French Tuner builds BMW R1200R ’Le Rider’
Panda Moto is a French Tuner that was inspired by last year’s Milan Show BMW hit, the Lo Rider, and decided to have its own approach towards the idea and yet remain faithful to the German brand. So it took a standard BMW R1200R and chopped up the rear end in order to achieve the radical look while bringing in a pair of lightweight, standard spoked wheels and Ohlins suspensions to support those. The steering geometry was altered to improve handling and a handcrafted exhaust is sure to make a screamer out of this beauty.
The Panda Moto R1200R weighs 217 kg, making for a pretty heavy piece of two-wheeled machinery. But, with prices ranging between 18,000 - 24,000 euros, weight is this bike’s last problem.
