LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS

LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS

The BMW GS Adventure is a legendary off-road motorbike. Lego has had four-wheel fans covered for years with everything from model Ferrari F40s to Caterhams to Porsche 911s with working disc brakes. Now two-wheelers can join in on the fun with this 603-piece BMW R 1200 GS Adventure Technic set.

This is Lego’s first-ever Technic model to be produced in cooperation with a motorcycle manufacturer, they worked closely with BMW to only get the right proportions right, but to make it as accurately detailed as possible. The result is really something. There is a Lego version of the Telelever front suspension along with the moving two-cylinder boxer engine and the shaft drive, even color choices were kept correct down to the black spokes in the wheels.

The set even comes with model versions of BMW’s big cargo boxes to carry Minifig heads and toy guns, or whatever else you want to stick in there. Technic BMW R 1200 GS stands seven inches tall, and 13 inches long, perfect for a Power Ranger.

Another cool little feature, included in the kit is a special Lego Technic piece that commemorates 40 years of Technic models.

The LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS is available from Amazon for $59.99.
