Notice the black bike in the foreground; it has no silver smoke nor pin striping.
My guess is this bike was a prototype bike, or perhaps a color option BMW wanted to get press reaction to?

Interesting guess, but no cigar . . . .
That's a photo taken in Holland showing a gathering organised by a gentleman by the name of Theo Terweil (sp?) who owns a business which specialises in painting R90S bodywork. That particular gathering was held only a few years ago IIRC.
