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.

It looks like BMW is set to launch a supermoto version of the bullet-proof F800R paralell twin later this year.  The machine, which was inspired by BMW’s stunt world champion Christian Pfeiffer, gains a host of goodies over the F800R, including long travel suspension, revised gearing and the obligatory BMW racepaint colour scheme. No word on price, but were expecting the bike to weigh in near the $12,000 mark.
