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.
Perhaps, unlike me, you already know about Hover Ride, but what you may not know is, BMW Junior Company has created a life-size reproduction of the Hover Ride and boy, does it look stupendously fabulous! Seriously, I can’t imagine folks who love all manners of vehicle, particularly futuristic concepts, will not go bonkers over this fictional motorbike of the future. Unfortunately, hovering bike this sleek is yet to be a reality, but hey, at least there’s a life-size, real-life replica we can fantasize about. Keep going to catch a few more sweet, sweet look.
