AC Schnitzer


AC Schnitzer is better known in the automotive world for making fine BMW parts and automobiles, but the little German tuning shop also tries its hand at motorcycles from time to time. Unfortunately the company’s prowess at making four-wheeled BMW’s look good and run fast does not translate over well to its two-wheel endeavors. A great example of this is the disappointment we had with the recently released 2010 AC Schnitzer BWM S1000RR, which leaves us here at A&R wanting more schnitzel and less Schnitzer in our Bavarian bikes.

Tuner house AC Schnitzer is known well for its work on BMW automobiles, making the Ultimate Driving Machine just that much more…well, ultimate. Every now and then though, AC gets their hands on a BMW motorcycle, usually with hit or miss results. This time getting the AC treatment is the BMW F800, the black sheep of the ugly ducklings. While we like where AC Schnitzer is going with this look, we still can’t fathom why a tuning brand has yet to do really any tuning on their motorcycle works bikes. Pictures and more after the jump.
