German tuning company AC Schnitzer has developed an excellent reputation for producing some stunning aftermarket accessories for all manner of BMW motorcycles.

Most recently it has turned its attentions to that stunning workhorse the BMW F800GS. But rather than simply adding on choice bits and pieces, this time it has developed a complete new model: an F800GS supermoto.

Replacing the off-road biased skinny wheels with wide 17-inch wire-spoked wheels has allowed a greater choice of sports rubber to be used, and turned the F800GS into a razor sharp back roads scratcher while retaining the ABS system.

Add on one of the company's tried and trusted exhaust systems and race-spec air filter to up the rear wheel output, and bolt on a WP Suspension rear shock to run with WP modified front forks, and the end result is a bike even the Germans can have fun with.

Watch the video below to see the motorcycle close up and in action.
