Diamond Atelier and K1X.

This is what happens when a custom motorcycle maker and a basketball brand team up: They create a custom R nineT that is causing a stir in the café racer scene. Custom bike creator Diamond Atelier and basketball label K1X both originate from Munich, so it was clear from the beginning that a BMW model would serve as the starting point for the DA#4.

They chose the brand-new R nineT, which Diamond Atelier customised to actualise K1X's vision for an aggressive, low-slung bike that would hint at the label's upcoming fall/winter collection. The logos are made of silver and have been accessorised with a real diamond in the Diamond Atelier style. Further highlights include an air inlet running through the handcrafted fuel tank and reworked high-end electronics. CNC-machined one-off pieces like the top triple clamp or alternator cover are branded with the iconic K1X leaf complete this masterpiece.

The brand-new DA#4 will be showcased at Glemseck 101, where it will be raced on the 1/8 mile Essenza Sprint.
