BMW Lo Rider concept unveiled in Milan


The BMW Lo Rider concept. Brutal, but very, very cool...


After the Husqvarna SMQ and Aprilia Mana X concepts, we have the BMW Lo Rider concept, which… actually looks very cool! Naked and stripped down, the Lo Rider looks quite purposeful. If Mad Max were German, he’d probably ride one of these…

With its flat-twin engine, 17-inch wheels, twin petal-type brake discs at front (with six-piston calipers), USD fork, Paralever single-sided swingarm, Ohlins rear suspension and gnarly styling that’s reminiscent of some 1960s scramblers, the Lo Rider is an engaging mix of old-world simplicity and new-age high-tech.

The bike was designed by a team led by David Robb, Head of Design Development at BMW Motorrad. Well done, Mr Robb, we quite like your motorcycle. Now will you please take an F800R to your lab and see what can be done to improve its styling…
