Meet the BMW R nine T, a canvas of infinite possibilities and the undisputed champion of customization in the world of motorcycles. Ognjen Docic, a visionary with a wrench, has transformed this versatile classic into an unrecognizable beast of the tarmac – presenting the Rat Race, a cafe racer that doesn’t just break the mold, it shatters it. This isn’t a ride for the faint-hearted; it’s skeletal yet robust, an exploration of design that pushes boundaries, including the audacious use of transparent plastic in its fairing. In the world of post-apocalyptic aesthetics, the Rat Race stands alone, echoing the lone wolf ethos Hollywood has ingrained in our minds!
Take a closer look, and you’ll find that the Rat Race isn’t just about looks – it’s a structural remix. Certain fairing components are stripped away for the sake of purity, while others, like the fuel tank, get a boost in strength, perhaps as a deterrent to would-be thieves. The chassis itself receives a secondary frame, reinforcing it for those who crave the thrill of aggressive riding.
Ognjen Docic, the mastermind behind this metamorphosis, describes his creation as a dream vision that seamlessly melds vintage aesthetics with futuristic elements. “Rat Race” transcends eras, capturing the timeless struggle we all face in the race of life. The iconic BMW R9T maintains its original structure, with subtle tweaks that preserve its heritage while projecting into the future.
Curious about specs? Docic grins and says, “Specifications of the motorcycle are unknown! Crafted within the confines of my mind, it borrows foundational elements from the R9T model. My imagination took residence in an underground motorcycle tuning garage in the outskirts of Belgrade.”
One can’t help but be intrigued by the transparent materials that grace the Rat Race’s body design. A transparent skull-like panel surrounds the headlight, giving the bike an otherworldly aura. This transparent theme extends to the base and end, where clever edge-lighting creates a one-of-a-kind taillight. Transparent plastic becomes an integral part of the structure, adding character without increasing bulk.
The result? A bike that’s practically a shape-shifting enigma, its own character emerging from the ashes of transformation. It appears battle-worn, ready for more challenges, with chunky tires that scream versatility – the Rat Race is built to conquer any terrain, no questions asked. And with no rear-view mirrors in sight, it’s clear that this ride is destined for a forward trajectory, leaving the past in its dust. Welcome to the Rat Race, where the only direction is ahead!
