Munich. As a totally new judgment between bicycle
and motorbike, a BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY taps into fresh
possibilities for a innovative, civic mobility of a future. It is
one of 5 opposite judgment vehicles that a BMW Group will use at
a IAA Mobility 2021 in Munich to showcase a prophesy of individual
mobility in and around a civic setting.
Under a common powerful of electric mobility, digitalisation and
sustainability, these 5 pioneering concepts form a versatile and
sustainably recognized mobility brew on dual and 4 wheels that
comprehensively addresses a rarely opposite operation of mobility needs.
BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY and BMW i Vision AMBY.
AMBY stands for “Adaptive Mobility”. The BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY and
a BMW i Vision AMBY (see BMW i Vision AMBY press release) interpret
a elemental thought of adaptive civic mobility on dual wheels formed on
incompatible facets. Both vehicles are electrically powered with three
speed levels for opposite forms of road. The expostulate allows adult to 25
km/h on cycle paths, adult to 45 km/h on inner-city roads and adult to a top
speed of 60 km/h on multi-lane roads and out of town. A helmet,
word looseness plates and a applicable pushing looseness are required
to be means to transport during aloft speeds, however. While a BMW i Vision
AMBY as a high-speed pedelec requires consistent pedalling in sequence to
benefit assistance from a electric drive, a BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY
is accelerated regulating a stifle hold and has footrests instead of
pedals, as is standard of a motorcycle.
The modes accessible to a supplement are stored in a app on the
smartphone that connects to a particular AMBY prophesy vehicle.
Manual preference of a speed turn is conceivable, as is
showing of a highway by means of geofencing technology, thereby
permitting involuntary composition of a tip speed. As there is currently
no authorised basement for such a car with a modular speed concept, the
thought behind a AMBY prophesy vehicles is to prompt legislation that
will capacitate this kind of set-up. In this way, a BMW Group is
demonstrating that it will continue to be concerned in providing
mobility options in vast cities in a destiny and offers innovative solutions.
New stimuli for romantic mobility on dual wheels.
“The BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY takes us into new territory. For us,
a concentration is on user poise – a doubt is: how will customers
wish to get around in a future? What will they pattern their vehicle
to be means of? This was precisely a starting indicate of our
deliberations. Our aim was to rise an intensely romantic vehicle
for intelligent mobility in and around a city that offering maximum
freedom. The BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY unequivocally does capacitate a customers
to knowledge civic life in a whole new way, cover distances more
flexibly and “break free” of a city from time to time, too. At the
same time, BMW Motorrad is consistently posterior a electromobility
plan for civic conurbations. It’s a fascinating introduction to
a universe of BMW Motorrad that also promises limit roving pleasure,”
explains Edgar Heinrich, Head of Design BMW Motorrad.
The pattern – a DNA of BMW Motorrad.
The BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY defies all existent categories: visually
same to a universe of bicycles, it is a motorbike during heart. Its slender
proportions guarantee ruggedness and adventure, while a design
suggests transparent echoes of a fluent impression and plans of an BMW
Enduro motorbike. With corpulent treads on both a 26-inch front wheel,
that has a thinner tyre, and a 24-inch behind circle with a more
dull tyre, a BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY clearly shows that it is
both peaceful and means to go anywhere. The resolutely integrated chair with
a tallness of 830 mm is usually as standard a motorbike underline as a bound footrests.
The chair also acts as a pattern component over a flat, rising upper
support section, formulating a distinguished flyline. This produces a completely
new, uninformed demeanour for BMW Motorrad – a couple between a e-bike and
The vast appetite storage territory and expostulate unit
form a dim distinguished retard during a centre of a frame.
The large-dimensioned bicycle flare on a front circle features
protectors and gives a whole front territory a some-more massive, powerful
look. A tiny headlight with a U-shaped BMW Motorrad light signature
is a transparent anxiety to a roots of a concept, as is a double LED
component as a tail light. Another BMW Motorrad underline is that a BMW
Motorrad Vision AMBY is accelerated from a handlebars, as is
prevalent on a motorbike.
With a sum weight of usually 65 kg, the
BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY is significantly lighter than other
motorbikes, ensuring it offers glorious manoeuvrability and agility.
Colour and element judgment featuring abyss and astonishing details.
As compared to a compulsory explosion engine, a judgment of the
electric expostulate in a BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY means there is little
in a approach of manifest mechanics.
For this reason, a technical
heart is deliberately sheltered and showcased in a striking
machine-like style. This accentuates a rarely elaborated colour and
element concept, that goes good over a normal dark
underlying colour intrigue and use of white highlights.
