VTR Customs buttoned up a 2017 BMW R 1200 R. The result is a motorcycle like from another planet. Including make-up mirror. The machine changes hands for 55,000 Swiss francs.

M.it Eddie 21 made VTR second place in the 2017 Essenza Sprint on the Solitude racetrack in the BMW Boxer class. With this, she not only achieved the goal of being among the 16 Essenza nominees, but was also able to keep up with her predecessor. The VTR Customs Goodwood 12 also took second place in the Essenza Sprint in 2016. And even if VTR based its target on the 2016 bike, it was important for the builders to create a completely new bike, including a completely new design. And out came "Eddie".

Eddie Lawson’s bib number

But why this name? The naming leads back to the past: "We had all rebuilt our street Japanese in the 80s based on the model of Eddie Lawson’s superbike Kawa Z1000 – so it had to be called Eddie 21 (21 was his starting number).", so the customizers.

The rev counter and speedometer are on Eddie’s tank.

Eddie 21 is based on a BMW R 1200 R, but should also have the look of the Z 1000. Just a lot more filigree than the Japanese. The BMW has tall superbike handlebars, a big start number – like Eddie back then, and various hand-made parts made of aluminum. This includes the tank and the airbox as well as the rear and the eye-catching start number plate.

In addition, the BMW is equipped with a titanium manifold and a silencer from UniT. The pilot sits on a special saddle from Yves Knobel, Feuder contributed the matt copper-olive paint, the wheels come from Kineo, with the rim color being specially made for Eddie.

Make-up mirror on board

For VTR, Eddie 21 is the second R 1200 R in the Essenza class. It was also driven by Amelie Mooseder, which is clearly noted on the tank. As a lucky charm, the pilot puts on lipstick before a sprint – hence the make-up mirror "Eddie".

The Essenza Sprint takes place as part of various events, for example during Glemseck 101 near Stuttgart. Both large manufacturers and private screwdrivers compete against each other to find out who sprints the fastest on the eighth mile.
