In an attempt to bridge the gap between virtual and actual reality, industrial designer Christian Zanzotti, GRAYDEV, and Wunderlich worked together to design and prototype a custom BMW R1200 R in virtual reality. Sounds a bit strange we know, but taking a closer look at the specs of this bike display not only a knowledge of custom bike outfitting but a well-ascribed assumption of where concept development is soon heading.

Known as the Digimoto, the concept features a BMW Boxer Engine held within the modified R1200R frame. It sits atop aluminum-milled wheels wrapped within a set of standard racing tires and includes a hand-welded aluminum tank, a laser-cut rubber racing seat, and a Makrolon brake light. The concept also puts sensors and cameras on the motorcycle that record any information around the bike. The accrued data is then translated into rider-legible information, displaying it onto the visor of the paired helmet. This allows for a minimalist bike design, practically reducing the need for a display board at all, and thus enhancing the collaborative streamlined approach to the concept. No word on pricing because it isn’t for sale, though if money is no object for you then we’re willing to bet the designers would entertain a meeting.
