BMW never designed the F800R to be a scrambler, but that didn’t stop Touratech, the touring and parts specialists, to build what they call The Streetline F800 ScrambleR by only making use of a few styling tweaks.
By using clip-ons, a round headlight, bash guard, scrambler-style tyres and a numberboard among others, Touratech achieved what BMW never thought at and they even plan on selling a kit with all the parts, enabling BMW F800R owners to build their own scrambler.
Design guru Oberdan Bezzi has come up with a very interesting Bavarian adventure touring rendering, one that is imagined to replace the current BMW R 1200 GS.
The Italian designer sees in the R 1250 GS as a totally new motorcycle to take around the world, one with sport-touring credentials and sharper looks. The bigger Boxer engine is supposed to develop 120hp, while the bike weighs 18kg (39.68 lbs) less than the current selling one and relies on totally different weight distribution and shorter wheelbase than ever before.
We can’t help noticing the underseat exhaust and much more compact overall look, which is what riders expect from their million miles motorcycle.
