Yesterday, we featured the story behind the creation of LEGO’s first ever partnership with motorcycle maker, BMW Motorrad to come up with the impressive 2-in-1 LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS Adventure (42063). The Technic set is a faithful rendition of the popular BMW motorcycle that was revealed last year, given with a futuristic twist. The set itself can be rebuilt into a Hover Ride, which was later used by BMW Motorrad engineers to replicate a life-sized concept hover vehicle. I have to admit that at first, the news fell off from my radar when the LEGO set was revealed last November. Not until I heard of the unique story behind its creation, and the collaboration needed to pull it through, that I started to follow its journey.
To make sure that they’ll be able to convey the joy and subtle excitement of the LEGO Technic team in creating the 42063, LEGO has uploaded a video that shows the creative genius of both the LEGO Technic and BMW Motorrad designers.
