Whether you like it or not, electricity is the future of motor vehicles. And we’re seeing more and more big name manufacturers get behind it. Further solidifying that fact is this latest release from BMW’s Motorrad division – an all-electric concept motorcycle called the Link.

Targeted specifically at urban mobility, the bike’s design circles around displaying the onboard technology – which can be seen in the unique low-profile format and in how the body panels leave the drive unit, cooling ribs, single-sided swing arm, spring strut, and tooth belt deliberately uncovered. Even the colors play a part in emphasizing the Link’s modernity. Take, for instance, the orange of the cables that connect the battery and the rear drive or the contrast of the semi-matte black body with the Liquid Metal Titanium front trim. Everything on this concept, from handle bars to rear wheels, is meant to demonstrate the brand’s commitment to both the needs of their riders and the future of the automotive industry. And if that’s the way that things are headed, we’ll be looking forward to seeing more.
