the LEGO technic BMW ‘R 1200 GS adventure’ is designed to be as faithful as possible. the characteristic lines of the motorcycle – the so-called ‘flyline’ – moving handlebars and even an adjustable windshield recreate the original in miniature along with numerous technical details. enthusiasts will recognize the authentic BMW telelever front wheel suspension and the shaft drive as well as the moving BMW motorrad 2-cylinder boxer engine, which are set in motion as soon as the motorcycle is moved. even the black spoke wheels with studded tires resemble those of the model’s real counterpart. thanks to the many details, the set is not only realistic but also fun and challenging to build.

‘the proportions of the R 1200 GS adventure have been recreated outstandingly well in the LEGO technic model. we are excited to see how lego design has reproduced so many visual and technical details of the R 1200 GS adventure. the close and creative cooperation between the two design teams was particularly impressive – it went beyond a conventional licensing agreement’, commented alexander buckan, head of bmw motorrad vehicle design.
