Can You Spot the BMW R1200GS Adventure in These Photos?

Modding a BMW R1200GS Adventure is probably one of the rarest custom jobs we know of, at least, in terms of actually designing and crafting bespoke body kit parts.

At first glance, we had a bit of a hard time understanding what we're looking at, let alone figuring out that there was an R1200GS Adventure somewhere in the first picture.

However, after dozens of seconds that passed, we started to put things together and identified the trademark elements of the Adventure version of the R1200GS, suck as the two upper air intakes, the rear sub-frame, or the cylinders of the boxer engine.

After having ascertained that we had an R1200GS Adventure in front of our eyes, we started to analyze the machine and were left with mixed feelings. The job is, beyond any shadow of a doubt, one of the most spectacular we saw, ever, and it certainly looks like it was done by BMW itself.

Considering the complexity of this body kit, we can only say "chapeau bas" to the entire team that designed, crafted, and painted it. Now, we're not overly hyped on this machine, as it sort of misses the point of an adventure bike.

It is way too flashy and almost flamboyant, and we're having a hard time picturing it struggling uphill, on rocky trails, with the rear wheel slipping over wet tree roots and a thick layer of much covering all that pearly white.

On the other hand, this Wunderlich R1200GS Adventure is sure to turn many heads while retaining the excellent travel bike it is famous for. The extra beefy fairing will offer better protection against the elements, and this is also goo when spending long hours in the saddle.

Judging by the texture that can be seen in the photos, the bodywork of this GS Adventure appears to be made from carbon fiber, and this means that it doesn't add too much weight to the build. The Remus aftermarket exhaust should also save some weight, so we guess that the bike has good changes to feel almost as the stock version, only looking much different.

Finally, this is clearly NOT the bike you want to drop while tackling rough terrain...