In a use of materials, a BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY
cross-references dual other judgment vehicles that will also see their
universe premiere during a IAA Mobility 2021: The BMW i Vision Circular and
a BMW i Vision AMBY. The trim element used on a appetite storage
territory – famous as “floating grey polymers” – is also used in a bumper
of a BMW i Vision Circular. It consists of recycled cosmetic and can
itself be fed behind into a element cycle during a finish of a product
lifecycle. Meanwhile a element used for a chair is also to be
found in a saddle of a BMW i Vision AMBY and in a tyres of the
BMW i Vision Circular. Based on recycled cosmetic grind and
sporting a fascinating terrazzo look, it demonstrates how several
materials can be given a second life with a new form and function.
Asymmetrical pattern of a sides of a vehicle.
In gripping with a unexpected, confident impression of a BMW
Motorrad Vision AMBY, a dual sides have deliberately been designed
distinctively. On both sides, a white “AMBY” lettering catches the
eye above a light-coloured expostulate unit, creation a distinguished statement
as a stylised distinguished on a trim of a appetite storage unit. While
a lettering on a left gains additional visible abyss from a
colourfully shimmering, shimmering dump shadow, a marker on the
right appears deliberately though a dump shadow. Below a energy
storage territory there are dual shimmering elements that supplement a serve accentuation.
On a right-hand side of a vehicle, 3 tiny bluish blue
tubes visibly emerge from a silhouette, clearly alluding to the
electric heart of a BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY. Next to this is a
quote by Markus Schramm, Head of BMW Motorrad: „Electro-mobility will
be unequivocally poignant for a destiny of motorcycling. We predict a slew
of arriving products with a concentration on electric propulsion, particularly
in a margin of civic mobility. And I’m not usually meditative of classic
scooters here, though also of choice modern, romantic products.
Electro-mobility on dual wheels needs to be unequivocally fun and adventurous
and BMW is committed to building analogous products.”
On closer inspection, a interplay between a technoid pixel font
with a classical serif rise reflects a good courtesy to fact at
several points: together these overpass a opening between a past and the
destiny – usually like a prophesy car itself. The coordinates on the
right are a anxiety to a BMW Motorrad Design Studio in Munich,
where a BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY came into being. On a opposite
side, a letters “AMBY” also seem in Morse code, though with dashes
visualising a dots. In their ideal interplay, all these carefully
recognized sum emanate a singular distinguished and a rarely contemporary
clarity of style.
The smartphone as a key.
The specifically grown app enables a user to activate a BMW
Motorrad Vision AMBY for riding, review in their stored pushing licence
classes and make use of a suitable word cover on an
on-demand basement as required. In this way, a app performs a classic
pivotal duty while also creation use of a prevalent identification
options supposing by a smartphone such as Face ID. Basic functions
and standing queries (e.g. stream assign status) are accessible as in
a BMW App. Further developments and adjustments to a program can
be supposing to business during any time around over-the-air
The smartphone shown in a prophesy car charges
inductively on a captivating hilt in a rider’s reduce margin of
vision. These connectivity options would also concede anti-theft
word and a openly programmable immobiliser to be offering as
And a answer to a doubt “Where is my BMW
Motorrad Vision AMBY?” would be usually a click divided on a smartphone, too.
Geofencing as a pivotal technology.
Instead of selecting a roving mode yourself, geofencing technology
total with a minute HERE map use could yield a required
parameters for automatically adjusting speed levels (25/45/60 km/h)
and a relating word cover. This record enables a vehicle
to detect a form of road, cycle trail or slow-traffic area currently
being used so that a limit accessible speed can be automatically
adjusted. In this way, a BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY would transform
from a car identical to an S-pedelec to something that is more
motorcycle-inspired. The user can't overrule a mode. The required
looseness image takes a form of an innovative arrangement surface, so the
mode comparison during any given time can be simply recognized and review by
other highway users.
Additional technological innovations are fathomable for a BMW
Motorrad Vision AMBY, too: an optimised ABS complement could further
boost safety, as could an involuntary high lamp or stop light
assistant, as good as daytime using lights. A tyre pressure
monitoring complement such as a one already accessible as an optional
additional in BMW Group motorcycles is also conceivable. Finally, potential
reserve facilities could also embody a stretch radar with a operation of up
to 140 m to yield a visible and acoustic warning in a app when
there is a car coming from behind.
The BMW Motorrad Vision AMBY shows one probable phenomenon of what
a modern, civic mobility of tomorrow competence demeanour like. It is intended
as a plans to expostulate brazen conversations about future-oriented
transport in cities.
