Are you ready to burn some rubber, retro motorbeast lovers? If your answer is Yes, buckle up and get ready to rock the highway on the new BMW R1100GS Desert Scrambler motorbike recently announced by the Madrid-based motorcycle customizer Café Racer Dreams (CRD), world-famous for their retro-looking machines. So, what’s so special about this road burner? Scroll down to find out.
Essentially, CRD team took the casual 1998 BMW R1100GS, redesigned and revamped it thoroughly, threw in a hefty portion of custom-built components and neat gear upgrades, and what came out after over a month of hard work is a brand new biking masterpiece. Building from the classic 1998 Beemer platform, CRD equipped their new cycle with a set of Italian upside-down forks and twin Brembo disc brakes, Efraon’s custom triple trees, customized sub-frame, GR exhaust, GT 1000 front end with an updated suspension and braking system, Motogadget gauge and switches, K&N filters, Aprilia RSV Mille master cylinder, 7-inch Ducati S2R headlight, continental tires, Supertrapp silencers, TKC 80 knobbies and GT rear shocks with Pirelli Sport Demon rubber. Apart from that, the rest of the bike preserves pretty much everything else from the original 1998 version: taillight, fenders, turn signals, plate holder, bars and grips are the standard CRD edition, topped by a custom-crafted seat and handsome matte black “Smoke Silver TT” paintwork supplemented with a dash of patina for unmatched visual sophistication.
So, all that remains to be seen is how this highway killer babe performs in action – and we have our hopes as high as can be from a beast-bike that can reportedly conquer sand, snow, mud and dirt as easily as you can say ‘Go’. To get a taste of the aggressive CRD R1100GS Desert Scrambler, you should check out the producer’s website and choose from a range of available customization options, place your order and look forward to the first expected shipping dates. The off-road rides on your Desert devil machine will probably prove to be the closest to the modern experience of ‘the stuff that dreams are made on’ – and most of it will certainly go down in the road pirate adventures you’ll tell your grandsons some day. watch video below
