The historic car show Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este is an elegance competition for classic and vintage cars, but it is also a place where makers take advantage of the event to showcase some of their upcoming models.
Automotive concepts like the Gran Lusso Coupé, BMW Zagato Coupe and motorcycles like the Concept 90, and just-revealed the gorgeous Mini Superleggera Vision are not all that BMW has to offer. At the recent Villa d’Este Concours d’Elegance on Lake Como, BMW unveiled a stunning new bike called the Roadster Concept.
Ultra-modern motorcycle is built around the latest air- and liquid-cooled boxer twin, an 1,170cc engine officially rated 125 horsepower and 92.2 pound-feet of torque. That power is routed to the rear wheel via a cardan drive.
Roadster Concept’s beautifully styled seat is fabricated in aluminum and wrapped in Alcantara to provide a modicum of comfort. Up front there is a thin swath of LEDs for the headlights. A spoiler under the engine hides the huge resonator/muffler at the core of the Roadster Concept’s exhaust system. As on the HP2 Megamoto, triangulated steel-tubing trellis are painted metallic blue. Details with the colors (such as this one) give this motorcycle remarkable look.
Currently there are no words on production plans but this powerful BMW’s urban bike deserves to be on the street. More information about extreme motorcycles you can find in our shop. Who knows, you might find one that really suits you.
