The apparel brand has lent its trendy retro style to the BMW R nineT Brooklyn Scrambler. Gant Rugger even created a new parka to match this limited edition motorcycle, which will go on sale from June 2, 2014 for €18,500 (around $25,600).

Produced in a limited edition of just six hand-assembled motorcycles, the BMW R nineT Brooklyn Scrambler has a cushioned, stitched leather seat in the exclusive color Denim Grey. Brass-colored thermal wrapping around a section of the tailpipe further adds to the motorcycle's retro feel. The motorcycle has been outfitted with new tires for an even tougher look, and the headlight is now protected by a black wire cover.

This version of the BMW R nineT also stands out for its LED turn signals, rear-view mirrors in machined and anodized aluminum and a brand new hubcap.

Relaunched in 2010 by designer Christopher Bastin, Gant Rugger is the division of sportswear brand Gant that caters to younger, more trend-conscious consumers. The brand is particularly known for its vintage-inspired collections, so it is fitting that the brand has offered its take on the model commemorating the 90th anniversary of BMW's motorcycle division.
