BMW R nineT is one of the newest motorcycles built by the German manufacturer and the guys from Urban Motor are the first tuners who had the occasion to modify it.

Their creation is called the Track Grinder and shows what potential for customization has the new BMW R nineT.

Like the stock model the Track Grinder is powered by the air- and oil-cooled version of BMW’s 1170cc boxer engine which delivers a claimed 110 horsepower and 88 pound-feet of torque. The unit didn’t receive any modifications but almost everything else has been completely modified.

One of the most obvious upgrades is the new design of the fuel tank which is complemented by the fresh alloy tail and the new custom seat wrapped in black leather.

The Track Grinder has also received a new Mottogadget Motoscope Pro digital LED dash which looks far better than the stock unit.

Up front you get a circular number holder with a small 50 headlight “hidden” underneath it. Other modifications include a Supertrapp exhaust system, Tarozzi pegs and blacked-out wheels paired with Golden Tyre dual-sport rubbers.

Honda launched the cheapest motorcycle in its lineup. The new model is called the CG100 and has a price tag of only $ 670 (100,000 Nigerian naira), but unfortunately it is available only on the Nigerian market.

Needles to say, the bike is far from being impressive, as it comes as basic as it can be. But its modest character makes it a great choice for countries like Nigeria where versatile, cheap and efficient motorcycles are highly appreciated for their practicality.
The 2014 Honda CG100 can be easily recognized by its old school style, the square headlight, thin wheels and the one piece seat. The motorcycle’s ride is kept in check by a pretty rudimentary fork and dual rear shocks. You also get full drum brakes and a 110 cc engine.

Honda plans to build 40,000 units each year.

“She was an accident waiting to happen. 600 pounds of American coke fired iron, riding on weather-checked English rubber. Cracking femurs or rupturing internal organs were her specialties, and she had done so on more than one occasion. The Iron Lung, a 1991 Harley Sportster roadracer, was a vision of what never was, in response to a question that was never asked.” – This is how Icon presents its new creation, the epic Iron Lung.

This new mechanical beast was born from Icon’s desire to create a truly special motorcycle that has the look of the legendary Harley-Davidson endurance and circuit racers from the 1970s, but is mixed with modern technologies and contemporary lines.

Like you’ve probably guessed, the Iron lung is based on a standard 1991 Harley Davidson Sportster. Luckily, Icon doesn’t play when it comes to modifying motorcycles, so they’ve started their work by boosting the engine’s power. Therefore, the Sportster’s 883cc unit was upgraded using a big bore kit up to no less than 1200cc. The increased capacity was combined with a Supertrapp exhaust system so the end result should be fairly impressive.

For enhanced performances, the Iron Lung’s front end had to receive some attention to. So, apart from the custom front fairing built in house, the guys from Icon have also decided to make the entire front lower and wider. They’ve also added a new sub frame, progressive 970 shocks, fresh forks (borrowed from a Harley Davidson Wide Glide) and custom triple clamps.

If you like those tasty wheels you should know that they come from a V-Rrod, while the custom seat was created by New Church Moto and the paint job is signed by the Garage 31 team.

All in one, the bike’s design and specs are fairly catchy and if you want to see it in action hit the jump for the official video released by Icon.
