinder, capable of developing a maximum power of 108 horsepower at 7,250 rpm. Its aesthetics show great changes. For example, the headlight is surrounded by a bespoke aluminum shell and the seat is the same leather used in the Aston Martin DBR9 trim.

At the rear, VTR trimmed its structure to give it a much more aggressive and sporty look, in addition to displaying a logo similar to that of the British car manufacturer, as well as the green color inspired by the 1959 Aston Martin, the year in which the English firm entered Formula 1 and in which he won the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the DBR1, having Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori in command.

The redesign of this special edition motorcycle is completed with some exclusive details, such as an Akrapovic exhaust, cafe racer-style LSL handlebars, a MotoGadget speedometer, new 17-inch Kineo wheels, K&N air filter and a suspension signed by Ohlins.
