    BMW has unveiled its vision of how it thinks motorcycling could look in 100 years with its VISION NEXT 100 Motorrad concept.

    BMW envisions a future where two-wheel vehicles have enough onboard intelligence to make it possible for riders to use them without protective clothing, and while the emphasis here is still on the thrill of the ride, the concept’s intelligent rider aids means safety is paramount.

    BMW claims the Motorrad’s systems will be smart enough to anticipate the road ahead and offer guidance on what to do to avoid incidents, and it can even step in and take over to prevent anything from happening if necessary. However, the really clever part is the use a self-balancing system that absolutely prevents the possibility of the bike toppling over, either when in motion or when standing still.
