This BMW R 1300 GS converted to Supermotard is winning races and setting records

Let's face it, when we all think of a BMW R 1300 GS we directly associate it with traveling long routes anywhere on the planet in an efficient and safe way, as well as comfortable. However, there are others like Greg MansellGeneral Director of The Mansell Collection (a motorcycle dealership located in Jersey, one of the islands located off the French coast), who do not think the same.

Perhaps that is why this year he presented himself with a BMW R 1300GS prepared to the teeth to undertake the famous climb to Bouley Hill that takes place in the month of April, and try to beat the current record, set at 45.9 seconds. And he almost did it, since Mansell and his team were just 0.7 seconds behind it, established in 2010.

The BMW R 1300 GS puts aside its versatility and launches into devouring curves

In the video that we put right here above we can see how it is BMW R 1300GS It comes equipped with a series of components that almost turn it into a maxi-supermotard. In fact, Greg's riding style is similar to that of many riders trying to get the most out of a bike of this type.

It is not the first time we have seen one BMW R 1300GS proving that it is made for much more than traveling. Just a few days ago Toprak Razgatlioglu was having fun with a copy of the German road racer, getting the most out of it on a karting circuit.

As if this were not enough, we also have the BMW R 1300 GS from VTR Customs, the closest thing to a curve-eater, an incredible preparation, of the style that Greg Mansell uses in this test, which makes it clear to us as far as we can. come from setting out to create a true track apparatus.

To all of the above we must add the fact that brands such as BMW or Ducati already have their sports versions of the respective adventures that make up their range. Both the Ducati Multistrada V4 RS and the BMW M 1000
