The R1200GS BMW motorbike was already a well-regarded offering in motorbike enthusiast circles, but it has now been taken to the next level thanks to the aftermarket tinkering of Germany company Wunderlich.

This concept bike features an electric hub motor situated in the front wheel, making for a simple way to add electric two-wheel drive and reverse gear to a regular BMW motorbike.

Wunderlich, whose name translates to 'whimsical', has made a name for itself crafting together extraordinary concept bikes to show off its vast collection of motorbike parts, and this R1200GS BMW motorbike modification is but the latest example of how Wunderlich's simple but radical design and engineering philosophy can be used to make motorbikes even better than they already were.
