BMW Motorrad unveils Concept Roadster
Initially BMW Motorrad had presented the BMW Concept Ninety at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in 2013, which was the company's modern take on a classic motorcycle with a boxer engine.
By contrast, this time round BMW decided to showcase a boxer-powered Concept Roadster at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este 2014, to give the world a sneak peek into the future of BMW Motorrad design. On the occasion Edgar Heinrich, Head of BMW Motorrad Design said that 'The BMW Concept Roadster shows that as far as BMW is concerned, motorcycling is about far more than just perfect function. This concept bike is a symbol of how modern and emotional a boxer-powered BMW roadster can be.'
