™ American Dynotune nitrous system – not quite how the good citizens of Irbit (or BMW for that matter) had originally envisioned it being powered! The ultralight 23 inch rake frame, swingarm and wheels (FCM 21 inchers front and rear with 80 and 120 Avons respectively) are handmade in titanium and aluminum and bolted together – there is no welding, but there are over 220 handmade titanium nuts and bolts on this bike! The fairing is handmade in aluminum; the gas tank is CNC-machined aluminum; there is no paint on ‘Bonny, just metal finish and anodizing. The brakes are British, from the bicycle industry, ‘Hope’ 6Ti rear and 6Ti dual on the front, with FCM made stainless steel rotors; the rear suspension is also from the bicycle industry – Cane Creek double barrel shocks with modified titanium springs. The front end is from a 2005 Kawasaki ZX-636 (of course it is!), and the BMW ‘Angle’ gearbox is off a K1220R that wasn’t using it at the time, with an Ultima 6-speed right side belt drive. Sponsored by ‘ECCO’, the UK based footwear and accessories brand, ‘Bonny’ won the 2015 Moscow Custom and Tuning Show (an AMD World Championship Affiliate event) and has raced at Bonneville.
