BMW Motorrad Presents The BMW Concept Roadster

bmw-concept-roadster-30

When the e-mail from BMW first hit my inbox, I thought BMW was releasing some pictures of a new concept convertible but when I opened up the images I was surprised to see there was no convertible at all. The BMW Concept Roadster is in fact a motorcycle, a mighty fine looking motorcycle at that. It is powered by a 2-cylinder boxer engine mounted upon a light tubular space frame. It generates 125 horsepower at 7750 rpm and delivers a maximum 92 lb-ft of torque at 6500 rpm sans chain, instead utilizing a drive shaft to the rear wheel.

“The BMW Concept Roadster is exciting to look and at least as exciting to ride,” says Ola Stenegard, Head of Vehicle Design BMW Motorrad, of the BMW Concept Roadster.

I definitely agree with Ola Stenegard. From the carbon fiber parts to the titanium single center exhaust and milled aluminum rear end the BMW Concept Roadster is certainly a looker. Powered by LED lighting behind a matted diffuser, the headlamp looks like something out of a science fiction movie. It probably doesn’t work very well in the real world but not to worry, it likely won’t ever hit the road and if it does would likely get a standard set of LED projectors.

Lot more images in the gallery including many pictures from the design process, check it out.
