NMoto’s Golden Age pairs latest technology and speed with retro style

NMoto, an exclusive motorcycle manufacturer based in Miami, Florida, has announced its newest model – the Golden Age. The Golden Age channels the 1936 Henderson Courtney Prototype while using a new BMW C400X as its basis, pairing the latest technology and speed with retro style.

If there is one thing NMoto has always been known for, it is for creating classic body kits with modern capabilities. This time they have gone one step further by transforming a BMW C400X into a full 1930s Henderson Streamline KJ. Although its new shell makes it seem like a snapshot of the past, its capabilities are definitely contemporary. NMoto says it employs all the modern convenience, technology, and reliability built into the C400X.

The streamliner hosts an art deco masterpiece kit made from nine pieces of carbon fiber. Developed and produced in collaboration with Ziller Motorcycles, the famed BMW kidney grille rolls prominently from handle to ground and is also paired with grilles in the lower part of the body. The side moldings seamlessly curve and bulge as if full of character. In addition, the new turn signal housings, a new full-LED Headlight, taillight, and underseat storage space for the driver and passenger complete the design.

This sleek scooter is powered by a 2020 BMW 350cc engine producing approximately 35 hp to reach the top speed over 90 mph (145 km/h). The mid-size scooter totals a weight of 193 kg.

Coupled with a low center of gravity, the Golden Age is designed to be both powerful and nimble on city streets, not to mention supremely practical and rakishly handsome. Despite modifying part of the design of the handlebar to fit the new parts, it will continue to have the multifunction screen and the onboard computer that it had without losing any of its features.

In addition, it is available in four different colors: black with a brown saddle, black and red with a black saddle, cream and red with a brown saddle, or aquamarine green and cream with a brown saddle; all with chrome details and diamond-shaped stitching on the saddle.

Limited to just 100 units worldwide, the Golden Age can be ordered from the company’s official website, starting at $12,490.
