Hookie Co. BMW R NineT Caferacer Custombike Concept "COBRA"

BMW COBRA Caferacer Concept


The idea for the concept of the “COBRA” was born during the development of the Moto-Kit for the BMW R NineT in 2018, in this year we developed a concept of a Moto-Kit that completely changes the look of the BMW R NineT. The new straight subframe gives the R NineT a completely new character and reflects exactly the special style of Hookie Co.

Research & Design

The concept is strongly inspired by the Hookie Caferacer of the Honda CB750, which we released in 2015 and have continued to develop. A modern classic look combined with clean lines and a sporty approach – this is how we define a Hookie Cafe Racer. In addition to the characteristic deep seat and low handlebars, there is of course the significant rear end with minimalist lines.

Clay Modelling and
3D Printed prototypes

We first started with brainstorming and first sketches. The technology of the Scrambler Moto-Kit was the base on which all further designs were developed. After the sketches and the design language were defined, the whole concept was implemented as a clay model. Here we could test all lines and view them from all sides. Often lines and ideas were discarded and redefined. The team around Nico Müller worked on the concept and design for 6 months before the first parts were implemented in CAD and 3D.

Final Concept and

All parts are produced in 3D printing process, which enables us to realize ideas in a more versatile way. We call the manufacturing “ADV” which stands for Hookie Advanced. New possibilities and a versatile use of materials result in a new way of playing for us. The material used for the COBRA is fiberglass reinforced PA12 and has convinced us in quality and weight. In addition, we save at least 90kg of weight and will be able to increase the performance of the whole conversion considerably.
