After its successful debut at the New York International Motorcycle Show in December, the Nmoto Nostalgia project is now entering limited production.

The Nmoto Nostalgia is a one-of-a-kind endeavor to capture the ambition of the legendary BMW R7. With the comfortable suspension and unique steering mechanisms encased in a canonical design inspired by the BMW R7 pre-war prototype, the Nostalgia motorcycle gives enthusiasts a slice of the past without sacrificing performance or rider experience.

The core of the Nostalgia is a modern BMW R nineT, outfitted with 96 handcrafted pieces, including more than 11 premium parts from well-known suppliers.

Constructed primarily of aircraft-grade aluminum, the Nostalgia motorcycles are lighter than a stock R nineT and the original 1934 prototype. Modern technology also provides more power and maneuverability so riders get the best of both worlds–Art Deco design and looks with contemporary performance and reliability.

Nmoto believes that the primary pleasure in motorcycle ownership is in riding, which is why they created the Nmoto Nostalgia. Beyond just being beautiful and wholly distinct, it’s reliable, safe and comfortable enough to ride every single day.

“The response in New York was tremendous,” said Nmoto founder Alexander Niznik. “We had a lot of interest from the public and the media, a lot of positive feedback, and we’re already taking orders, including from famed musician Billy Joel and renowned BMW historian Peter Nettesheim.”

Available in a limited production series, orders are now being taken with a finished base price of $49,500 and an expected wait time of 3 to 6 months. For more details and information, visit nmoto.com.

  1. It’s an interesting look,,,and it comes in some very nice colors….BUT $40-$50,000?? Limited addition or not, I wouldn’t spend that much on any “nostalgic” motorcycle…Under $20,000, MAYBE,,,But the day you drop $50,000 on it,,the very next day, you’ll be lucky to get 50% of that in return/resale.. They probably designed this bike with the “Jay Leno’s” of the world in mind…People with $$$$$$$$$$$$$ to BURN !!!
