A recent collaboration between BMW and LEGO has led to a new BMW hover motorcycle that looks like something right out of a science fiction movie!

The process to arrive at this conceptual vehicle has however been an unusual and unique one. BMW and LEGO created the bike via the BMW ‘Training Unit’, a strategy that gives BMW trainees the amazing opportunity of working in a cross-disciplinary manner on diverse projects. They developed the idea directly from the existing 603-part LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS adventure model kit. The result is a futuristic concept-bike that is a creative and libidinal expression of two-wheeled transportation (although not quite plausible yet hence the science fiction movie reference!). The training unit went as far as to build a dynamic life-size model of the hover cycle for added credibility.

The threshold between fictional toy makers (LEGO) and commercial reality manufacturers (BMW) continues to dissolve. Unfortunately, the hover cycle won’t be available on the market anytime soon!
