C1 Williams - 2000
Imagem

The special edition BMW C1 Williams is different for its colours, its very rich basic equipment and its design which is that of BMW Williams F1-Teams. The motor is the same of the other C1 200 models, with a propeller that distributes the 50% of power more than the smaller 125 model. In this way the C1 200 accelerates from 0 to 0 - 50 km/h in 3.9 seconds and reachs a maximum speed that exceeds 115 km/h. In Italy there aren't many BMW C1 Williams in the streets, but in Great Britain this model is very diffused, nearly like other models as the Family's Friend and the Executive. The F1 Pilots of BMW drive this vehicle (They see Schumacher himself turning with a C1, but naturally a sparkling RED one!).

BMW F 650 RR Dakar - 1999
ImagemImagem

BMW seems to lack the nerve to do something about it themselves, so Richard Schalber and Touratech built their own F650 Rallye. Schalber was the brain behind most parts of the newest version of the F650GS. The now standard frame was first made for the 1997 Schalber-BMW rallye bike that was ridden by Andrea Mayer.
The F650 Rallye is made out of a standard F650GS. The potential buyer has to decide weather to have his own Funduro to be rebuilt or just order a new one with transformation included. Of the original base is not much to be left. Suspension is replaced for the beautiful parts of WP-Suspension to link the Exel rims with the rest. A lightweight aluminium rear fork is developed. All plastics are replaced with rallye worthy parts, including extra fuel capacity. The total amount of fuel on board is now 50 litres! Touratech is responsible for the cockpit, something they are very familiar with. Total weight without carburant comes to 173 kilos.
The engine still will be original but modifications are planned. Phase 1 include some electronic modifications and Phase 2 replaces the not so easy to repair yourself fuel injection with regular carbs. The Phase 2 engine should deliver about 80 untamed horses...
The rallye ready F650 will cost about 14,000 Euro including the base F650GS. This price makes it possible for privateers to get themselves in the first ranks of some of these desert rallyes.
The BMW Enduro Team mastered the 1999 Granada-Dakar a lot better. From the fourth stage on Gallardo and Sainct were first and secont in the overall bike standings. Due to electrical problems Gallardo fell back, but Sainct held his pole position untill the beaches in Dakar. An awful lot of KTM riders hunted him but all they saw was the dustcloud at the rear end of Saincts F650RR. With only four minutes advance on the number two Richard Sainct wan the Dakar of 1999. The entire team made it to the finishline and Andrea Mayer wan the Ladies-cup.
Richard Schalber - former winner of the Pharao-Rallye - is well known for preparing two-valve BMW boxers on behalf of rally-pilots and adventurers. Besides Schalber teaches enduro in the BMW Enduropark Hechtlingen and organises the Transdanubia Rallye that goes through Germany, Austria and Hungary. This rally is dominated by BMW-riders.

Evolution of last year's winning bike.
After Richard Sainct's win on the F 650 RR in the 1999 Dakar Rally, a post-mortem on his bike showed that some of the components had only just made the distance or were showing signs of the very severe loads they had encountered.
If the rally had lasted much longer these parts would have probably reached the limit of their reliable working life.
The aim of further development work was therefore to increase both the durability and the performance potential of all the bike's components, to strive for a better "package" and to systematically eliminate all potential sources of failure.
A number of smaller assemblies forming part of the engine underwent design revision and the improvements were tested both on the test rig and on the motorcycle itself.
A new airbox with a new filter system capable of ensuring that the engine is only supplied with genuinely clean air has also increased the power output slightly and achieved a higher, flatter torque curve.
The rear tank was also reduced in width for a similar reason. A side-effect of these changes was that the weight was concentrated even more in the centre of the bike.
A separate central tank fulfilled the same purpose; the battery was repositioned farther forward and lower down, and together with other minor alterations the overall impression is of a most harmoniously styled bike and a very compact package.
The outer shape was checked again in the wind tunnel for possible improvements to the aerodynamics and also wind protection for the rider on these fast but very long rally stages.
In the very important spring and shock absorber area, several evolution stages were introduced in the course of the year. New ideas were adopted in conjunction with those that have already proved successful.
In a series of indoor and outdoor tests and with know-how acquired from the last Dakar Rally, new suspension settings were chosen and the strength of the components and assemblies increased.
In the new blue outfit of our sponsor Gauloises the bike can be regarded as a well-balanced design aimed specifically at defending our winning position from last year. Its technical specification and its appearance both indicate that evolution work has been successful but that the risk of more revolutionary changes has been avoided.

