BMW has unveiled a concept bike to celebrate 90 years of two-wheeled history and the 40th birthday of its iconic R 90 S machine.

The BMW Concept Ninety, revealed at the weekend as part of the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este 2013, was built in partnership with custom bike company Roland Sands Design.

Back in 1973 when BMW unveiled its flagship model in the ''Stroke Six'' range to the global public, the R 90 S boasted a top speed of just over 200kmh, making it was one of the fastest production bikes of its day

The BMW Concept Ninety aims to resurrect the spirit of the R 90 S and its basic proportions take their cue from the forebear through the fairing, tank, seat and tail. The bodywork is hand crafted from aluminium and the rich orange shade is also a nod to the legendary Daytona Orange paintwork of the BMW R 90 S.
