One can create anything with the help of Legos and that’s the same principle the guys from BMW took when created this one-of-a-kind motorcycle.
Lego provides everyone with inspiration ever since it came on the market, and the designers from BMW couldn’t find anything better to get their inspiration from.
Recently, the two big companies started one of the best collaboration in the history of the world, to create LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS Adventure model kit based on a BMW motorcycle.
But that wasn’t enough; they took their inspiration from the Technic BMW R 1200 GS Adventure kit to bring the Hover Ride Design Concept, which is a flying hover motorcycle, to life.
The model kit allowed Lego to create a miniature version of the best-selling BMW R 1200 GS Adventure.
LEGO was first approached by BMW Motorrad with the idea to create the first LEGO Technic model designed together with a motorcycle manufacturer.
But they did not stop there. By combining BMW and LEGO design elements, designers from both companies and created the concept with the help of a BMW training unit that gives trainees opportunities to work across departments on different projects.
In a press release BMW described the Hover Ride as a futuristic concept “full of emotion and creative energy though not laying claim to technological plausibility.”
BMW Motorrad Head of Vehicle Design Alexander Buckan said in a video on the project, “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.”
And not only can grade schoolers learn from playing with LEGOS – Buckan said their unusual process to create a LEGO Hover Ride and then a real Hover Ride offered an excellent learning opportunity for the designers involved.
The LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS Adventure kit is available for purchase with £54.99 ($70) price tag.
