BMW will be unveiling their new big-bore adventure bike at the Intermot show in Cologne, Germany.
The show takes place October 3-7; it’ll also give the public a chance to check out the new F700 GS series, and the HP4 version of the S1000 RR superbike.
Spy shots seem to indicate BMW’s new top-of-the-line dual sport will be water-cooled, and likely 1250 cc or 1300 cc.
If you’re perfectly happy with air-cooling, though, and you wish your current BMW looked a little more like the original R80G/S adventure bike, you’re in luck. Unit Garage has come out with a kit for the BMW R1200 GS that not only emulates the look of the BMW’s seminal adventure machine, it also cuts weight; the customized bike weighs 6.4 kg less.
They’re also adding luggage options for users who want to emulate the R80G/S’s look. The kit comes fully painted, and it comes with an instructional video showing you how to remove the original parts, and bolt the new bits on.
Unit Garage’s Kit R120G/S is designed to install in about four hours; it’s compatible with 1200 cc GS models from 2004 to 2012. We’re not sure how you’d ever get one here from Europe, but it costs 3,920 euros.
