Every manufacturer two-wheeler or four-wheeler brings something unique to Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este. BMW Motorrad will also be bringing a motorcycle concept, which mixes past and future models.
Edgar Heinrich, Head of BMW Motorrad Design, expressed, "The Concept 101 opens up a new chapter in the history of our concept bikes. It is the BMW Motorrad interpretation of endless highways and the dream of freedom and independence - the perfect embodiment of American touring."
He further added, "Designing this big touring bike study was amazingly exciting for us because we haven't been involved with a motorcycle concept like this before. To me, the Concept 101 is the epitome of elegance, power and luxury on two wheels."
BMW Motorrad has revealed its Concept 101 as The Spirit Of The Open Road. It will be showcased to the general public at Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.
BMW Motorrad designers have provided Concept 101 with an American Bagger look. It looks futuristic, however, it also uses design elements from the German manufacturers glorious past.
It looks like nothing BMW has built before. We like Concept 101's side profile, which shows the length of this motorcycle. The designers have intentionally left the engine uncovered, it is the masterpiece of this motorcycle.
BMW Motorrad has integrated their brake lights into side bags of Concept 101. It looks stylish and sporty from the rear. The motorcycle looks like a real mil muncher and it will be an effortless experience.
Powering BMW's Concept 101 is their six cylinder 1,649cc engine. Performance is not the key focus of this touring motorcycle. Having a great time and an unforgettable riding experience is the main motive behind Concept 101.
Concept 101 was designed in cooperation with Roland Sands Design and BMW Motorrad design team. Roland Sands Design designed all of the unique parts by themselves. They have previously built several one of a kind machines for the German manufacturer. Their goal was to prepare a motorcycle that is precise and has loads of emotions attached to it.
