KIT R120 G/S

The R120 G/S Kit marks a return to the origins of G/S without altering the comfort and the driveability of your motorbike in any way.
Fitting the R120 G/S Kit takes about 4 hours and will revolutionise the look of your GS, making it unique without changing the original parts at all.
In point of fact, you will have two motorcycles in your garage, while paying only one road tax and one insurance.
The Kit can be fitted on the R1200 GS model from 2008 onwards. For the same model, before 2008, we are currently preparing things.
The price lists will be online starting in June. It will be possible to choose the combinations and colours of the various parts by means of an easy-to-use configuration unit.
The complete kit, except for the front cowl, which will be available in three different models, will cost less than 4,000.00 euro.
The kit is reversible and does not require structural interventions on the original parts or on the electrical system.
Naturally, besides the basic R120 G/S kit, you will be able to complete the R120 with other accessories, including a frame with 50 magnum fork with plates and feet machined from solid.
We are also preparing a series of accessories in R120 style… you will be astonished!
The motorbike in R120 configuration can be equipped with original ADV aluminium panniers, with metal frame. Diversely, by purchasing our supports, you can mount the classic original Vario plastic panniers.
Accessorised with Thc or Karoo tyres, you will encounter no obstacles, not even off-road, also because the precious original parts will be safely stored in your garage.
The R120 G/S Kit will be on sale on www.unitgarage.com starting in June.






Cile

Outside the big cities, Chile is truly splendid. The Costera 1 is a cliff-top road directly overlooking the sea for 1000 km. A long trip, with huge waves crashing on rocky reefs, and no traffic.





No-one around

Further north, towards Peru, the desert starts again, looking like south Morocco, but here everyone’s disappeared, vast spaces totally uninhabited.





Travelling

Travelling with a vehicle following you, like the long-ways do, is a big help. You can fit off-road tyres when you need them, or travel without luggage but with spare parts available, or even venture out on more difficult routes whenever you want. If instead you’re all by yourself, you have to balance everything perfectly – your energies, the bike…





Sunsets

Sometimes the evening sunsets are breathtaking, and the sky is flushed with orange.
And if there’s no garage, you take your bike to your room.
