Going Solo with Wunderlich

by MotoGusto Editor

Inspired by BMW’s legendary Paris-Dakar bikes, the Wunderlich Solo Rider seat and rack combo instantly improves the comfort and handling of the R 1200 and 1250 GS – the perfect addition to solo overland and touring trips.

Solving multiple problems in one go, the kit combines the proven Aktivkomfort Solo Rider Seat with the robust Pillion Luggage Rack, which brings luggage closer to the bike’s centre of gravity, for better balance and handling. A win-win on and off road.

Aktivkomfort Solo Rider Seat

A vast improvement on the design of the original GS seat, the Wunderlich Aktivcomfort Seat features a distinctive concave profile and progressive two-layer construction, to relieve pressure on the coccyx and optimise weight distribution across the entire seat.

The tailored recess in the centre of the seat also helps improve positioning and support – especially when braking – for greater comfort and reduced fatigue during long rides.

It also features a sweat-reducing, grippy cover material, combined with pin-tucks in Alcantara, as well as a high-strength RoburC shell for durability.

Super quick and easy to fit, it directly replaces the original rider seat on the GS.

Pillion Luggage Rack

The Wunderlich Pillion Luggage Rack is made from sturdy, powder-coated, 4mm-thick aluminium and is designed to fit perfectly with both the Aktivcomfort and OE solo seats.

It features multiple lashing options on all four sides, as well as cut-outs in the middle, to allow secure carrying of all shapes and sizes of luggage.

The rack not only allows extra luggage to be accommodated, it also moves the weight  forwards, making the machine much easier to handle.

It fits to the original pillion seat mounting points, locks in place and can be removed in seconds, should the rider need to carry a passenger.

The Wunderlich Seat and Rack Combo retails at £469 including VAT, and fits the BMW R 1250 GS and Adventure, as well as the R 1200 GS LC (2013-on) and Adventure (2014-on).

It’s available from Wundelrich’s exclusive partner and the UK’s No.1 BMW motorcycle accessory specialist www.nippynormans.com
