BMW Group has a separate department that is only responsible for developing innovative concepts for the future. The Vision Next 100 includes a futuristic Rolls Royce, Mini and others. But we will talk about the most interesting one of the lot. BMW Motorrad Vision Next concept is a sneak peek into what motorcycling would look like in the future, the next 100 years.
BMW says there will be no need for a helmet on this motorcycle, and niether will the rider have to be clad in safety gear from top to bottom. The bike will balance itself while in motion and while stationary.
Another feature that sets it apart is that it will not come with an instrument cluster we see on regular motorcycle. The riders will instead wear a pair of smart goggles which would display all the details. Futuristic enough!
The Vision Next 100 still captures elements from the BMW Motorrad timeline: black triangular frame, white lines, classical opposed-twin engine type. In the side-on view, the vision vehicle looks naked. Accordingly, ergonomics and seat position are set up like on a roadster.
The exterior shape of the opposed-twin engine changes depending on the riding situation. When at a standstill, it remains tight. As soon as you begin riding, the engine block protrudes out of the sides, which optimises the aerodynamics and the motorcycle's weather protection.
With a motorcycle that would never tumble over, the ambitious German brand says riders with any level of skills will be able to ride this motorcycle.
