BMW Hoverbike LEGO Review

BMW Hoverbike LEGO Review

This week we're taking a peek at a LEGO motorcycle [BMW R 1200 GS Adventure] that can be re-built as a hoverbike. It's completely batty, to be sure - but the appeal in having a BMW-branded hoverbike was more than I could handle. I had to built it - and built it I did. It took a few hours (spread out over a few days, about an hour off and on each day), and was quite enjoyable to see unfold.

BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100 motorcycle : no helmet needed

But at its "Iconic Impulses" exhibition in Los Angeles, that is exactly what BMW is showing off. Simply calling it by its name, the Motorrad VISION NEXT 100 doesn’t really do it justice.
