The BMW Motorrad Concept Lac Rose is an incredibly high-tech rally motorbike that manages to embrace the latest and greatest competitive rally biking technologies and engineering features whilst also paying tribute to the spirit of vintage rally biking in the early 1980s.

BMW won back-to-back Dakar rallies in the early 1980s thanks to its R80G/S adventure bike, glimpses of which can be spotted in the German automaker's newest rally motorbike. This new motorbike comes fitted with a wide variety of key features including an oil cooler protector, over-sized tank, mudguard and windshield, crucial for the rigors of rally motorbike racing, with improved horsepower and balance.

The BMW Motorrad Concept Lac Rose is currently a concept, and one that continues to burnish BMW's reputation as a leading manufacturer of competitive rally motorbikes.
