Japanese customisers show us four ways to ruin a BMW R nineT

The four hideously ugly, tacky, crappy machines you see here are called Cyclone, Highway Fighter, Clubman Racer and Boxer. Which one is which? We couldn't care less, really

Some things are just not right. Things like the four customised botched BMW R nineTs that you see here. A bunch of Japanese customisers have taken the R nineT - a handsome, very good looking motorcycle in stock form - and, each in their own special way, rubbished the bike completely. The four bikes were shown during the BMW Motorrad Days Japan, held at the Hakuba47 Mountain Sports Park, at the end of August this year.

The Japanese gentlemen responsible for the four ruined BMW R nineTs that you see here are, Go Takamine (Brat Style), Kaichiroh Kurosu (Cherry’s Company), Shiro Nakajima (46 Works) and Hideya Togashi (HIDE Motorcycle), all of whom had taken on a "challenge" to transform a BMW R nineT into an individual creation of their own design in less than 200 days. So the bikes you see here prove that you can indeed utterly and completely murder a perfectly good BMW R nineT in about 28 weeks.

"I was absolutely bowled over. I had high expectations – after all these are four of the best customisers in the world, and in the end I went down on my knees. What they have succeeded in creating here is just astounding. The ideas and innovations – just incredible and beautiful. The details – amazing," says Ola Stenegard, the man who actually designed the BMW R nineT. We only wonder how much they had to pay him to make him say that!

Want to see more of these bikes? Really?! Alright then, go on, there are many, many more high-res pics after the jump...
