The work of designer Nicolas Petit is one of those gems in motorcycling that really gets our imagination here at A&R working at high-speed. It probably has something to with Petit’s simple, practical, but stunning designs that grab our fancy, and make us think “yeah, I could see one of those in my garage” — such is the case with the BMW R12 concept.

A clean and modern café racer design, Nicolas Petit’s BMW R12, which is based off the BMW HP2, is something we’d like to have in our stable for when the journey, not the destination, is the order of the day. Enjoy his sketches and renders after the jump, and to save you the trouble when you go scavenging for boxer-twins, here’s a link to craigslist.

    The half-faired one looks very close to a Ducati Sport 1000S.

    I love his work ! especially the first bike with the brown seat ! Hope BMW will be interested by the work of Nicolas Petit.

  7. Nicolas Petit bothered his head about a BMW cafe racer design and came to a quite interesting conclusion. http://t.co/VwhQG265
