Motorcycles appeared at the same time as automobiles and quickly became popular in Japan and then the whole world. Although cars still a big percent of all vehicles, motorcycles remain part of road users. Motorcycle concepts of the future are not as famous as automobile concepts. Therefore, Chic Icon introduces the top 5 motorcycles of the future looking at which you can imagine what awaits us in the next 10-15 years.
BMW Motorrad Vision Next 100
In March 2016, the BMW Motorrad division introduced the concept of a very beautiful futuristic motorcycle. The main feature of the BMW Motorrad Vision Next 100 is the assist systems that control the actions of the pilot, eliminating even a slight possibility of accidents. With these motorcycles, you even don’t need to be able to balance because it itself can stand upright without any support. The supporting structure in this motorcycle is a quadrilateral frame. This shape allows the motorcycle to turn the steer at low speed at large angles, and when the speed high, the rigidity of this frame increases. The appearance of the motorcycle is very attractive and concise, while there are no visible hinges and fasteners.
The most interesting thing about this motorcycle is the artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence with a binocular camera and a facial recognition system allows the motorcycle to recognize the owner. The engine starts by gestures. In addition, the bike has a haptic feedback system that seems to “envelop” the driver. MOTOROiD has an AMCES electronic balancing and position control system. This system is based on mechanical actuators that rotate the battery and the rear part of the motorcycle around its axis to keep the motorcycle in an upright position. In addition to the technological features, this motorcycle is incredibly elegant and graceful.
The Hero iON concept, as well as the other participants of this top, has an elegantly futuristic design, but in addition, it has striking technologies. It is equipped with electric motors with lithium-air batteries that use the ambient air to generate energy. But the most important thing is that they are located right inside the hollow wheels of this motorcycle. In addition to these amazing options, it also has other technologies like magnetic levitation for braking; the Hero M-link suspension has a special liquid instead of springs that can change the viscosity under the influence of a magnetic field. The onboard computer automatically adjusts the suspension using a variety of sensors.
BMW Motorrad Concept Link
Another motorcycle from BMW is this top, but it could not be ignored. BMW Motorrad Concept Link is the scooter of the future. Scooter in the 21st century is the most effective individual transport for the city. The extended base is necessary to install the battery. At the rear wheel, there is an electric motor that drives the wheel by a toothed belt. Also, the scooter has a low center of gravity, which helps it to be more stable and have better handling. Of course, there is no dashboard in it; instead, there is a projector that displays information on the windscreen and large touch screen.
Kawasaki Concept J
This motorcycle has the most futuristic look of all the motorcycles in this top. It looks like motorcycles from the “Tron” movie. The 3-wheel concept of the motorcycle is equipped with an electric engine, but its main feature is the flexibility of construction that allows you to change the fit from vertical to sport fit. Instead of a steer, it has a pair of levers attached to the wheels. Unfortunately, Kawasaki did not disclose the technical details of this concept.
