A detailed model of the BMW R 1200 GS Adventure developed by BMW Motorrad and LEGO Technic goes on sale from January 2017. The model set – consisting of 603 parts – is the product of close collaboration between the LEGO Technic and BMW Motorrad design teams. Combining innovative design with the art of engineering, it is the first ever LEGO Technic model to be produced in cooperation with a motorcycle manufacturer.
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 recognise 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 tyres 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 model is 18 cm high, 33 cm long and 10 cm wide, and an interactive LEGO app is available for the set that features 3D assembly instructions. The LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS Adventure also has a surprise in store for collectors: the LEGO Group celebrates 40 years of LEGO Technic next year and to mark the occasion, the kit will contain a specially designed LEGO Technic piece.
