Ferocious look of K-Speed Custom's R nineT Shadow Boxer

More recently we lost one of the most renowned Heavyweight Champions of the World. He called himself "The Greatest." The whole world knew him as "The Champ." Muhammad Ali’s technique and speed set him apart from all other fighters.

So what to do Muhammad Ali with the motorcycle world. Directly it is nothing to do, but the name of a custom motorcycle gave a little reminiscent of one of the exercise technique terms in the world of boxing, and also reminds us of the figure of legend.

K-Speed ​​Customs which is one of the Bangkok-based renowned home modifications has managed to create a very impressive motorcycle called 'Shadow Boxer,' is a custom motorcycle came of a crossbreeding between the classic style of café racer with streetfighter and built on the BMW R nineT.

The company owner named Eak mentioning this muscular R nineT the Shadow Boxer moniker, as a fitting tribute to the late and great Muhammad Ali. It's powerfull looking the boxer engine that wears its name well.

Then what interested him to build R nineT? Eak said that he always wanted to work on a motorcycle with a unique platform and one of them is the BMW R nineT.

Eak got his powder coating list together and sent the cylinder heads, swing arm and triple tree out for treatment, before turning his attention to the rest of the bike. Eak decided to black out the front forks, swap out the original bars with CNC clip on units, and fab up some new side, custom made side panels.

The tank has been left unmodified, save for an awesome matte black paint job. Whilst waiting for the powder coated parts to come back, Eak got to work building a new rear subframe, to give the R nineT that awesome and aggressive riding position.

With the rear subframe in place, Eak added a custom saddle before turning his attention to the finishing touches. Firstly, the stock instrument cluster was scrapped in favor of Motogadget units; the stock headlamps were upgraded to LED lights, as were the tail lights and turn signals. The exhaust system was refined, and of course, the R nineT now wears Pirelli rubbers.
Up front, you’ll notice the awesome, handmade aluminum fairing. It’s a beautiful piece that took by Eak no less than three attempts to get right. And we’re glad he put the effort it in, because it really ties the whole build together, and gives the R nineT that ferocious streetfighter vibe.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of two-wheeled monster and stay alive with the true safety riding. God will forgive Your sins.... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | PIPEBURN | GEARHEADS]
