The brightly colored BMWs that raced across the Paris-Dakar Rally are among some of the most recognized and beloved motorcycles in the company's history. Motorrad is paying tribute to those bikes with the Lac Rose concept that reimagines their R nineT bike with a design that is inspired by the 1985 victor that race the rally in 1985.

Taking the styling of the original G/S, the bike features a number of off-road upgrades such as a windshield and high mudguard, a larger fuel tank, rally-style bench seat, protective headlamp grille, oil cooler protector, and much more. And how can you miss that incredible Signal Red on Alpine White paint scheme. It just doesn't get much more perfect than that.
