We’re not really into two wheels here but when such incredible ideas come to life it would be a shame not to showcase them to the entire world – not to mention dream about owning them.
We already know – from the association of the Lego brand – that even if it’s technically possible to have the Hover Ride Design Concept it’s still going to be a toy and you’re the one doing the hovering. And we still want it. Anyways, the deal is as follows. Lego’s BMW R 1200 GS Adventure kit has 603 parts and you can enhance the fun by turning the very same bricks into the Hover Ride Design Concept. Even more so, BMW Junior Company Munich, a training unit part of the BMW Group has actually upped the ante by creating a fullsize replica of the Hover Ride. The Lego Technic model was jointly developed with the motorcycle manufacturer and can be yours – but this replica is not for sale.
The concept is great – it’s inspired by the Lego-made counterpart and keeps BMW Motorrad’s design philosophy by crafting the silhouette of the GS together with its boxer engine. But it turns out BMW Junior had to develop and craft some components for the ambitious project. For example the front-wheel rim was turned into a propeller. The fullsize Hover Ride Design Concept is on display at the Lego World in Copenhagen, Denmark and will then travel to the BMW Group Research and Innovation Center Munich and BMW Welt.
