NMoto, an exclusive motorcycle manufacturer based in Miami, Florida, has announced its new model – the Golden Age. The Golden Age channels the 1936 Henderson Courtney prototype while using a new BMW C400X as a base, combining the latest technology and speed with retro styling.
If there’s one thing NMoto has always been known for, it’s for creating classic body kits with modern capabilities. This time, they’ve taken it a step further by transforming a BMW C400X into a full 1930s Henderson Streamline KJ. While its new hull makes it look like a snapshot of the past, its capabilities are definitely contemporary. NMoto claims it uses all of the modern convenience, technology and reliability built into the C400X.
The Rationalizer houses an art deco masterpiece kit made up of nine pieces of carbon fiber. Developed and produced in collaboration with Ziller Motorcycles, the famous BMW grille rolls prominently from the grip to the floor and is also paired with grilles in the lower part of the body. The side moldings curve and bulge seamlessly as if full of character. In addition, new turn signal housings, a new full LED headlight, rear light and under-seat storage for the driver and passenger complete the design.
This sleek scooter is powered by a 2020 BMW 350cc engine producing around 35 hp to reach top speed of over 90 mph (145 km / h). The mid-size scooter totals a weight of 193 kg.
Coupled with a low center of gravity, the Golden Age is designed to be both powerful and agile on city streets, not to mention extremely practical and irresistibly beautiful. Despite changing part of the handlebar design to accommodate the new parts, it will continue to have the multifunction display and on-board computer it had without losing any of its functionality.
Additionally, it is available in four different colors: black with a brown saddle, black and red with a black saddle, cream and red with a brown saddle, or aquamarine and cream with a brown saddle; all with chrome details and diamond-shaped stitching on the saddle.
Limited to just 100 units worldwide, the Golden Age can be ordered from the company’s official website, starting at $ 12,490.
