BMW R1200GS Adventure Long Way Down Replicas
Imagem
Two replica BMW 1200GS Adventure motorcycles, one of Ewan McGregor and the other of Charley Boorman are waiting for their future customers in Manchester. By the number of fans that the Long Way Down TV series has, the bikes won’t gather dust for sure, but it is well worth mentioning these as THE internet find of the day.
The replicas stand out thanks to the same leopard and zebra patterns while traction control, ABS brakes and a tire pressure control system are standard and ready for those who feel like going on the Brit’s tire marks from John O’Groats to Cape Town.
The blue one is Ewan McGregor’s replica and features one-off features such as a dynamic comfort pack, heated grips and an onboard computer, just to mention a few. It will sell for the equivalent of $14,814, which is quite a bargain considering the story to which it relates.
The Charley Boorman replica features extra pannier fastenings, fog lights and an electronic suspension adjuster and it will sell for the equivalent of $16,000.
Quite frankly, I believe that these bikes should belong to a single owner or at least those who buy them separately to be good friends, just like the authors of the historic journey are. This way, the story will go on and the bikes won’t drift away one from the other.

BMW K 1300 GT Exclusive Edition
Imagem
With the new special model K 1300 GT Exclusive Edition, BMW Motorrad sets a new milestone in the BMW world of experience Tour. With extensively upgraded fittings and a refined visual appearance it offers even greater travel suitability and exclusive "Gran Turismo" comfort at the very highest level.
Powered by a supreme 118 kW (160 hp) engine, the K 1300 GT Exclusive Edition benefits from heated grips and seat heating on cold days as well as providing optimum visibility for night riding with a xenon headlamp. The on-board computer provides travel-related data such as range, outside temperature and average fuel consumption and there is an electronic cruise control function for long stretches of motorway riding.
The chassis of the K 1300 GT Exclusive Edition provides enhanced riding dynamics and long-distance suitability with ESA II (Electronic Suspension Adjustment II). At the press of a button the rider can conveniently adapt the damping properties of the two spring struts and the spring rest ("spring preload") of the rear spring strut as well as the latter's spring rate and therefore the "hardness" of the suspension. This permits an unsurpassed level of chassis adjustment to rider and load as well as providing the very highest level of operating convenience.
The anti-slip control function ASC (Automatic Stability Control) contributes significantly to the active safety of the K 1300 GT Exclusive Edition. By electronically adjusting drive power at the rear wheel it especially supports the rider on road surfaces with a low friction coefficient and when there are sudden changes in friction levels. Another safety feature is the electronic tyre pressure control function RDC (Tyre Pressure Monitor).
With its well-conceived and high-quality storage space concept, the K 1300 GT Exclusive Edition is excellently equipped for long journeys. In addition to the pannier system this special model also features a large 49-litre topcase with common-key lock barrel and lid finished in body colour.
The paint finish Granite Grey metallic with contrasting trim parts in Granite Grey metallic matt in the area of the fuel tank side fairing and seat side fairing and the blue type plate emphasise the refined, exclusive character of the K 1300 GT Exclusive Edition.

An overview of highlights of the BMW K 1300 GT Exclusive Edition.
- Paint finish in Granite Grey metallic/Granite Grey metallic matt.
- Blue type plate.
- Heated grips.
- Seat heating.
- Xenon headlamp.
- On-board computer.
- ESA II.
- ASC.
- RDC.

BMW R 80GS Kalahari - 1996
Imagem

In 1997 a new model of the old model GS was launched in South Africa. Known as the R80GS Kalahari, it originates from the R80GS Basic available in Europe. It is white in colour with a blue frame.
The following is a description of what the motorcycle looks like: Round headlight with old instrument cluster as found on early model GS's and G/S's. Small windscreen. High front mudguard with Marzocchi front forks. White Power rear suspension. Early model 35 liter Paris Dakar petrol tank made of steel. No crashbars or sidestand. The rear subframe is the same as that of the first G/S's with the lugage rack at the back as an optional extra that bolt on. Paralever suspension. R80GS Kalahari decals. The old reliable 798cc aircooled boxer engine is used.

