BMW 42063 Dakar Race Bike
First, thanks to LEGO and BMW giving me a great basis for developing this bike.
As always with race bikes, this is not only a modified version, it’s definitely a complete new bike.
And of course: You cannot buy this bike, it’s a race bike.
There is only one bike produced, especially for me to win the Dakar :-)
Let’s go to the key facts:
Motor: Four cylinder 180 degree V
New cylinder head
Two studs narrower
Frame: New geometry
Reduced distance between the undersides of motor to the upside of the tank
Massive improved ground clearance
More travel: 4.5 studs
Better spring angle, smoother
Travel improved to 3 studs!
New (worldwide first) spring linkage gives fantastic bike control
Exhaust: Complete new
Dual pipe, fixed (of course) with the frame (not with the swing arm)
Quad outlets with yellow cross axle fire coming out ;-)
Handlebar: Grip, position and new mounting
Tank: Two additional rear side tanks positioned near the centre of gravity
Optics: Shorter rear with red (not white – what’s up with you LEGO?) taillights
Weight: Reduction through elimination of some parts
Some other minor changes…
So come on!
Show me what you can offer to beat me!
But I must say:
On the Dakar 2017 you will definitely eat my dust!
And this is the last time you will see this bike (except the red tail lights) J
Have fun racing!
Thanks for watching!
(FLOGO: happy like 25 years ago when he drove his first dirt bike…)
