BMW recently revealed what they see as the future of motorcycles and when I first saw it I thought immediately that this looks a lot like the Tron lightcycle that was seen in “Tron Legacy”. It’s sleek, futuristic and has those big old tires that just scream lightcycle.

The BMW Motorrad Vision NEXT 100 is even more than that.This cycle will not require a kickstand since it will be fully balanced. The helmet will be replaced with data glasses providing the rider with access to their route and alerting him to danger.

BMW put together an interesting breakdown on all of the innovative changes we can expect in the not-too-distant future:
