In 1976, the R100RS became the first mass-produced motorcycle in the world to come with a full fairing developed in a wind tunnel (the same one used by NATO to develop the Tornado fighter-bomber.) The RS established the sports touring segment, which BMW has dominated ever since, yet we haven’t had a Boxer RS in the line-up since the short-lived R1150RS a decade ago. Well, with the new R1200RS, BMW restores this tradition with a sports tourer powered by the latest liquid cooled flat-twin boxer engine with more horsepower than any previous Boxer.

BMW R NineT Legend GS is the name of this bike built by Luismoto. As a starting point, a BMW R NineT Scrambler was used to create a new bodywork and finally painted with livery that reminds the “Legendary” BMW R100GS 90 years and could in fact be the evolution of the model if BMW over the years Had not given the GS name to a completely different bike.
