Birthday gems: Ruby special editions celebrate 90 years of BMW motorbikes

BMW Motorrad might currently be celebrating its 90th anniversary to the fullest extent, but the festivities aren’t only taking place in-house. French motorcycle atelier Ruby has produced a range of themed helmets using famous colours from the history of BMW’s motorcycle division…

The ‘Munich 90’ collection sees Ruby’s three traditional helmet designs offered in five colour schemes – including the iconic red and blue stripes worn by both two- and four-wheeled Bavarian racing machines over the years. Produced in limited numbers (though a precise figure has not yet been released), each will be individually numbered. Should you be lured by a lid with a legacy, and build-quality similar to that of your steed, you’ll be relieved of between €700 and €1,080.
