Diamond Atelier hit the jackpot with their latest entrant in the custom-built motorcycle market. The design is based on the classic 1994 BMWR100R with some radical changes made to the existent design. The airhead custom has been removed to give way to more impressive features like K&N filters, 40mm Dell’Orto carbs, Akrapovic racing exhaust and a top triple clamp with a 0.17 carat diamond in it that automatically translate to a great boost in performance.
