BMW Lac Rose concept – A sign of things to come?
Keep your adventure bike running in the toughest conditions with Motul engine oil. AVAILABLE AT Randburg Midas
A very strong rumor suggests BMW intends to introduce at least three new models as part of the R nineT family. BMW introduced the Scrambler member of this family at the Wheels & Waves Festival, and this year the Lac Rose concept made its debut at the same event.
Lac Rose is the French name of the rose-colored Retba Salt Lake where the original route of the Paris-Dakar Rally ended. In the mid 80s, BMW factory bikes won the race 3 years in a row, with the great Gaston Rahier taking the third win in 1985.
The Lac Rose concept just might be similar to a future BMW R nineT-based production bike, along with a stripped down version of the BMW R nineT and a sport bike version, according to rumor. Apparently, sales of the R nineT have been good enough for BMW to consider the expansion of production models. Shared parts could make development of each model relatively inexpensive.
