Inspired by the never-ending highway, the feeling of freedom and sheer independence, the BMW Motorrad design team came up with a completely new approach to touring motorcycles with their Concept 101.
On 22 May 2015, BMW Motorrad presented a fascinating concept bike – the BMW Motorrad "Concept 101". The place for this world premiere: The exclusive Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, one of the world’s most significant events celebrating historic cars and motorcycles on Italy's Lake Como.
While chasing the spirit of the open road, a powerful, emotional and highly exclusive six-cylinder bike was born that turns every ride into a unique driving experience.
Dark wood, brushed aluminum and carbon
The Concept 101 is the BMW interpretation of a bagger, an exclusive custom bike style particularly popular in the USA. Its extra elongated, drop-shaped body are very eye-catching.
Clear lines and carefully modelled surfaces lend it a sportbike character – just the sight of it promises a unique riding experience. Dark wood detailing amid the silver finish with brushed aluminum and carbon surfaces add an exclusive and warm accent.
The BMW Motorrad Concept 101 is the perfect marriage of power and exclusivity: six high-powered cylinders in a 1,649 cc engine lend the bike its powerful torque, pushing it beyond conventional horsepower stats and letting it soar. Not only its performance is impressive, it looks great, too. The quality of materials and design go far beyond previous standards of top quality and exclusivity.
