The simplicity concept of R 5 Hommage was revealed

BMW Motorrad is present in a luxury car exhibition named Concorso d'Elegance Villa d'Este on Lake Como, Italy with the figure of a classic bobber style motorcycle, BMW R 5 Hommage.

Its construction looks simple with the reference of 1930s BMW R 5 racing style bike that uses 500 cc engine to mark the company's 80th anniversary. But arguably, one of the most exciting aspects of R 5 is simplicity in both form and function. This simplicity has greatly influenced R 5 Hommage.

Head of Design BMW Motorrad, Edgar Heinrich, said, "To this day, R 5 remains one of the most exciting motorcycles in the BMW's history in my view."

Ola Stenegard, Head of Vehicle Design and Creative Director BMW Motorrad Heritage said, "In my opinion, interesting beauty and unique lies in its simplicity. In today's world is very simple to remain complicated, but it is very complicated to keep it simple. And the BMW R 5 captures the essence of a motorcycle."

The engine used by R 5 Hommage has an interesting story of its own as it is really used in the race and suffered damage. Its 500 cc boxer engine supplied by Sebastian Gutsch, a motorcycle enthusiasts who could touch the speed of 135 km/h. This was coupled with a supercharged device that would take it as the incarnation of racing motorbike in the present era.
While Ronny and Benny Noren of the Noren Borthers workshop donated many custom devices of the body parts. The contemporary design also carry a distinctive pure handmade character of R 5 into the modern era that is truly unique.
