Citroën Built This SpaceTourer AWD Camper Just To Show Off New Bicycle

The funky Ami One Concept won’t be Citroën’s only design study at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.

The French automaker will also reveal the awkwardly-named SpaceTourer The Citroënist Concept which apparently was built just so Citroën’s new limited edition bicycle could make a grand entrance at the Geneva Motor Show. The bike is called “Rider the Citroënist by Martone” and inspires the design of the camper.

SpaceTourer The Citroënist Concept envisions a camping vehicle that wears the same colors as the Martone Cycling-developed bike: white (from the frame, saddle, and handlebars), black (tires), and red (chain). The concept vehicle features a special cabin layout developed by Pössl, the German RV specialist that builds the Campster camper based on the Citroën SpaceTourer.

The interior offers two berths, storage for two bikes, and a built-in connected office. To transport the two bicycles that will be presented at the Geneva Motor Show with the concept, the vehicle features a double storage rail on the floor located between the multimedia unit and the rear seats. A total of four people can travel and sleep in the camper, thanks to the additional berth housed under the pop-out roof.

Compared to regular SpaceTourer-based campers modified by Pössl, this study has a higher ground clearance and an all-wheel-drive system created by Automobiles Dangel. Its go-anywhere capabilities are enhanced by the BlueHDi 150 S&S BVM6 engine.

As for the limited edition bicycle, it’s designed for everyday rides and leisure activities. Made of a steel and aluminum alloy, it weighs in at 12 kilograms (26.5 lbs). The black wheels measure 700 mm (27.5 in) x 32 (1.2 in) mm and feature stainless steel hubs and puncture-resistant black tires.

It also comes with a manual three-speed gear system manufactured by Sturmey-Archer. Priced at €950 (about $1,080), it’s available in two sizes (52 cm and 56 cm), each featuring the Citroënist logo on the saddle and crossbar, as well as the Citroën Origins logo on the handlebars.
