Creative director Carby Tuckwell says they wanted to make it “an everyday motorcycle”.
“The bike’s hand-fabricated alloy tank is a nod to the touring tanks available for early airheads with increased fuel load and a top box that now houses the ignition and fuel filler. The name of the bike – The Heinrich Maneuver, hints at this influence,” he says.
“The alloy body work was lovingly hand crafted in Sydney and the seat has been skinned in kangaroo suede. Another sweet touch are the custom tank badges, that were created by melting down all the removed alloy parts and sand casting bespoke items.
“After tuning the intake and fabricating a custom pipe set up we managed to massage 110 horses at the rear wheel, a healthy increase of about 6hp over the already ample power of the stock bike to ensure the bike is not only visually engaging. It’s equipped with a surfeit of torque and added audio pleasure,” Carby says.
The Heinrich Maneuver will be displayed at events and in BMW Motorrad dealerships across Australia.