BMW G 450X Factory Replica - 2009
Imagem

In general, it is only the graphics that make the difference from a normal G450X, but BMW also throws a Acrapovic-potte - of course "just for racing use." Pot meet FIM requirements and lowers the weight by about a kilogram.
BMW also offers To Kit if you plan to use the G450X to enduroløp. "The basic kit consists of wear parts for brakes and clutch, chain and sprockets, air and oil filters, spark plugs and extra clutch and brake Hendler.
In the other package comes with an extra set of wheels, spokes, tires and hold "much more". It is not stated price for packages with accessories, but the whole point is, of course, it will be cheaper than buying parts separately.

BMW K1200R Resident Evil 3 - 2007
Imagem
Imagem

Hollywood actress Milla Jovovich was paired with a very special BMW K 1200 R in Munich following an advanced press screening of the "Resident Evil: Extinction" movie, , Thirty-one year-old Jovovich was in Germany to promote the latest instalment in the best-selling Resident Evil movie franchise, based on the gaming phenomenon of the same name.

Jovovich’s character, Alice, rides a BMW K 1200 R in the film. Milla Jovovich, borne in the Ukrainia, commenting the BMW Motorrad, that is based on the 163 horsepower four-cylinder K 1200 R - currently the most powerful production naked roadster in the world - "I’m not the best judge but I’ve had a few guy friends freak out over it and say that the bones [design] are awesome. It looks great."

Created by talented artist Georg Huber to commemorate the BMW K 1200 R’s starring role in the new action blockbuster, the ’RE3’ show bike features immaculately airbrushed spinal bones on the tank and detailed gold lettering on the fairing to tie in with the theme of the action movie, which takes off where Resident Evil: Apocalypse left off.
Jovovich has starred in many films, including futuristic, action thriller Ultraviolet; Sir Richard Attenborough’s Chaplin; Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element; and Spike Lee’s He Got Game.

Commenting on the "Resident Evil: Extinction" movie, Jovovich is proud of the work she has done on the third film in this trilogy: "It was a lot of fun making it - these films have been a great experience for me.
I guess I feel like I can do a lot of different parts but action I really love. I love training and working with weapons; it’s a lot of fun but takes a lot of focus.
I get to recreate this character and it’s been a great opportunity for me - not many actors can say they have a 3 DVD box-set."

BMW Krauser MKM 1000 - 1980
Imagem

There will always be a small number of motorcycle enthusiasts who insist on something different; it is their aim to improve upon excellence. If the prime mover is a German, he will usually pick on his native BMW as a candidate for the treatment. So it was with Mike Krauser, his name already famous for high quality, quickly detachable luggage systems. He looked at the iop BMW of the time, the sporting R100RS, and found it wanting.

First thing to go was the frame. Comfortable suspension and plenty of room for two had no place on the super-sporting machine he envisaged; nor did the simple (and inevitably flexible) tubular frame. Krauser commissioned German aircraft engineers to design an alternative, and they came up with a masterpiece of complexity, a veritable bird-cage of short, straight tubes that double- and triple-triangulated one another for maximum rigidity, The BMW suspension was modified to eliminate the mid-corner wallows, then the whole was clothed in compact bodywork that echoed the BMW's austere styling without the bulk; the petrol tank, seat and rear mudguard were unified in one piece of glass fibre. Krauser then turned to the flat-twin engine. The overall design was excellent, well-balanced and well-cooled, but he wanted more flexibility as well as more urge at high revs. He commissioned a more modern four-valve head to replace the BMW's two valves, which not only improved the breathing throughout the rev range, but also lifted the rev ceiling.

The MKM1000 was a long time in the making, and all the careful development work has produced a fine bike. To ride, it is essentially a BMW - the familiar Boxer engine and the sensations of the shaft drive see to that. But it is a BMW apart. First, there is the riding position, crouched over the bars in a sporting style. It throws the weight forward rather uncomfortably at lower speeds, but the more the wind lifts the rider, the better control becomes.

The handling is concomitantly sporting, with a far more direct response to the subtleties of control than any standard BMW. Engine modifications perform the same function of tautening up the German luxury bike to release its sporting potential. Curiously, the first sensation of the four-valve engine is of milder manners, since the Krauser pulls smoothly and strongly from below 3,000rpm. It is the crispness higher up Ihe rev range that makes it a 130mph-plus machine. The MKM1000 is exotic, very expensive, and very rare - a special version of a rather special breed.

BMW R 1200ST Limited Edition - 2007
Imagem

Not every highway is flat, not every road is straight. That’s why BMW has created the
R 1200 ST, a successor to the famed R 1150 RS and a clear step sportier than the
R 1200 RT with which is shares its basic engine and chassis. Your first clue is the rakish bodywork, shaped by the wind and defiant of convention. Twin stacked headlights lead the way with a blast of useful illumination. The pointed lower fairing helps channel cooling air to the engine-oil cooler. Like the R 1150 RS before it, the R 1200 ST has a mechanically adjustable windscreen to tailor the amount of wind protection to the rider’s liking.

