This motorcycle is based on a BMW R80 engine, but can also be fitted with a more modern boxer-engine of any cylinder-capacity. The front and rear shock-absorbers are from WP.
 
This is a touring-motorcycle with sporty riding properties. The tank incorporates an extra storage-compartment, which always comes in handy on touring trips. Naturally the entire motorcycle can be assembled to the customers wishes. For example a different engine, wheels, brakes and suspension can be installed. You can also have the original BMW wheels, front- and rear fork, brakes and footsteps installed.
