Concept Bike transformed into a touring motorcycle – WHEELS.ca
BMW Group gives insight What a new Adventure Sport model could look like: the BMW Motorrad Concept 9cento (pronounced ‘nove cento’) combines emotion and performance with an adventurous spirit, agility and driving pleasure to create the ideal sport touring bike.
The BMW Motorrad Concept 9cento is our interpretation of a modern all-rounder for the new mid-range segment, âexplains Heinrich (BMW Motorrad Design Manager) and adds:â Functional properties such as passenger capacity, space Storage and protection from wind and weather are relevant to most motorcyclists, but they are rarely included in the design of a concept vehicle.
Proportions reflecting agility and lightness:
With its compact silhouette, the BMW Motorrad Concept 9cento at first glance expresses agility and lightness – its proportions simply make you want to get in and out. The basic sporty setup with plenty of bulk near the front wheel and a short, high rear promises driving pleasure and agile handling.
Lightweight construction for agility and dynamic performance.
The triangle of the frame is reinforced with CFRP fleece: it not only reduces the overall weight of the bike, but also connects the three-dimensional design of the front trim to the aluminum rear rack.
Front and rear with characteristic lighting design.
The lighthouse is modern in style, with two symmetrical lamp elements. Each of the two elements has an iconic LED daytime running light in the lower section with a flat and dynamic U-shape, while two compact LED lenses on either side provide the low beam and high beam.
Two jackets, two versions.
Two motorcycle jackets have been developed to accompany the BMW Motorrad Concept 9cento. Each reflects the properties of the bike with their refined blend of leather and Kevlar fabric: Sport and Touring.
The BMW Motorrad Concept 9cento has the potential to expand the current notion of a modern sport touring motorcycle by adding smart functionality, without neglecting agility and driving pleasure.