BMW R 80GS Dakar Replica - 1980
Imagem

In 1980 the R80 G/S production model takes up the successful achievements of BMW's Works Team in off-road racing. The biggest endurance motorcycle at the time, the R80 G/S is ideally suited both for road use and for a trip on rough terrain, BMW thus paving the way for the entirely new market segment of large-displacement touring enduro's. A significant innovation is the BMW Monolever single swinging arm on the rear wheel.
BMW off-road machines participate from the start in the long-distance rally from Paris to Dakar in the West African country of Senegal. And in just three attempts the Boxer with its reliable cooling, a low centre of gravity, and the ease of maintenance offered by shaft drive really makes its way to success in its third try in 1981: French desert specialist Hubert Auriol wins the motorcycle category and is able to repeat his success in 1983. The 1,000-cc two-cylinders still based on series models bring home the title also in 1984 and 1985, former Motocross World Champion Gaston Rahier from Belgium leaving the competition far behind.
The R80 G/S and its successor, the R100 GS, quickly become successful achievers in the BMW range. Particularly "serious" motorcyclists the world over often covering long distances prefer BMW's enduro machines not just when riding in the desert. And as a new symbol of the brand, the single swinging arm is soon to be found also on other BMW machines.

BMW R100S Willi Michel Racer
Imagem

Willi Michel was a BMW factory race car driver that did some wild things with cars and bikes when he retired. He only made a very small number of bikes (less than 20).

The Willi Michel cafe racer could only be purchased through BMW dealers in either road or full race specification, and it was more expensive than a new R100RS. This is a road version, which came with lights, indicators, etc. It has 44mm valves, ported and polished heads, 336 race camshaft, close ratio indexed gearbox, lightened and balanced flywheel, frame bracing, Willi's own 3/4 race fairing and single ducktail seat.

BMW R 1100GS 75th Anniversary - 1998
Imagem

R 1100 GS "75"

The 75th Anniversary models stand out from their regular counterparts by their special colour schemes, body lines and stylish "75 anniversary" details. They are also equipped with a wider range of fittings and equipment as standard.

THE TRAILBLAZER THAT CAME FROM THE DESERT. THEY STILL TELL THE STORY.
The BMW GS an ordinary motorcycle? Many would say: no, it's an idea expressed in two-wheeled form. Or, at the very least, a true phenomenon. A trailblazing creation, in fact.
When BMW launched the G/S back in 1980. it was emphatically out there on its own. It signaled the start of a new motorcycling concept: an enduro with a large engine and plenty of power at its disposal to achieve a masterful blend of ride comfort and ruggedness. In fact, it soon became the trendsetter for an entirely new range of machines.
In 1981, only a year after its launch, Hubert Auriol won the Paris-Dakar Rally on a competition version of the BMW R 80 G/S, proving that its high-tech features and the harsh desert environment were an enticingly exotic match. Three more victories in what is probably the toughest rally in the world followed in the course of the 1980s.
The long list of G/S triumphs extends right up to the present day. And it includes a few surprises, such as Jutta Kleinschmidt, winner of the Ladies' Category in the "Paris-Cape Town" adventure rally at the start of 1993 on a near-standard R 100 GS PD.
These victories were not the only reason for the immense public appeal of the GS. It has been voted Enduro of the Year in Germany nearly every year since 1980, and more than 60,000 have been built by 1994.
The horizontally-opposed Boxer engine was the obvious choice for the 1994 GS. Not simply because it reflects the bike's temperament, but above all because of the fundamental advantages that this engine principle offers for a large enduro. In addition to its refinement and pulling power, the Boxer engine has a low center of gravity and excellent heat dissipation from the cylinders in the air stream.
The 1994 BMW Boxer engine, available on the R 1100 RS. confirms that the horizontally-opposed Boxer concept still offers ample scope for development. Riders and members of the trade press gave it rave reviews. For example, the German magazine "Tourenfahrer" wrote in its May 1993 issue: "Even with a 'mere' 90 horsepower, the BMW has nothing to fear from any other superbike".
But we had ambitious plans for our new enduro, since its priorities were by no means the same as for a sports touring bike. High torque, for example, was more important than sheer power. In other words, we needed an engine with smooth, easily-regulated flow of power even at low engine speeds, permitting energetic acceleration at any time.
The 1994 Boxer engine on the BMW R 1100 GS satisfies these requirements and more. Even just above idling speed the large high-performance engine delivers ample torque - over 58 lb/ft from 2,500 rpm up to almost the engine speed limit. Peak torque of 71.54 lb/ft is reached at only 5,250 rpm. The advantages are obvious: impressive traction when it's needed, but without the excessively high engine speeds that cause increased material fatigue.
The maximum power output of 59 kW (80 bhp) at 6,750 rpm means that high continuous speeds are possible on the highway
The 1994 BMW Boxer satisfies the requirements that the enduro engine of the future must fulfill. Thanks to its completely new mechanical layout and engine management by ultramodern Digital Motor Electronics, the new two-cylinder engine can claim greater economy, durability. robustness, ease of repair and, above all, environmental compatibility. A key feature of the Boxer engine is the high-camshaft control with four valves per cylinder, which maximizes engine efficiency and minimizes both exhaust emissions and fuel consumption.

SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY YOU WON'T FIND ANYWHERE ELSE IS STANDARD ON THIS BIKE. FOR EXAMPLE, THE NEW BMW TELELEVER.
The advanced running gear on the 1994 BMW GS is illustrated most impressively by the BMW Telelever, BMW's new front suspension system that has already demonstrated what progress means on the BMW R 1100 RS. All test riders agree that our objective of creating a superior alternative to the telescopic fork has been achieved.
The Telelever can excel to an even greater degree on the 1994 BMW R 1100 GS than on the R 1100 RS sports tourer, because the concept is really put to the test on poor surfaces.
A glance at its operating principle reveals why this is so. The Telelever combines the advantages of the front fork and front swinging arm. In other words, it still has fork tubes, with the difference that they no longer contain springs and dampers. Instead, a single central spring strut performs their function.
The fork is mounted on a bridge between the sliding tubes on a leading arm, and on a ball joint (ball-jointed fork) at the front of the frame. The ingenious feature of this layout is that steering movement is made possible by the ball joints on the sliding-tube bridge and in the front frame. These ball joints are free from play and require no maintenance. Braking forces are largely introduced into the rigid engine housing by way of the lower ball joint, which is bolted to the leading arm. The leading arm is pivoted to the engine housing. The upper ball joint is bolted to the fork bridge.
In contrast to the telescopic fork, castor angle and wheelbase remain largely unchanged across the entire range of suspension travel even when the suspension is compressed a long way, thus ensuring maximum stability in all riding conditions.
A useful anti-dive effect, which prevents the motorcycle from plunging
Vie BMW Telelever is one at Ihe most m\ new motorcycle design developments at our time, yet already tolly matured and acknowledged as the best because of all the advantages it bnngs. dynamic stability, better handling and the ability to withstand extreme loads. Precisely the things that matter most.
forward when the brakes are applied forcefully, is also achieved. Consequently, there is always sufficient spring travel available - a vital improvement in comfort and safety on poor roads.
And the fact that there are now no fork support springs means that very little friction is caused, and suspension response is significantly better.
A factor that is particularly important for off-road riding: the entire structure is very strong, but light weight and virtually non-wearing. The fork tube seals scarcely have any loads to bear, and a steering head bearing that would otherwise be subjected to high loads is unnecessary. The typical problems encountered by conventional telescopic forks are avoided - the Telelever can accordingly clock up 62,000 miles without the need for maintenance.
The impressive technical maturity of this solution was confirmed by Motorrad magazine (issue 18/93) which evaluated various alternatives to the BMW R 1100 RS Telelever. Its conclusion: the testing team considered the Telelever to be the most impressive, highly advanced concept of all.
In contrast to the sports touring version, the Telelever for the BMW R 1100 GS has been adjusted to obtain a suspension layout that satisfies roadgoing and off-road conditions equally well. The new front spring strut illustrates this most clearly: with 7.58" of spring travel, it easily absorbs the most extreme surface irregularities; in addition, spring preload can be set to five different rates. allowing the rider of the GS to adopt preferred settings for any given surface conditions. A further innovation: the handlebar is decoupled from the Telelever by a pivot structure, so that the rider does not feel the turning movements that result from the considerable amount of spring travel.

