What you're looking at is the BMW Motorrad Concept Link, the company's pitch for the future of two-wheeled, electric urban mobility. "A symbol of a new era," Motorrad head of design Edgar Heinrich calls it, and if that's the case, we're very excited.

The Link's design is low and stretched thanks to a flat seat and energy packs, while the compact electric drive is neatly concealed by the rear wheel. A two-tone, liquid metal titanium and matte black body give it a functional character as well. All this makes for a practical and versatile form with a ton of storage options.

Motorrad head of vehicle design Alexander Buckan puts the Link's design in perspective: "The BMW Motorrad Concept Link is not based on today’s concepts, but rather meets the basic functionality needs, the technical architecture, and the digital reality of today’s users."

"The resulting expressive power of the vehicle is absolutely new for BMW Motorrad and breaks with all conventional viewing patterns,” Buckan adds.

There's plenty of tech to go around, too: projected vehicle info on the windshield, a futuristic instrument cluster, a plethora of communication functions, and an infotainment system with the ability to choose the most suitable tracks and most scenic routes.

Is the Link the scooter of the future? If the answer is yes, we don't mind one bit.
