A few days ago at the Italian Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este BMW revealed their newest bike- an all-electric two-wheeler, a zero-emissions urban vehicle. The “Concept Link” bike is a mixture of a motorcycle and a scooter and besides for riding, it’s all about connectivity.
Concept Link will be able to sync with its rider’s calendar, plan routes and find the nearest destination. The bike has clean lines and a sleek two-color design. The side panels aren’t completely covered so you can see some part of its elements such as drive unit and cooling ribs.
More features include a low-slung power pack, an adjustable seat and a hidden compartment for luggage. The storage compartment, along with some other parts will react to the motion-control jacket the rider is wearing so just by the movement of the arm it can be opened.
As for the color, the grey titanium and black are contrasted with a bright orange color. The distinctive design meets the needs and technical features of today’s users. The inspiration for this bike came from the last year’s reveal of the futuristic Motorrad Vision Next 100. [via]