THE ENDURO IS NOW EVEN MORE ADVANCED:

WITH SECOND-GENERATION BMW ABS.
A generously dimensioned brake system easily ■■GS' high performance in check-* is responsive and not susceotiole to foeSi i ii ■fremeloads.
The first ABS for motorcycles was invented by BMW, and has long since proved its value on roadgoing motorcycles; over 40,000 riders of BMW motorcycles to date have chosen this important option. Their decision was a sensible one, because if the brakes are applied forcefully, ABS prevents the wheels from locking; in many circumstances locked wheels would cause the rider to be thrown off the bike.
This added feature is now available for the first time to enduro riders. Experience has shown that large enduros clock up most of their miles in ordinary traffic - and therefore have to cope with increasingly demanding riding conditions. It's good to know that ABS is there for you.
On the other hand, as every professional knows, in order to keep the motorcycle under control in off-road conditions or on loose surfaces, it may be necessary to have one wheel locked for reasons of stability or effective braking. A stationary rear wheel builds up a wedge of loose material between the rear wheel and the ground, to help brake the motorcycle.
The solution chosen for the new BMW R 1100 GS: the new ABS II, available as an optional extra, can be switched off whenever its effect might be undesirable.
In actuality, this will hardly be necessary. The ABS II is so effective that even BMW test riders have difficulty performing better. Test rides show that ABS II performs well on unstable surfaces - it's even been known to stop on ice without locking the wheels.
BMW ABS is, therefore, always activated unless the rider deliberately switches it off. This prevents any unpleasant surprises as a result of it having been shut down inadvertently; the ABS can only be switched off by pressing the cancel button at the same time as the ignition is turned to start the engine. Whenever the ignition is switched off and back on again, ABS is automatically reactivated.
The new ABS II has mature software that is designed to cope with even the most unusual braking conditions. For instance, it takes effect even before a rear wheel leaves the ground as a result of excessively violent braking.
Very advanced technology is used: ABS II for the first time has a "piston system with relative pressure monitoring". This system maintains the braking effect at a very high level throughout the period for which the brakes are applied hard.
Its functional principle: rotation of both wheels is permanently monitored by sensors and the readings passed to the ABS control unit. If this identifies a tendency on the part of one or both wheels to lock. the pressure modulator is activated. It reduces braking pressure until the locked wheel begins to turn again.
The moving piston in the pressure modulator deliberately modifies the volumetric ratios and, ultimately, the brake pressure in the system for this purpose - separately for the front and rear wheels, of course.
This piston's high-speed actuation by means of a piston position monitoring sensor, together with the high-performance control unit, ensure that brake pressure is never reduced by more than the necessary amount.
The system has been developed to respond within four thousandths of a second. The wheels can always be braked just below the locking point without sacrificing any valuable braking distance.

BMW R 1100S - 2002 Boxer Cup Replica
Imagem

That's Not Just Your Heartbeat Racing Now in its 2nd year, the BoxerCup race held at Daytona International Speedway continues to grow in popularity. Now behold the newest rendition of the R1100S, the 2005 BoxerCup Replika. From the new three-tone paint scheme to the exuberant sound of the standard Laser exhaust, this is a machine that inspires all the senses. The taut sport suspension and a modified front end geometry that allows an even greater lean angle will urge you to push your skills to a higher level.

