BMW Hoverbike LEGO Review

BMW Hoverbike LEGO Review

This week we're taking a peek at a LEGO motorcycle [BMW R 1200 GS Adventure] that can be re-built as a hoverbike. It's completely batty, to be sure - but the appeal in having a BMW-branded hoverbike was more than I could handle. I had to built it - and built it I did. It took a few hours (spread out over a few days, about an hour off and on each day), and was quite enjoyable to see unfold. The build you're seeing here photographed by SlashGear is the Hoverbike part of this equation.

BMW, LEGO made a mini 1200 GS that turns into a hover bike

LEGO blocks are the epitome of reusability. They can be used to form almost any object imaginable and then torn apart to be used to build a different object. But some LEGO blocks are made for specific designs and purposes to recreate a very specific thing, like a car or motorbike model. Can these blocks still be reused to create something else? The creative minds at BMW Motorrad and LEGO Technic think so. And to prove it, they took the LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS Adventure and turned it into the LEGO Technic Hover Bike.
