When BMW unveils a one-off custom motorbike -- a supercharged offering no less -- the excitement is understandably palpable among motorbike enthusiasts in the know. This particular motorbike is aptly named the R5 Hommage as it is designed to pay tribute to the R5, a motorbike that completely reinvented the sports bike segment when it was introduced all the way back in 1936.

This wonderful custom motorbike is designed to feature the aesthetic and character components that made the R5 such a wildly popular motorbike, but with the kind of modern technology that BMW has always made sure to embrace in its motorbikes.

This custom motorbike features improved suspension and brakes and is equipped with a supercharger, increasing the power factor and making this motorbike one that's worthy of borrowing the name of the R5 motorbike.
