    Default BMW Unveiled Concept 101 in Italy: xBhp News

    BMW showcased its concept 101 last week at the Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este, Italy. BMW along with Roland Sands Designs have designed and built this bike. Concept 101 is BMW’s lastest offering as a touring Motorcycles, a performance beast powered by a 1649cc, 6 cylinder engine meant for relaxed and all day riding position.

    Edgar Heinrich, Head of BMW Motorrad Design said:
    "The Concept 101 opens up a new chapter in the history of our concept bikes. It is the BMW Motorrad interpretation of endless highways and the dream of freedom and independence - the perfect embodiment of ‘American touring.’ Designing this big touring bike study was amazingly exciting for us because we haven't been involved with a motorcycle concept like this before. To me, the Concept 101 is the epitome of elegance, power and luxury on two wheels.”
    The 101 stands for engine’s 101 cubic inch size. The bike was built at BMW Group subsidiary Designworks in Newbury Park, California, just off historic Highway 101. Concept 101’s 6 cylinder engine currently powers BMW’s K1600GT sport-tourer. With plenty of low-end torque, the 6 cylinder engine is producing claimed 175 nm torque at 5250rpm. The dual exhaust with 3 chambers ensures the potential of 6 cylinder engine by making the sound audible appropriately.

    Thanks to Roland Sand Designs for their engine clarity covers due to which most of the engine inner working is exposed.

    The bodywork is an interesting combination of brushed aluminum, carbon fiber, and milled wood. A low-seated smoked windscreen slopes back to an instrument panel complete with an integrated audio system, and boomin’ sound systems are another tip at its intended target. The hard saddlebags look fairly capacious and are styled to continue the flow established by the front bodywork. An upright riding triangle is formed by a large leather seat, mid-mounted footpegs and what look like RSD ProStep Handlebars.

    BMW Concept 101 is road ready, but when the prototype will turn into production is questionable. This would perfectly stand against the Honda’s Gold Wing and few other Performance touring bike offerings from other manufactures as well.
