BMW R1200R gets the Hornig treatment
The German special parts and accessories firm, Hornig, has released details of a 2006 R1200R scrambler project and it looks great.

The donor bike underwent a 45 hour, €6,500 overhaul, utilising parts available to buy from Hornig.
The most obvious change is the trimmed down rear frame and single seat conversion covered in striking, cognac-coloured leather for a sleek finish. This also meant rethinking the rear lights and indicators which have been customised to fit.
The whole back end has also been raised up using an adjustable paralever strut, revealing a rear hugger mudguard and custom number plate bracket.
At the front end, Hornig have slimmed down the mudguard and added a bespoke LED headlight assembly and mini indicators.
A short GPR exhaust was mounted on a special support which had to be manufactured as the original was removed as part of the frame modification. The manifold has been sprayed black to match the matte black finish on the tank which also sports the silver Hornig logo.
Knobbly tyres from Continental complete the scrambler credentials, and subtle finishing touches like wooden grips, hang-down mirrors, numerous scratch plates and crash bobbins give the bike a distinctive and classy feel.
All of the parts used to customise this R1200R can be bought from Hornig. Click here to visit their website.
