    I see no exhaust, so I guess it's an electric bike... The BMW Group's futurists see a world in which self-driving cars are the norm, but the Motorrad concept keeps the rider in control. To help in this regard, special rider's gear has been designed to form a Digital Companion that supports the rider with situational information when required.

    That is intriguing. Beautiful design, but it needs at least the option for a real fairing to increase aerodynamic efficiency and rider comfort. The clothes the model is wearing are of course for effect, they are not functional since those flaps on the shoulders will catch air.

    I really like the look of that bike.

    How many riders have just forgot to put their foot down and fell off a bike? I know I have :) It's what happens when you get so comfortable riding that that natural reaction had a brain fart :) Looks like a cool bike!
