The Making of a Tank Bag

Not off the peg The tank bags from Wunderlich are tailor-made for every make of motorcycle. Lots of time, expense and experience has gone into their development. When managing director Erich Wunderlich, works manager Peter Hoppe and product supervisor Felix Abel put their heads together, their creativity knows no bounds. They mull over ideas, make sketches and draft designs before ripping them up, getting into loud arguments and starting the creative process anew. The best example of this is the brand-new tank bag for the BMW F 800 GS. Equipped with years of experience in creating of new luggage systems, these three ingenious minds spent untold hours in Wunderlich's own R & D department as well as on the bike itself in order to find the optimal product for their customers' fuel tanks. The first rounds of discussion resulted in a comprehensive catalog, which contained in black and white all the innovative drafts, ideas and requirements – along with the first sketches and detailed representations of the new tank bag. This collection of ideas then went with the corresponding bike to the German partner company which the Sinzig accessory specialists use for the production of their luggage solutions. There the F 800 GS was given a custom fit-out as the very first sample, the only one of its kind. "This sample is just the basis for further discussion and analysis," explains product supervisor Abel, "We subject it to close scrutiny and always find potential for further improvements. These might, for [...]

LIQUI MOLY Oils: The best for your BMW Motorcycle

LIQUI MOLY was founded in 1957 in Ulm, Germany, on the shores of the Danube. The company began out of a patent that was granted for the production of molybdenum disulfide, a lubricant with extremely low friction and that is unaffected by acids and oxygen. Their first marketed product was an additive using liquefied molybdenum disulfide and was used to give the company its name. More than five decades later, LIQUI MOLY is now the number one leading brand of oil in Germany and it is also our preferred motor oil at Wunderlich. We can assure you that LIQUI MOLY products are the finest available anywhere in the world. The research and testing that goes into each and every LIQUI MOLY product is unparalleled. LIQUI MOLY motor oils and engine additives are engineered for high performance and critical applications to retain their lubricity even in cases of almost complete oil loss. We offer nearly fifty different LIQUI MOLY products and accessories across a wide range to keep your motorcycle running at its best.

Wunderlich Scrambler: “Racing is life…!”

BMW R 1200 GS LC mutates into a radical Wunderlich-Scrambler With our "Speed Cruiser" based on the HP2 Sport and our naked bike "Piranha," created from an S 1000 RR, we have already demonstrated our abilities to create brutal transformations. Both motorcycles are not only visually striking, they also set new standards in terms of performance and handling. Our new Scrambler demonstrates that our radical concepts are capable of reaching an even higher level of intensity. In cooperation with our partner, the motorcycle specialist from Koblenz, Sport-Evolution, we took a brand new water cooled GS, just after its introduction and disassembled it down to the last bolt and then built up a formidable, dyed-in-the-wool Scrambler. No stone was left unturned: The telelever was sacrificed and replaced by a custom built fork assembly. New camshafts, lighter connecting rods, forged pistons and optimized cylinder heads now carry our their work in a high performance engine. The wiring harness was completely replaced and a more aggressive fuel injection technology installed. The frame, suspension, tank, wheels, seat and so much more was replaced that it is only mentioned here as a side note.. The Scrambler passed all testing on the Sport Evolution Dynamometer with flying colors and we were genuinely blown away with the results. Prior to commencing work, the GS put out a comparatively modest 110 horsepower at the rear wheel.The end result after all of the modifications were complete was a staggering 143 horsepower at the rear wheel—which equates to 152 HP [...]
