BMW Motorrad Japan has unveiled two unique motorcycles that were created as part of their Ignite Straight Six project.

Starting with the engine and frame from the K 1600 GTL, Kenji Nagai of Ken’s Factory and Keiji Kawakita of Hot-Dock Custom-Cycles went about building custom motorcycles that pay tribute to the company's 1649cc six-cylinder engine.

First up, Kawakita’s bike is called the "Juggernaut" and it is described as a "synthesis of Mad Max metal and Jules Verne’s imaginations."  It looks like it came from a dystopian future as it has s militaristic styling and a dark grey paint job.

Moving on, Kenji Nagai’s creation is called ‘Ken’s Factory Special’ and it features a minimalist design that incorporates a number of aluminum components.  The bike also has unique wheels that measure 23-inches at the front and 20-inches at the rear.
