This custom BMW R100 RS is the first (and we suspect not the last) motorcycle to come from Côte d’Azur-based Ortolani Customs, a business best known until now for its classic car restorations. The elegant bike’s frame has been reengineered to accommodate a more minimal mono-shock rear suspension system. Coupled with the hand-fabricated stainless-steel exhaust and the pert aluminium tail section, the overall design is wonderfully well packaged, allowing you to focus more on details such as the intricate pin-striping on the vintage fuel tank, the French yellow-tinted headlight, or the tasteful metal BMW badge studded into the deep oxblood leather saddle. With spring fast approaching, we can’t think of a better land-based tender for your super yacht moored on the Riviera.
