Edgar Heinrich, Head of Design of BMW Motorrad says,

The BMW Motorrad Concept Link stands for a new understanding of urban mobility. It links the digital and analogue world and places the focus on the rider and his mobility needs. In the way it links functionality and digitalisation it performs both as a means of transport as well as a communication device.  For me the BMW Motorrad Concept Link, with its timeless and reduced style, is more than a concept – it is rather a symbol for a new era

Will It Be Out In The Market?

No. These concept vehicles from BMW are only designed to showcase and denote how the future mobility will be a part of its Vision Next 100 project. Also, all the vehicles are just prototypes and are not meant to use these days. BMW is undertaking this project just to show how future vehicles need to be designed.

But, if it gets a lot of demand in the release of these models, maybe the company will think of making a limited number for catering some of the high-tier people. Even though this may be a little disappointing, it creates an assurance that our mobility in the future will be much better.

There need to be more concepts for the vehicles of the future. Maybe we have to stop pursuing flying cars and self-driving cars and make zero-emission, rider-friendly automobiles that need not be autonomous but will make our life much attractive and enjoyable.
