The BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100 anticipates motorcycling in the future.
Glasses instead of a helmet, light clothing, full balance without a stand: just three of a great many aspects which could become standard in motorcycling and give that feeling of freedom a new dimension in an increasingly digitalised world. And the best thing about it: this vision vehicle is already here.
Meant to embody the motorcycle of the far off future, the BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100 is about as technologically exotic as you’ll see a concept bike get. Its black frame triangle is meant to reference the company’s first bike, but is covered in matte black textile and is actually designed to flex, eliminating the normal joints of a traditional bike and adjusting the steering strength as needed. It’s powered by a zero-emissions drive unit, can balance itself, includes a data visor that makes a normal dashboard unnecessary, and is so safe, it would make helmets entirely optional.
