Anyone who likes to take their motorcycle off the tarmac now and again will appreciate the benefits of a large 21-inch front wheel. Wunderlich, the No. 1 worldwide for high quality BMW motorcycle accessories now offers a corresponding conversion kit for the R nineT Scrambler and Urban G/S in their product range.
The larger wheel diameter increases stability and significantly improves handling on rough terrain by ironing out more of the bumps. This is especially true for sandy or muddy surfaces, however it also improves the ride on poor quality tarmac roads. Incidentally, with their 21“ front wheel conversion, the accessories specialists from Sinzig in Germany have also managed to give the Urban G/S and Scrambler the harmonious and distinctive appearance of an enduro motorcycle. When designing the suspension, Wunderlich has taken care to ensure that the off-road benefits do not come at the cost of the bike‘s riding dynamics on the road.
The 21-inch aluminium cross-spoke wheel allows the use of tubeless 90/90-21“ tyres. It features a black anodised finish and VA spokes, and matches the rear wheel perfectly thanks to the identical hub. The Wunderlich front-wheel conversion also includes a specially developed ABS rim, which has been adapted to work with the BMW ABS system, as well as a short, beautiful front mudguard made from brushed aluminium with a practical angled valve. The wheel comes with an installation kit, a clear installation guide and a TÜV certificate for easy registration. A prerequisite for the 21“ front wheel conversion is a 50 mm higher suspension, which Wunderlich can provide, as this creates the necessary space for the wheel.
Both the front-wheel conversion and the higher suspension are 100% Made in Germany and covered by Wunderlich‘s five-year warranty. The 21“ front wheel conversion costs EUR 1,359, the higher suspension kit is available from EUR 2,049.
