BMW Vision Motorcycle Expected This Fall

BMW Group is said to reveal a concept motorcycle this autumn, one of the four Vision machines that will mark the company's 100th anniversary. No details have been confirmed at the time of writing, but it looks like each of the four brands under the BMW Group umbrella will have their own mind-blowing concept anniversary models.

The first in this run is the BMW Vision Next 100, a concept car that aims to anticipate the way passenger vehicles could look in the not-so-distant future. Similar vehicles will be unveiled this year for Rolls-Royce, mini and... drums rolling - BMW Motorrad.

Apparently, the wraps will be pulled off the BMW Vision motorcycle in the autumn in LA, during a dedicated event that will take place from October 11 until 16.

All bets are on as to what bike BMW will be showing this fall, with the first big question being whether it will be an electric or a gas-powered one. BMW Motorrad has been toying with electric machines lately, and the not-that-happily-baptized eRR is only the last one that we know of.

Their C Evolution electric maxi scooters are also doing well, gradually climbing in the sales charts for the Bavarian maker, albeit they’re still an almost uncanny presence on the everyday roads.

On the other hand, BMW might be tempted to experiment with a futuristic cruiser concept, one of the big-bore bikes that are not to be found in the company's roster.

Rumor has it that BMW would try to make the comeback they said they would make when they sacked the R1200C cruiser some ten years ago. Celebrating the centennial would be indeed a glorious opportunity to unveil a new cruiser and make everyone remember it thanks to a mind-boggling concept.

So far, it's anyone's guess, at least until our spies learn more about what's cooking behind the closed doors at BMW Motorrad.
