Super Hero Suit, self-balancing, Visor instead of helmet, crash proof, futuristic and environment-friendly, that's the new concept of the BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100. Definitely, this will be the next hype in the motorcycle world.

The BMW Group created the concept of BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100 to provide riders unlimited freedom on the road. Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design quoted, "The BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100 is the essence of motorcycling and a symbol of the ultimate riding experience of the future."

As an electric-powered motorcycle and a body crafted with flexible carbon fiber shells offering zero carbon emissions, this bike will not post any dangers to our environment.

The flexframe design of the Motorrad VISION NEXT 100 body will provide ease of steering for the riders. With the help of the flexframe technology, steering in different directions will no longer be a danger. The entire frame will adjust by simply controlling the handle bar.

Helmets are no longer needed when using this bike. BMW's Self-balancing System will do all the work. The active assistance system will maintain the motorcycle's balance on the road or when stationary.

In addition to the Motorrad VISION NEXT 100 concept, cutting-edge tires will be introduced. You will no longer have to change your tires depending on the type of terrain and changes in weather. The tires' tread will automatically adjust as the weather and road surfaces change.

In line with the concept of the Motorrad VISION NEXT 100, a high-tech Visor will also be developed. These are wearable data glasses that will provide relevant information to riders while on the road.

The Rider's Gear. An intelligent and multifunctional suit that will provide navigation assistance and protect each rider from road hazards.

The Engine. While the Motorrad VISION NEXT 100's engine features are based on a futuristic concept, the engine's design resembles the traditional BMW boxer engine. According to The Verge, BMW gives honor to the R32, its first motorcycle, thus, creating a triangular design for its power unit.
