From a concept to the coast road, BMW Motorrad AG and Roland Sands Design have created a truly magnificent touring bike like never before in the form of the Concept 101. With no detail overlooked, the 101 has an all-round encapsulating design that would make anyone sitting atop the saddle look mighty cool.
This BMW bike has a body, giving the appearance that looks as though the wind has cut away all along it – leaving the surface with an edgy, unorthodox look. With a great mix of complementary material choices here; walnut veneers, carbon fiber, leather, brushed and anodized aluminum – could BMW have started a new design language for the touring bike?
One thing is for sure, this bike has character. The headlights are hypnotic pulling you straight in – from there, it’s hard to pull yourself away from the thoughtful additions up and down this two-wheel dream. Undoubtedly, the Concept 101 will have people stop in their tracks and leave them with no other choice but to gaze and daydream in jealousy.
