BMW K1200S EML Speed 2000

 

 

 

This very interesting looking BMW sidecar rig comes from Motomag, who apparently got to ride the thing recently. Called the EML Speed 2000, the three-wheeler is fitted with the BMW K1200S’s liquid-cooled, 16-valve, DOHC four-cylinder engine, which has been limited to 106 horsepower and 130Nm of torque. The gearbox is the standard six-speed unit.

According to Motomag, the BMW engine feels strong on expressways despite the excess weight of the sidecar rig (the whole things weighs 458kg dry). The engine never seems to lack flexibility or torque and the gearbox is always quick and precise. The suspension on the other hand is a bit soft, and the trike wallows a fair bit, especially at higher speeds. At least the brakes work very well…

Getting in and out of the EML Speed 2000 is easy, and the vehicle is comfortable as a large-ish tourer. The fit and finish is top-notch and apart from the suspension, which spoils the whole experience a bit, this is one trike that’s great fun to ride. But yes, at around 32,000 euros, it’s also very expensive…
