In form and performance it resembles the traditional BMW Boxer engine, but houses the emission-free drive unit. Depending on the riding situation, the exterior shape of the opposed-twin engine changes. At a standstill, it lies tight.


Whether being in motion or in a gridlock: The motorbike would be equipped with a self-balancing system and therefore wouldn’t just tilt over. This is one more of the futuristic features in this motorbike which is supposed to allow the driver to “experience a sensation of total freedom” – independently from their driving skills.

Accordingly to BMW, things like helmets or protective gear might become redundant.The VISION NEXT 100 is endowed with self-driving technology, but may not be fully autonomous as the company is primarily focusing on its cars to get them autonomously driven.
