To accompany the arrival of the BMW R18 First Edition in dealerships, Bleu de Chauffe and BMW Motorrad France are launching a “Heritage” capsule collection with 5 exclusive bags.
The bags in this collection (the ‘Bivouac’ Kit bag and the ‘Éclair R18’ Mailman bag) have been designed for bikers – wherever they go, whatever the weather. The materials have been carefully selected for their strength and waterproofing. For example, flaps cover the stitching to keep the rainwater out, and the ‘Mailman’ bag has a flap which covers the edges and protects the bag’s contents.
The full leather ‘SupaKitch’ kit bag has been created in collaboration with the eponymous Biarritz-based visual artist.
SupaKitch has developed their concept through working with the elements. This is a perfect fit with the BMW R18 cruising mindset: taking pleasure in the unique sensory experience that you get from riding a motorbike. This bag uses their famous “Waves at sunset” motif which has already featured in the scenography for the launch of the BMW R18 in France.
This 100% vegetable tanned leather version has been specifically developed to be water and fade resistant, and is made from 2mm-thick leather, hand-polished for a definitively unique style.It can be carried across the chest with the strap or by the leather handles.
Made in France.
Fixings to attach the bag to a motorbike luggage rack or saddle are not provided. The customer is free to choose their own secure fixings.
