BMW Titan Motorcycle Concept

The first land speed record was set on the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1914 by Teddy Teztlaff. For no other reason but to do it, he rocketed a 300 horsepower Mercedes-Benz across the desert at 142 miles an hour. Ever since then, daredevils and madmen keep showing up to that stretch of flat land in the Utah desert to push the limit of engineering and strength. If Turkish designer Mehmet Erdem’s BMW Titan Concept would ever be built, we’re sure it’d show up ready to set a new record in that famous desert.

According to Mehmet, the conceptual motorcycle took a lot of its inspiration from the form of a shark. The back wheel looks like a tail, the sides like fins, and the air-intake like a pair of gills. All of this is topped off by what seems like a very forgiving seat-cushion. Even speed demons deserve some comfort, I guess.
