LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS Features A Specially Designed Technic Piece

LEGO motorcycle set is rare. Even more rare is an official collaboration between a bike maker and the world famous toy maker, but here it is, the LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS Adventure – the first ever LEGO Technic model made with involvement from a motorcycle maker and in this case, it is, of course, BMW Motorrad. This detailed model, which boasts 603 pieces, is the result of a close collaboration between the Danish toy maker and BMW Motorrad. It features the familiar R 1200 GS lines, known as the flyline, along with steerable handlebars, adjustable windshield, authentic replica of BMW Telelever front wheel suspension, shaft drive, black spoke wheels with knobby tires, and a moving 2-cylinder boxer engine packed into its LEGO Technic space frame.

BMW Unveiled Carbon Fiber Sport Bike Along With A Slew Of Bike Updates

Man Parks E30 BMW M3 In The Living To Escape Hurricane Matthew

You know how some apartments or homes are designed to have a car parked inside the living? Well, clearly, Instagram user Jalilsup’s home isn’t one of them, but that did not stop him from rolling in his precious E30 BMW M3 into the house as Hurricane Matthew approaches. What he did leaves the Internet with mixed feelings. Some said he was silly not to drive away to keep himself and the car safe, while others simply baffled by the love he had for his car. Whatever it was, it was his choice and also, it helps if he happen to have a double door instead of those puny single door. Even then, Jalilsup’s prized car only marginally made into the home.

BMW Vision Next 100 Motorcycle Is An Absolute Porn For Futurists

Be futuristics, BMW Vision Next 100 Motorcycle unveiled earlier today at the “Iconic Impulses. The BMW Group Future Experience” exhibition in L.A. may get you all aroused. We have seen our fair share of futuristic bikes, but this one here rewrites everything that have read and seen about bike of the future. And yes, it still has wheels though, unfortunately. Hoverbike is way further than BMW’s vision of future bike. Aesthetically, the BMW Vision Next 100 Motorcycle is probably the first bike worthy of being called exotic, because it is. I mean, just look at the form. Continue reading BMW Vision Next 100 Motorcycle Is An Absolute Porn For Futurists

BMW Celebrates 30 Years Of M5 With “Most Powerful” M5 Yet

So, you have probably read that BMW has unveiled the most powerful M5, the “30 Jahre M5” (30 years of the M5), to mark the 30-year anniversary of the BMW M5. But with only 300 examples offered worldwide, the “30 Jahre M5” is just about a rare find as an honest man in Congress, oh, well, maybe not that rare, but you can’t argue that 300 is not a lot to go around. At least, BMW didn’t try to pull off a 30 number, which should be more fitting for the 30 years. Anywho, fortunately for BMW lovers, there are additional 200 units, though not exactly the 30 Jahre M5, to fill the demand. For around 129,500 Euros or more (or about US$142K+), you could get your hands on a similarly spec-ed M5, dubbed BMW M5 “Competition Edition.” Continue reading BMW Celebrates 30 Years Of M5 With “Most Powerful” M5 Yet

BMW Radical Concept Goes Beyond Radical; It Is Breathtakingly Radical

Istanbul-based industrial designer and CGI artist Mehmet Doruk Erdem is no stranger to designing bold concept motorcycles and one of his latest concept two-wheelers, the BMW Radical Concept, continues that tradition, embarking on a radical design that’s very monolithic and yet, strangely minimalist. No details were provided by this talented dude, who obviously, has lots of creative juice flooding inside him, but then again, do we need more details? Nope. Not really. The renders are enough to blow us away that pretty much leaves us speechless. Continue reading BMW Radical Concept Goes Beyond Radical; It Is Breathtakingly Radical

BMW Pays Tribute To The Iconic BMW 2002 Turbo With BMW 2002 Hommage

If you are a true blue BMW fan, you know 2002 Turbo, the must revered and iconic BMW car. Born in the early 70s, it was the first production BMW to received a turbocharged engine and during then, it was a rare breed as not many cars had force induction during that era and therefore, it got quite an attention.

Fast forward to day, after more than forty years and fifty since the design first came about, the BMW 2002 Turbo lives again, albeit one that you can’t buy just yet.

BMW Pays Tribute To M2 Coupe With Limited Edition BMW Cruise M Bike

The BMW Cruise M Bike Limited Edition probably won’t fit in the trunk of your would be new ride, the BMW M2 Coupe, but if you ordered it (the M2) in its official color of Long Beach Blue metallic, then it will be a good fit – despite not fitting in the boot as mentioned. But hey, there’s always aesthetic-spoiling bicycle rack or roof rack, right? Yeah, those. Urghhh. Sorry, folks, we are not fans of any attachment on the exterior of a car that does not pushes the downforce down. So anyways, back to the bike. As the product name suggests, it is limited edition and it can be yours whether or not you drive a BMW M2 Coupe. Continue reading BMW Pays Tribute To M2 Coupe With Limited Edition BMW Cruise M Bike
