Video: BMW Motorrad Unveils Concept 9cento Superbike
While BMW is busy testing out and preparing its latest models, Motorrad division is also in the works of latest superbike concepts. One of them has just been released in the media and is presumed to lead the way for a future bike in the Adventure Sport series.
Motorrad`s new concept is titled 9cento and represents “the ideal sports touring bike”, with a stylish and an extremely aerodynamic design. As the company also mentioned, the concept gives us a “look ahead to what an exciting new Adventure Sport model might look like.”
Besides the couple of details about its style, there are no any info concerning the amount of power it will come with. However, Edgar Heinrich, Head of Design at BMW Motorrad, gave us enough reasons to believe that the concept is fit to wear the carmaker`s badge, stating:
We’ve created a bike that combines the appropriate power with reliable sports touring properties and above all lots of riding fun, so it’s an attractive overall package. It brings together the best of the sports, adventure and touring segments to produce an exciting concept – in a class which has not seen this kind of model from BMW before.”
The BMW Motorrad Concept 9cento features an extremely appealing design, with plenty of new aluminum components, ’hovering’ side panels, nicely-sculpted fuel tank, as well as a windscreen which provides protection against the elements.
The new concept is also extremely practical, coming with an ”innovative storage space concept”, featuring a clip-element on the rear of the motorcycle. The bike can also be had with a rear passenger seat or storage case.
Mechanically, the Concept 9cento comes with a milled aluminum rear carrier and carbon fiber reinforced plastic frame, along with a touring-focused suspension system which provides increased comfort and a ”sense of light-footedness.”
