Now this is one cool BMW!
« on: June 23, 2010, 09:54:41 am »
Saw this on MCN!

‘Vintage’ BMW has 110bhp!



Take a second glance – this ‘vintage’ BMW is actually nothing of the sort.

Based around the modern powertrain from the BMW R1200GS, it’s a one-off special built by one of France’s leading BMW dealers Panda Moto (hence the Panda in the pictures), south of Paris.   

Panda Moto boss, Jean-Luc Dupont, had the idea to build the bike as a rolling, usable homage to the German firm’s original boxer twin, the 1923 R32.

It’s impressively done, too. The name, meanwhile – R1232 – comes from a combination of R1200 and R32. 
Don't look back, that's not where you're going.

Cool looking BM but 110 bhp and no front brakes will make for a very good adrenalin rush.

Onthou jy nie hoe jy altyd jou tekkie teen die vurk op die voorwiel laat skuur het om te stop met jou bmx nie?

Same story.

R1232 looks nicely done though.
