The project originally started off as a collaboration between Lego and BMW Motorrad, the German automaker’s motorcycle division, for a 603-piece BMW R 1200 GS Adventure kit. Many Lego kits are what the company calls a 2 in 1, where one set of Lego pieces can be styled into two finished products. For the R 1200 GS, the second kit was a futuristic flying motorcycle. The team at BMW Motorrad had so much fun working with Lego that the group decided to craft a full-scale model.
While this isn’t a functioning concept, it’s awesome to see how a motorcycle became a Lego kit which in turn became a hoverbike concept. What was the front wheel on the motorcycle became the concept’s propeller. The design also incorporates traditional BMW Motorrad elements like the boxer two-cylinder engine. The Lego kit is on sale now for $59.99.
