THE ALMOST FORGOTTEN BMW R1150R gets a makeover from the Austrian shop NCT. Plus information of also a bespoke luxury, and also a Ducati Scrambler design contest roadster from New Zealand.The Engrich motorcycle New Zealand has a long tradition of bike building and engineering ingenuity, together with John Britten being the name that many remember. This tradition is well and alive, and this custom-built machine destined for small-run production is the most recent example.
It’s the engine of its kind in the entire world, we’re told, and utilizes a’tungsten equilibrium system’.
The Engrich motorcycle from New Zealand
The job started 20 decades back, and following sustained engine and chassis development, the first complete motorcycle was constructed last year.
The chassis has over 200 anodized and CNC-machined components, uses 6061 aluminum, and is hooked up to Öhlins suspension. The fuel tank is machined from billet aluminum, and 3D nylon is used for tank cowlings, air consumption, the air box body and seat cowl assembly.
No pricing has been announced yet, but the parts are all top shelf–out of PVM forged wheels to Brembo brakes, plus Motec electronics and Rizoma ancillaries.
The market for this kind of machine is obviously limited, but the allure is powerful. It’s going be a very exclusive alternative to bikes like the Triumph Speed Triple or Ducati Monster 1200 if it performs in addition to the specs suggest. [Engrich Motorcycles]
Custom BMW R1150R
Custom BMW R1150R by NCT The R1150R is among these bikes we do not often see in these webpages. A torquey but anonymous all-rounder, it was produced for four years after the turn of the century–and it’s a stone deal on the market. Look attentively, and you may grab a great one in the usa for approximately $2,000.
This custom comes in NCT of Austria, one of the favourite builders. The R1150 is the 47th and it’s called’Rockstar 918′ because it draws inspiration from the Porsche 918 Spyder.

This is not one of NCT’s more intense endeavors, but there continue to be 100 man-hours within this build and it’ll be a spectacular ride. NCT constructed a brand new frame and refinished or powder coasted the majority such as the wheel rims after dismantling the entire bicycle.
The original R1150R was a small visual mess, therefore NCT’s changes have made a big impact. There’s a swingarm-mounted license plate holder, which also has Highsider blinkers that are discreet, and paint on the cowls that flank the tank.

The brand new seat looks plush and comfy, the instrument panel has been ditched in favour of a multi-function speedo, and the bulky stock headlight has been swapped out for a compact LED unit.
A altered Spark exhaust frees up the motor breathing, along with a brand new set of Metzeler Karoo Street tires raises traction on the road. “The customer wanted an all-rounder predicated on a sports car–I think we did a fantastic job.” We do.
Ducati Scrambler notion
Ducati Scrambler concept design It’s pretty common for carmakers to hold layout contests and showcase crazy visions of future automobiles. Motorcycle businesses are not as keen on this strategy, so it’s intriguing to see Ducati make this rendering public.
When Ducati shown the 1100 PRO Scrambler in the ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena in February, Additionally, It encouraged pupils to imagine what another iteration of the Scrambler could look like.

It is the job of student Peter Harkins, who has got the proportions and details just perfect. The layout has just the correct amount of’airiness’ about it, headlight and the framework are unmistakably’Scrambler,’ along with the pudginess that’s crept into the present layout.

By making this Harkins’ sketches general public, is Ducati dropping a hint about the future design direction of the Scrambler? We guess they’re on the right track, if so.
Custom 2005 Triumph Speed Triple
Custom Triumph Speed Triple Together with the lockdowns around the planet, many moto enthusiasts are going to the garage to check their building abilities. This is one of the results we have seen, from gym owner Stan van IJzendoorn. “it is a Speed Triple 1050 from 2005,” he tells us. “Because of the coronavirus I might no longer do the job, so I thought let’s create a great bike!”
The Speed Triple is pretty awesome straight out of the box, but we are enjoying Stan’s tweaks. “I had no expertise in welding,” he acknowledges. “So I purchased a TIG system and just started.”
Stan took his bike apart and remade the rear end of the frame, including a’friend’ seat. He repainted tank and the frame, and installed LED headlights to the forks

The cockpit gets an update with ProTaper bars, Brembo controllers and also a Motogadget Motoscope Pro digital dash. There is a new exhaust system which sits lower and imitates this new subframe’s line.
It’s an impressive and unique first attempt that elevates the Street Triple into custom land without damaging the qualities which make it a terrific street bicycle. Nice job Stan–and it motivates more people to dig the spanners and tubing benders.
