BMW Motorrad is on a concept bender lately! Fantastic Villa d’Este glimpses into the future have come into focus over the last few years, with the R NineT a particularly tempting design statement among riders worldwide.
But how to take all the futuristic materials into production, and what bike market to aim for?
This 2015 Concept Path 22 gives us a clear answer: BMW is exploring a Scrambler for the first time. As described by BMW below, the fun and sporty genre of motorcycles is a bit of a hybrid: with street-bike features and performance, but much meatier tire treads and a raised exhaust system to allow mild off-roading. A perfect surfer’s companion, as we can see in this glamour shoot below.
This Concept Path 22 looks very production-friendly, if not completely engineered and on the way to BMW showrooms worldwide. This concept shows a step closer to real life, with a series model likely some time in 2016.
