The R120 G/S kit for the BMW R1200GS looks fabulous...

In his late-40s, Fabio Marcaccini lives in the hills of Riccione, in Italy, and has been racing and rallying motorcycles for more than the last three decades. He’s also participated in five Paris-Dakar rallies (from 1987-1992), has been an official test rider for Bimota and has ridden motorcycles pretty much all over the world.

Now that he’s getting old a bit older, Fabio spends more time in his workshop and is now an industrial product designer with a passion for designing… you guessed it, motorcycles. Well, not entire bikes perhaps, but he builds kits that allow individual buyers to customize their machines the way they want.

One of his designs is the R120 G/S kit, which is compatible with all 2004-2012 models of the BMW R1200GS. Built with high-quality materials, the kit results in a saving of more than six kilos over the original bike and, in our opinion, looks absolutely fabulous – especially the white one with blue/red stripes and orange-brown seat. Extensive customization options are available though base price is 3,920 euros.

For more details on pricing, availability and how to order the R120 G/S kit for yourself, visit their official website
