BMW Motorrad Concept Link
« on: May 27, 2017, 06:18:30 PM »

Someone is overthinking simplification. But wow... look what happens when they do.




"Last fall, BMW announced that an updated version of its C Evolution electric scooter will finally be offered in the US. Powered by a 94-Ah battery borrowed from its i3 city car, the C Evolution looks like a conventional electric scooter, barring its alien green midsection.

But this -- this is something different. Unveiled at this week's ultra-posh Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este at Lake Como, Italy, this is the BMW Motorrad Concept Link, and it looks like it zoomed right out of Tron. In fact, it bears close kinship to another electric two-wheeler from BMW, last year's Motorrad Vision Next 100, a self-balancing motorcycle concept.

The sleek e-scooter isn't just different stylistically, it's connected -- the Concept Link "knows what's in the rider's calendar and therefore his next destinations." This allows the two-wheeler to plan the quickest route (or the most scenic, if that's what's called for) and also select appropriate music for the occasion."

Oooo ... they created a 3d model for the showcase 0__0 ... that actually looks pretty bad ass vs the rendering looking images.

Not sure how practical it would be though and I would rather it be a functional concept :/

My first thought when I (recently) first saw it in real life was:
BMW: let's make a TRON bike ... but make it ugly


it's like their BMW 3i ... great idea but no one want's to be found dead anywhere near it.
