Lego Technic 42063 – BMW R 1200 GS Adventure – Set Preview

Lego Technic 42063 BMW R 1200 GS Adventure Review

Apparently there was an election today, but whatever the new leader of the free world decides to do / build / blow-up, we’ve found something that’s going to make 2017 just a little bit better; LEGO have brought another vehicle manufacturer into their officially licensed line-up!

Joining Volkswagen, Mercedes-BenzFerrari, Porsche, McLaren, Volvo, Caterham and others, BMW Motorrad (BMW’s bike division) have become the latest LEGO Group partner with the arrival of the new 42063 BMW Motorrad R 1200 GS Adventure Technic set.

Constructed from 603 pieces, the BMW R 1200 GS Adventure celebrates forty years since the Technic line launched, way back in 1977. The model features working telelever front suspension and swing-arm rear, functioning steering, BMW’s 2-cylinder boxer engine with shaft drive, custom BMW decals, bespoke tyres, and a mystery new piece unique to the 42063 set. It’s also the first LEGO set to feature the company’s new app-based 3D instructions.

LEGO’s Technic 42063 BMW Motorrad R 1200 GS Adventure set will launch in 2017, and we’re going to make a bold call and say that it looks like it could be the best motorcycle that LEGO have ever produced. We can’t wait!

    Nice Technic idea but why doesn’t it have a proper seat. Looks ‘almost’ finished because of a lack of a seat. That’s a shame.

      Definitely, For about 12-20 pieces more this would have a proper seat and also look a little bit more “filled” when viewed from the side. As an aside, I have already figured how to modify the back and side cases so they can all open on the side they should be opening – this could also have been done with not much more parts. Surprisingly cutting corners round again (remember the gears in order 1-3-2-4 of the Porsche?)

    I wonder if Lego have gone for shaft drive so that they don’t have their usual problem of getting the chain on the wrong side of the swing arm? 😛
