BMW'S MOTORRAD VISION NEXT 100 CONCEPT

A 'flexframe' extends from the front to the rear wheel, which means means the bike can be steered without the various joints found on today's motorcycles.
Turning the handlebar adjusts the entire frame, changing the direction of the bike.
The bike also rights itself while even stationary, remaining upright when the rider has dismounted.

The rider a can interact with the bike through a pair of data glasses, that cover the wearer's entire field of vision.

Despite its contemporary features the bike will not be fully autonomous, the company said.
'Its self-balancing system will help protect the rider at any time,' said Edgar Heinrich, the design director of BMW's motorcycle division.

'Any late reaction from the driver will trigger and the vehicle will balance out.'
'In the future, motorcycle riders will be able to enjoy riding without protective gear.'
According to BMW, the 'flexframe' extends from the front to the rear wheel of the BMW Motorrad Vision Next 100.

This means the bike can be steered without the various joints found on today's motorcycles.

Turning the handlebar adjusts the entire frame, changing the direction of the bike.
The bike also rights itself while even stationary, remaining upright when the rider has dismounted.

The balancing systems will ensure a particularly agile and dynamic riding experience with even lighter handling.

'Motorcycling is about escaping from the everyday: the moment you straddle your bike, you are absolutely free. Your bike is The Great Escape,' said Mr Heinrich.

A 'Digital Companion' provides the situational information and active support the rider needs, while remaining in the background.

The system is constantly active, but remains silent until required to issue an alert via the user interface or provide active assistance.
