Certainly, BMW’s Vision Vehicles are nothing short of time machines. During this week’s Global Premier of BMW’s Motorrad, the world was shot into the #Next100 years of motorcycle innovation.

Motorrad #Next100

The Varvid team was lucky to witness the destiny of motor-vehicle engineering in-person. James Lane, our Los Angeles Team Lead and city traffic expert, guided the rest of the crew to Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar. That Monday evening, we prepared for the event with BMW’s production team and with our clients from KBS.

“The way I see it, if you’re gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?”

Before Tuesday’s press release, we captured video of the #Next100 vehicles to blend into the Motorrad’s Premiere livestream. Besides BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce also showcased Vision concept cars; yet, unveiling the future Motorrad heightened public interest. Attracting 563k plus viewers during it’s Connected Event Facebook stream, these concept vehicles grasped the imaginations of remote viewers all over the globe.
