BMW R1200R custom

dechavesgarage_d1200rThis heavily modified BMW R1200R is the brainchild of a former Lamborghini engineer, the magnificently named Pablo González de Chaves Fernández. The D1200R wraps BMW’s powerful boxer engine in a new chassis and bodywork, with an exhaust system taken from the incendiary HP2. The most radical element, though, is the steering and suspension. De Chaves has adapted an idea from another Spanish engineer called Juan Elizalde, creating a suspension and steering system that hard-links the front and back wheels to increase stability. We’ve no idea how well it works on the road, but this BMW motorbike sure looks the business.

    Amazing they created an even more radical front suspension than the R1200R already had.

    Nice to see they kept the ABS.

    This suspension concept really takes the cake & I mean that in a positive way. I applaud the gifted briliance of the designer as he has done it just for the sheer love of it. Anything which proves to make motorcycling safer despite its radical appearance is worthy of very serious consideration by all in the motorcycling faternity. Manufacturers & riders alike!
