Overall, I really like this Lego set. The feature that I like most is the gray opening top case and luggage panniers. It looks very realistic, like on real motorcycles.
Had to sell my BMW motorcycle... I loved it, but I can't ride anymore. This was a must have, obviously!! Great detail, very easy to put together, didn't take too long and looks great on my desk. Also I don't have to pay for insurance or new tires!
This is my first technics kit since I was a kid. Very impressed with the bike and the realistic BMW features like telelever suspension, shaft drive, boxer motor. Built it using the instruction app which was excellent to follow, the ability to turn the picture 360 degrees in any direction was a cool feature. The only issue was a few parts had incorrect colours shown.
Ride out and get one!
I really enjoyed these two builds. They were more complex, and took longer than I originally anticipated. Each build took me around two hours in front of mildly engaging television. To say nothing of another hour to dismantle it each time. This model has more sophisticated vehicle features than either of the other Technic models I have reviewed recently (Microlight Helicopter 42057 and the Telehandler 42061). Adding the Constructable K2SO figure to it enhanced my play experience, and both models were quite swooshable.
Overall 42063 BMW R 1200 GS Adventure is a set worth having. It's not completely accurate to the real bike aesthetically, but it's close enough and the Model Team-style detailing and plentiful decals make it one of coolest-looking motorcycles to come from LEGO in ages. It also performs well, with each of the working functions operating as they should (even if the suspension is too soft), and it's decent fun to build. Whilst 42063 doesn't really move Technic motorbikes forward in functional terms (although it is the first officially-licensed replica, and is all the better for it), it just does everything very well. A really good effort from LEGO and BMW.
This set is quite unique as there's a futuristic aspect to it, with the B-model Hoverbike. I posted about this a while ago. It was a bit of a strange press release, considering that the secret was definitely out, but it might bring the collectibility factor up a notch for a few people. It's the first time a motorbike manufacturer has co-developed a LEGO Technic set, too. There's a few nice parts inclusions, so I think this set is quite decent collectibility-wise.
The design and, importantly, the technical features of the real bike have been modelled accurately although, as pointed out above, there are a few cosmetic issues with the fairing and under-seat area but these are not sufficient to detract from what is otherwise an excellent model that would look fantastic sitting on anyone's desk or workshop as a display piece.
42063 BMW R 1200 GS is not just a LEGO set — it's a copy of the iconic bike embodied in LEGO pieces. Though not flawless, this is among the best you can create with the LEGO Technic system. Make sure you have some spare space on a shelf in your living room; this bike is much more charming and lovely than many other scaled copies of vehicles.
