BMW Motorrad Concept Z

Over the past couple years, we’ve mulled over the potential of autonomous vehicles from trucks to taxis. In recent months we’ve actually even seen the implantation of self-driving automobiles from the likes of Tesla and Uber (through their Volvo collaboration). But what about the preferred means of transportation for our more adventurous brethren, those who enjoy the thrill of two wheels instead of four?

Well, they can thank designer Anja Didrichsons for presenting this concept for one of the first autonomous motorcycles around. And what better canvas to paint such a vision than with a BMW? Dubbed the BMW Motorrad Concept Z, the idea also allows for a modular model offering different riding options depending on your type of trip. From a more cruising-friendly escape mode to sport mode -where the seat is slightly raised placing the rider in a more aerodynamic position- to an autonomous mode where the rider can actually lounge on the bike’s unfurled backrest at the rear. There’s also a dashboard screen where you can watch one of your favorite movies or tv shows while the autonomous computer system does the driving for you. Though it may take a bit of trust, this is certainly a future we can look forward to entering.
