Wunderlich has developed a concept 2WD mechanism for the BMW GS…
German BMW specialist Wunderlich has developed the first ever BMW R 1200 GS LC with an additional front-wheel drive.
For additional efficiency, the energy produced while braking is used to recharge the battery.
The front-wheel operation is adjustable during operation and can be used entirely on its own. It will drive the bike at up to 20 kilometres per hour (12.5 mph), using battery power when the bike’s engine is turned off.
It can also be used for manoeuvring assistance, (parking the 238 kg machine on slopes, pushing the bike up ramps, etc) and even provides a reverse function at three kilometres per hour.
