Munich. A detailed model of the BMW R 1200 GS Adventure developed by BMW Motorrad and LEGO Technic goes on sale from 01 January 2017. The BMW Motorrad best-seller will now find its way into the homes of motorcycling enthusiasts of all ages. 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.

“BMW Motorrad is very pleased to be able to share the enthusiasm for this bike with the LEGO Technic community. Two companies came together, both of them with a longstanding tradition to make emotional products for their customers”, says Heiner Faust, Head of Sales and Marketing of BMW Motorrad.

 

Authentic reproduction featuring numerous details

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 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”, says Alexander Buckan, Head of BMW Motorrad Vehicle Design.

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.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the automotive market in Germany. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures are already calculated on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC values listed have been calculated back to the NEDC measurement procedure where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the definition of taxes and other vehicle-related levies that are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle- specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at bmw.de/wltp.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the following web site www.dat.de.
