BMW Creates Fantastic Flying Motorcycle Concept Inspired By Lego Model

BMW Motorrad recently teamed up with the might of Lego to create an accurate model of the popular BMW R 1200 GS Adventure motorcycle.

That Lego model launched on January 1, 2017 and has the ability to transform into a ‘flying motorcycle’ free of any wheels and with a cutting-edge design. Despite being far from reality, BMW has decided to create a life-sized version of the flying motorcycle, dubbing it the Hover Ride Design Concept.

BMW’s Junior Company, an innovative training unit for BMW’s trainees, was tasked with creating the Hover Ride Design Concept and managed to use production parts from the 1200 GS Adventure to bring the Lego creation to life. Among the unique components of the innovative flying motorcycle is a propeller that sits in place of the front wheels. There’s also two prominent fins that stretch down off the motorcycle’s fender flairs.

The BMW Hover Ride Design Concept is currently on display at LEGO World in Copenhagen.

    Too cool for school.

    This is why BMW interiors have been the same for years! Why design a better interior when you can play with Legos?

      Me, but there are many other flying bikes in sci-fi

  • Ary Wisesa

    Wow! That’s really nice. Kudos for those juniors. If those executives at BMW design center approved this, for sure it’s really something good. Because they really know one thing or two about design. I like it when young talents not afraid to come up with their ideas. It’s a learning process for them. And this concept shows that they really have special talents. Good job! 😊

    Uh, btw, BMW i8 had been featured in Mission Impossible movie. I think this concept won’t be out of place if it’s given a role in next MI movie or perhaps Jupiter Ascending sequel, or even Guardian of Galaxy Sequel.

    What technology is used for anti-gravity? I thought so.

  • Jorge Teixeira

    Looks great, the 10-year old inside me wants one badly! Having said that… shock absorbers in a hoverbike? Really?

    • Six_Tymes

      HA! good obvious catch on the shocks.

    • Auf Wiedersehen

      I came to ask the exact same question. Why shocks on a flying bike?
