BMW Motorrad makes kickass bikes and LEGO makes good toys. Now, what do you think would happen if these guys team up for a project. A toy bike you may think! But that’s not the case here.  BMW Motorrad and LEGO Technic Design have joined hands and heads to design and create a Design Concept Hover Ride based on the former’s R 1200 GS Adventure motorcycle. In simple words, a hover bike!

We have seen the crazy Aero-X hoverbike from Aerofox that takes flight with the help of two propellers. This ain’t the same. The LEGO Technic BMW Motorrad hover bike looks like it has taken birth from a sci-fi movie. The folks at LEGO Technic first made a LEGO model of the R 1200 GS motorcycle with 603 exclusively designed pieces. Then using similar pieces a hoverbike was conceptualized. The hover bike version of the R 1200 GS motorcycle was then presented to BMW Motorrad.

Further, the BMW Junior Company, a BMW Group training unit, turned the Hover Ride included in the scale model set into an elaborately produced full-size replica. The life-size model was presented during the LEGO World event in Copenhagen and will travel afterward to different locations in Denmark and the BMW Welt in Munich.
