Here's the world’s first pictures of BMW’s prototype 450cc enduro bike.

The next-generation beemer was spotted undergoing final tests as part of the Uelsen Enduro race in Germany at the weekend.

The bike was not badged in corporate colours but was entered in the event under the banner of the BMW AG Motorrad team.

What’s more, the bike was being ridden by former pro Enduro rider Sascha Eckert – a development rider and ex-racer. Eckert is being used by the factory to help develop its off-road project in the same way as GP rider Jeremy McWilliams was helping the superbike effort.

For all the information on the project and when we can see the bike in the flesh to buy, see  Motor Cycle News on March 7.
