How the R1200GS should look

Published: 28 April 2009

US aftermarket parts-supplier Andrew Serbinski loves the ride but hates the look of his R1200GS so much he’s completely redesigned it. And in developing the new bodywork he's pioneering a new way of producing parts in a process he likens to simply 'printing them out'.

The R1200GSM reduces the parts-count and 'visual clutter' of the popular adventure bike, which Serbinsky feels betrays the actual feel of riding the bike. "These bikes offer a promise of being able to go from the tip of Scotland to end of Africa, but few people actually do it. It rides like a big sports bike with a great view so we set out to make it look that way."

The concept took two years to make a reality, but uses parts 'printed' directly from a 3D design, without the need for special tools or moulds to be fabricated.
Serbinski says that if a more sportily-bodyworked GS was offered alongside the existing style BMW would attract customers put-off by the current bikes' soft-roader styling.

There are no plans to produce the GSM, but you can buy the cylinder guards, windscreen, and ‘MudSling’ fenders from www.machineartmoto.com

What do you think of the Serbinski's design?
