At this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, BMW’s two-wheel division, BMW Motorrad, also has something to show off and it is a scooter-like electric two-wheeler called BMW Motorrad Concept Link Urban Mobility. It is, well, how do I say? Futuristic? I mean, it is nothing like somewhat Tron-ish BMW Vision Next 100, it is futuristic enough – lend to it by angular lines, electric drive, well connected, a windscreen that doubles as a display, and touch functionalities. Continue reading Concept Link Is A BMW Motorrad Vision Next 100-inspired, Ermmm, Scooter?
Oh, wow. This came as a surprise to us. You know that beautiful, first-ever BMW Motorrad and LEGO Technic collaboration, the LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS Adventure we featured last year? Well, the thing is, we did not realized it was a 2-in-1 kit, something which is typical of LEGO Technic sets. Interestingly, the alternative model included in the kit was fictional concept called Hover Ride. Hover Ride is exactly what it sounds like; a R 1200 GS Adventure without wheels, AKA a bike that hovers, AKA a vehicle that will make futurists drool all over.

LEGO motorcycle set is rare. Even more rare is an official collaboration between a bike maker and the world famous toy maker, but here it is, the LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS Adventure – the first ever LEGO Technic model made with involvement from a motorcycle maker and in this case, it is, of course, BMW Motorrad. This detailed model, which boasts 603 pieces, is the result of a close collaboration between the Danish toy maker and BMW Motorrad. It features the familiar R 1200 GS lines, known as the flyline, along with steerable handlebars, adjustable windshield, authentic replica of BMW Telelever front wheel suspension, shaft drive, black spoke wheels with knobby tires, and a moving 2-cylinder boxer engine packed into its LEGO Technic space frame.

You know the defining futuristic motorbike from the movie Tron? Well, the BMW HP4 RACE Advanced Prototype Motorcycle is clearly not that, but it is certainly futuristic in a very ‘earthly manner’, or should we say, very sporty – thanks to the use of full carbon fiber main frame and carbon fiber wheels to boot. This beautiful two-wheeler will be hand crafted in limited numbers and slated to the hit the market sometime in second half of 2017.

Be futuristics, BMW Vision Next 100 Motorcycle unveiled earlier today at the “Iconic Impulses. The BMW Group Future Experience” exhibition in L.A. may get you all aroused. We have seen our fair share of futuristic bikes, but this one here rewrites everything that have read and seen about bike of the future. And yes, it still has wheels though, unfortunately. Hoverbike is way further than BMW’s vision of future bike. Aesthetically, the BMW Vision Next 100 Motorcycle is probably the first bike worthy of being called exotic, because it is. I mean, just look at the form. Continue reading BMW Vision Next 100 Motorcycle Is An Absolute Porn For Futurists
Well, what do you know? BMW Motorrad has extended its reach beyond motorcycles and lifestyle accessories, it has, over this weekend, announced it is leaping into a path never traveled by any motorcycle maker or even by any automaker; it is pursuing the fictional path with a planned graphic novel. Entitled Riders in the Storm, the comic is currently in the works and is due to be released this October. The development was presented at Comic Con Germany in Stuttgart on 25 and 26 June, 2016. For the uninitiated, graphic novel is essentially a fancier name for the typical run-of-the-mill, super thin variety, but with a lot meat of course. Continue reading This is Riders in the Storm, BMW Motorrad’s First Graphic Novel
BMW Motorcycles is taking its two new safety concepts to CES this year. The first is laser light, adapted for motorcycles and a helmet with a head-up display. The former found its way into the BMW K 1600 GTL concept motorcycle and is a derivation of the design from the automotive division. While laser light can be found on the company’s 7 Series and i8, it is the first time laser technology has been applied to the company’s two wheelers. Laser headlamps touts precise, bright and pure-white light, and has a pretty amazing high-beam throw of up to 600 meters, which is double than that of conventional headlights. In addition, laser technology has a compact, robust and maintenance-free construction that affords a long service life.

You’d be hard-pressed to find any off-road motorcycle that speaks both style and luxury. Traditionally, ‘scramblers’, as they are commonly referred to, conjures up an image of KTM or Yamaha. You know, stuff like raised front fender, narrow and tall form, and raised exhausts. As you can see, in traditional sense, they hardly qualifies as stylish, much less luxury. But the BMW R nineT Scrambler is different. It is not the typical. It is muscular, much like its Roadster counterpart, but built slimmer. Though so, it does exhibit several requisite scrambler features, including raise twin exhaust, a longer suspension travel, a higher handlebar, a relax upright riding position and more importantly, it is setup for fun riding on winding country roads. Continue reading BMW R nineT Scrambler Goes Official, But You May Have Seen It Already
After proving itself that it can make good electric cars and also dabbled in electric scooter, BMW is ready to take the wholesome power of electric to sport bike, starting with the experimental vehicle eRR. As the lower cap on the model name suggests, eRR is the electric iteration of the Bavarian company’s super bike, the S 1000 RR. Technical details are still scarce at this point in time, but we do know that it has the design and chassis technology of the supersport motorcycle. eRR electric super bike was created as a project with the Technical University of Munich and it is BMW’s first foray into an all-electric drive supersport motorcycle. Continue reading This Is BMW’s First Foray Into Creating A Zero-Emission Super Bike
Surfing and motorcycle are two things that almost always never associated together. Mostly because you can’t really transport a surfboard on a two-wheeler, but that doesn’t stop the bike arm of German luxury car maker, BMW Motorrad from collaborating with artist Ornamental Conifer and surfboard shaper Mason Dyer of Dyer Brand to design the BMW Concept Path 22. BMW calls it a scrambler. We don’t quite see it as one, partly due to the fact that it is based on the BMW R nineT which is essentially a roadster, but the Concept Path 22 does bear a couple of scrambler features including studded tires and a raised exhaust.
