German motorcycle workshop Hookie Co. has unveiled a new take on the BMW R Nine T, with an updated model named the “Falcon.” As the name suggests, the new bike is inspired by birds of prey, with design elements aimed at replicating the speed and ferocity of those birds.

The starting model for the customization was a 2014 version of the bike, which was deconstructed and put back together to look like a more traditional model. Other features include a custom tail section, a large LED truck light and bespoke aluminum bodywork. Lastly, the bike is finished with a subtle Falcon logo.
