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.