Behind the fairing, the rider fits into a comfortable and sporty position thanks to adjustable clip-on handlebars set into an ideal ergonomic stance. The sporty ergonomics, reminiscent of the R 1150 RS’s, offer maximum control and comfort for high-speed and long-distance touring. The alloy handlebars adjust vertically along a 1-inch (25mm) range and, together with the height-adjustable seat, offer up all the tools a rider needs to create a personalized comfort zone.

As with the R 1200 RT, the R 1200 ST includes a dual-position adjustable rider’s saddle – 31.9 or 32.7 inches (810 or 830mm) – with an optional lower saddle – 30.7 or 31.5 inches (780 or 800mm).

Instruments of effortless travel

New for the R 1200 RT and R 1200 ST are stylish and legible instrument clusters that include an Info Flatscreen rider-information display. This module includes information on oil temperature, fuel consumption and tank level, plus gear selection.

Power for one, power for all: sharing the new boxer

Both the R 1200 RT and the R 1200 ST take advantage of new technologies launched with the R 1200 GS last year. Beneath the dramatically reshaped cylinder heads lies an amazing new engine. Although it retains the classic Boxer opposed-cylinder architecture, virtually everything is new compared to the previous-generation 1130cc Boxer family. Maximum power for both the R 1200 RT and the R 1200 ST is 110 hp, up from 100 hp in the R 1200 GS and a massive 16-percent jump from the engine in the R 1150 series.

This newfound power starts at the advanced cylinder heads. Compared to the
R 1200 GS, the RT/ST engine employs a higher compression ratio – 12.0:1 compared to the GS’s 11.0:1 – and revised camshafts for greater thermal efficiency and increased airflow through the cylinder heads. The four valves retain their high-cam activation system, which uses a single, lightweight camshaft high in each cylinder head to operate the valves through short rocker arms fitted with easy-to-maintain screw-type lash adjusters. Taking a page from high-performance aircraft engines, BMW engineers selected sodium-filled exhaust valves for the R 1200 engine because they promote more efficient heat transfer. Two spark plugs per cylinder are again used, as on the R 1200 GS, resulting in fast, efficient burning of the fuel-air mixture in the combustion chamber.

In addition to those changes, the new RT/ST engine configuration features a 500-rpm-higher redline – now 7500 rpm – to take advantage of the engine’s increased high-rpm power. A revised intake system works with a new, larger exhaust system to further improve engine efficiency and power output. It says something about the basic new Boxer design that a group of comparatively minor changes can bring about a 10-percent increase without loss of low-end or midrange torque.

Otherwise, the RT/ST engine is similar to the R 1200 GS’s, using aluminum cylinders — with treated bore for wear resistance without the weight of an iron or steel liner – to carry the same 101mm bore as the R 1150 engine. However, a 2.5mm-longer stroke (now 73mm) provides a total displacement of 1170cc with a desirably “oversquare” bore/stroke ratio to permit high engine speeds. Despite being larger, the new pistons are lighter than the R 1150’s. Under-piston oil jets — a racing technology designed to remove heat from the piston and combustion chamber by spraying engine oil at the bottoms of the pistons — are larger and flow more oil.

A new balncing act

Motorcyclists the world over marveled at the R 1200 GS’s impressive smoothness, the result of the first-ever use of a balance shaft in an opposed-twin motorcycle engine. Although the Boxer design has what’s known as perfect primary balance — the major reciprocating forces are directly opposed because as one piston reaches the top of the stoke, the opposite piston does as well, canceling out the primary forces inherent in reciprocating designs — there is some residual vibration caused from the connecting rods not being directly overlaid. In effect, the engine wants to oscillate around its center of mass, as viewed from above.

By employing a counterbalancing shaft, BMW has eliminated this kind of vibration, called rocking couple. As a result, the new engine is dramatically smoother, permitting not only elevated engine speeds with fewer stresses on components (including the rider) but it can be mounted to a lighter frame without sacrificing strength.

BMW’s engineers worked overtime to artfully locate the counterbalancer into an already efficiently packaged powerplant, and their solution is both inspired and effective. In the traditional R259 engine family, a gear-driven sub shaft is positioned below and parallel to the crankshaft plane that contains drive sprockets for the chain-driven camshafts as well as for the oil pump. In the new R 1200 RT/ST engine, this shaft is larger and houses, inside its inner diameter, a second shaft driven at crank speed — the sub, or countershaft, is driven at one-half crank speed — with one of the two necessary balancing weights integrated into the drive gear and the other bolted to the far end of the shaft outside of the oil bath to help reduce power loss. This design adds remarkably little weight, uses a minimum of engine power, makes the powerplant no larger yet dramatically improves rider comfort. And, just as important, the Boxer engine’s distinguishing opposed-twin rumble remains; this is a smooth yet charismatic engine.

Only 500 units made of this model!
