The bike was launched in Santa Monica, California.
This 100 motorcycle is the latest incarnation of BMW’s Vision Next series, which celebrates 100 years of the German brand with forward-looking concept vehicles from Rolls-Royce, Mini, and BMW.
It has self-balancing systems to keep it upright both when standing
A pair of glasses also will be given that span the entire field of vision and are controlled by eye movements—correlate to return active feedback about road conditions
It’s meant to equal the driverless systems automakers also expect to be producing in cars by 2040 and beyond.
It also purports to use a novel matte black “flexframe” that’s nubile enough to allow the bike to turn without the joints found on today’s motorcycles.
The seat, upper frame cover, and wings are made of carbon, and the bike will run on a futuristic “non-gasoline power source.”
The area at the front will have virtually no buttons except a red rocker switch on the end of the right handlebar.
