This is the Optimus Praëm – it’s the best BMW S1000RR special we’ve seen yet. Check this out!


Now THIS is what you can do with a cafe racer/retro racer mindset and a modern superbike. We absolutely love this hunk of metal.


This is the latest bikes from Praëm. Based around a BMW S1000RR the bike looks more like something out of the 1980s endurance race series.




The ‘Optimus Praëm’ has come about from a team-up with BMW Motorrad France. The exhaust is from Competition Werkes, Rotobox has made the wheels, Rizoma supplied things like footrests and bars and the tyres are Pirellis.

Praëm says that the bike is around 20kg lighter than the stock bike. We want one.



If Praëm’s work looks kind of familiar then that could be because the men behind it, Sylvain (a former BMW Motorrad designer) and Florent Berneron are also the brains behind the Holographic Hammer range of custom bikes.
