BMW and LEGO have recently collaborated and created a design that will win the heart of every Lego lover.
The LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS Adventure model kit is based on a BMW motorcycle’s design, which has now been converted into the Hover Ride Design Concept.
The LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS Adventure model kit consists of 603 parts and allows LEGO enthusiast to build their miniature version of the BMW R 1200 GS tourer motorbike.
The BMW Motorrad and LEGO first collaborated to create the LEGO Technic model in the form of the motorcycle, and now, they have gone a step further to make the Hover Ride Design Concept.
BMW described the Hover Ride as a futuristic concept, so don’t expect it to hit stores anytime soon.
“full of emotion and creative energy though not laying claim to technological plausibility.”
BMW and LEGO design elements have been bringing designers from both companies to create projects which ensure that the management trainees at the BMW training unit develop multi-disciplinary skills. As a part of team building exercise, the team built this life-size model of the Hover Ride, fully functional with a propeller.
BMW Motorrad’s Head of Vehicle Design, Alexander Buckan, spoke on the project in a video,
“This futuristic concept bike is pretty amazing. I’m really impressed how an idea can be created by LEGO elements and actually become a valid suggestion on how we can ride a motorcycle in the future.”
