BMW and LEGO Hover Bike Concept
BMW and LEGO Technic joined together to create an alternative model using the same 603 LEGO pieces from the BMW R 1200 GS Adventure Model Kit, essentially ignoring the instructions for the mini motorcycle and going their own way. This futuristic hover bike is the result. After the team came up with the miniature version, the BMW Junior Company in Munich built a life-size version of the creation with real parts, including a few non-LEGO components, like a front-wheel rim modified to form a propeller.

LEGO BMW R 1200 GS Miniature
When that kit of parts from the hover bike mentioned earlier is actually put together the right way, here’s what you get: a miniature version of the BMW R 1200 GS Adventure. It’s the first ever LEGO technic model to be produced in cooperation with a motorcycle manufacturer, and the motored 2-cylinder boxer engine is actually set into motion as the motorcycle is moved.