Unique Features

Power train
The BoxerCup Replika engine remains unchanged for 2005. Featuring 2 Spark ignition, the 1085cc engine generates 98bhp at 7,500 rpm and 70 lb ft of torque at 5,750 rpm.A notable change to the exhaust system is the use of an exhaust pipe by Laser.

Standard equipment on the 2005 Replika, the Laser exhaust will generate a deeper, throatier tone. A closed-loop 3-way catalytic converter is still in place for compliance with emissions requirements. The 6-speed transmission remains unchanged.

Frame & Suspension
The 2005 Replika now sports the same suspension found on BoxerCup Replika race bikes. By utilizing front fork tubes from the R1150GS, the chassis of the 2005 Replika is raised by 12mm, thus allowing for a greater lean angle. Seat height on the 2005 BoxerCup Replika is 860 mm (33.9 inches). Front spring travel is 4.3" (110 mm) and rear spring travel is 5.1" (130 mm) with spring strut pre-load adjustable by a hand-wheel.

BMW R1150GS Adventure Special - 2005
Imagem

Anyone who’s ridden an R engine equipped bike knows they have a character to them. The horizontally opposed twin becomes smooth in the 4000-5500 range, and outside of that it shakes. At a standstill a crank of the throttle will pull the bike to one side, an effect of the inertia of those horizontal cylinders being inline with the bike. It’s not that noticeable once in motion, but the twin vibe remains and is transmitted to the wide elk-horn bars.

A minor change of riding style and the vibe isn’t an issue. The relaxed seating means you don’t have to rest your weight on the grips, saving you any wrist ache from the vibes. The other key is to remember that the R1150GS’s engine has tractor-like torque, so to kill the vibe just up-shift a gear and you’re left with a gentle thrum of the engine. Until you crank on it and unleash the Angry Platypus!

The grip heaters, power port for electrics, hand guards and narrow windscreen do an great job of civilizing the beast’s anger and keeping you comfortable and warm – while adding to the eccentric look of the bike. The windscreen is especially well thought out, for a narrow piece of plastic it does its job by creating a high but narrow flow of air that even kept quiet the World’s Loudest Helmet. The protection is narrow, so hanging off puts you right in the air flow, luckily this is not a bike you have to move around on much anyway, so you stick to its protective bubble. Enough about cruising because the brilliant fun on the R1150GS is in terrorizing the traffic in the twists.

This bike handles it ways nothing two stories high has a right to. One of the reasons I had to try the bike was I watched several R1150GSs at a BMW track day and if taking a corner standing up nearly scraping a cylinder head while waving strikes you as fun then these things are a laugh riot. In the twisties this bike performs freakishly well, and it’s almost all counter-steer.

Just push on the elk-horns and lean, lean, then lean some more, and just when you think you shouldn’t go further do. Then do it all over in the other direction. And it’s all about counter steer! This makes it one of the most relaxing bikes to take through tight twisties that I have ever ridden – stay put in the comfy seat and push. Heck, while you’re at it remember to wave as you take an inside line past a sport bike or two… not that you would, that would be rude, but you honestly could.

You will also find yourself doing really silly things in parking lots, mostly circles and figure eights in spaces that would make your MSF instructors weep in joy. The bike plays well at slow speeds and even parking lots become a source of entertainment.

Well low speeds on the pavement anyway. The R1150GS didn’t serve us so well in slick mud off-road. But then we aren’t experienced off-roaders, so we’ll pass on judging its trail abilities.

The R1150GS may not be the best high-speed highway hauler, but it more than makes up for it in other departments. On the periodically rough roads of BC or constantly twisty canyons of California this bike in real world conditions would outperform many others on the road. That or one could just tour Africa… it’s almost a trailly.
