Inspired by the BMW Motorrad Vision Next 100, the Concept Link treads new paths and moves beyond established conventions both with regard to design and technology.
The special character of the concept vehicle becomes clear right away thanks to the completely new design language. The low-slung, stretched body and the flat seat combined with the diagonally rising front section create a modern yet distinctive silhouette.
The new and emphatically function-driven architecture provides a high level of riding pleasure due to the E-drive. The Concept Link is ideally suited to meet the requirements of modern urban mobility with fast acceleration and easy handling. Due to its low overall height, getting on is easy from the side or even from the back. A reverse gear ensures that it is easy to manoeuvre, making it ideal to park in tight city spaces.
The seat bench can be adjusted lengthwise to suit every preference. The proportions also make room for new storage space. In the centre section, underneath the seat bench, a luggage compartment offers versatile storage opportunities. The rider can access this quickly and easily at all times using a sliding door. With its new architecture, the Concept Link combines riding pleasure and functionality in an ideal way.
It keeps the rider connected while riding, thereby expanding his mobile world by providing him with new opportunities. The focus is also on being able to enjoy the riding experience without any distractions.
Therefore, the classic instrument cluster has been dropped, and speed, navigation and battery information is projected onto the windshield directly into the rider’s field of vision. Secondary information is displayed on the large-surface panel, which matches the design perfectly and is located below the handlebars. The panel enables a large number of possible ways of interacting with the outside world and for communicating with other vehicles.
The touch-sensitive surface of the large-size panel displays and controls extensive infotainment, connectivity and routing information. Freely programmable, touch-enabled buttons on the handlebars allow the rider to access preferred and frequently used functions without having to remove his hands from the handlebars.
