Written by Tejen Dhankhar

BMW Motorrad is very happy with how the R nineT motorcycle is performing in the market and is keen on expanding its product range on similar lines. The German bike manufacturer has now revealed a new concept motorcycle dubbed as Lac Rose or you could also call it the R nineT GS. The bike is built around iconic designs of dirt bikes from 1980’s.


The donor bike is the latest R nineT, but the bike gets a mix of the 1985 R 80 GS adventure motorcycle which was also on production back then.


The new concept motorcycle is also a way of celebrating the brands motorsport success in Paris Dakar rally in 1981 & 1983.


Mechanically, this concept was sporting a 1,170cc, boxer twin cylinder engine from the R nineT which produces 110 BHP @ 7,550 RPM and 119 Nm @ 6,000 RPM.

Changes on this bike include new paint scheme, old school body panels such as the side mounted race plate, engine fins, etc.


There’s also a GS series inspired helmet and jacket to complement this concept.
