Concept Link design study, unveiled last week in Lake Como, brings together digital connectivity and the modern demands of urban mobility, but his time mounted on two wheels.
"The BMW Motorrad Concept Link demonstrates a new understanding of urban mobility. It links the digital world with the analogue world and places the rider's mobility requirements in the foreground," stated Edgar Heinrich, Head of Design BMW Motorrad. Although at the moment, the BMW Motorrad Concept Link is still a prototype, it clearly shows the future path for BMW Motorrad.
Because people are used to staying connected at all times, especially during their time in the city, Concept Link strives to offer the same experience while driving, so you don't miss the things you'd normally do while exploring the city. Even the rider's clothing is intelligently connected with the vehicle that promises pure riding pleasure, connectivity between humans and their vehicles, convenience and safety.
Concept Link's speed, navigation and battery status are displayed in the windscreen, while a large panel with touch function offers all information on infotainment, connectivity and route planning at the ready. The sleek vehicle had the iconic rear lights integrated into the rear side panels in the form of two C-shaped light elements. A flat energy storage device can be found in the underbody.
To customize the riding experience, the rider can use individually assignable shortcut keys on the handlebars with touch function. The rider can also personalize the seat bench, coloured side panels and different windshields to express one's own individual personality.
Well, how about that for a zero-emissions city ride?
