BMW wants to know what you’re thinking. First, they brought out the LoRider Concept and put up a survey to see what you thought about it, which is a good way to generate feedback in the most direct fashion, “Here it is, what do you think?” Now, they have an innovation contest and they’re looking for some of your ideas about future products:
What will be the perfect motor bike of the future – what features should it have, how much would it cost, who would buy it? What will be the next exciting trend in motor bikes that will fascinate the youth of tomorrow? We are looking for unique, breakthrough products and services for the future of motorcycles, scooters, mopeds or the like vehicles. The solutions should embody innovative technology, passion and modern lifestyle. What mobility function would it serve? Which trends should be integrated: leisure, fun, travel, business, style, ecology, economy? Break free from common conceptions and let your imagination fly! Take part in developing the future of the motorcycle and set new benchmarks in technology, propulsion type, materials, services, design and overall concept. Describe your personal vision, your two wheeled motorized dream.
Thomas, who put the contest together, thought readers of The Kneeslider might be the perfect group to tap for forward looking ideas. Of course, I think so, too. BMW is looking for new ideas appealing to a younger crowd, the next generation of BMW riders, what would they be?
Several prizes are offered, 2000 Euros plus some other material prizes, for the best ideas. You have until July 17th to make your submissions.
If you’re the innovative type and you think your ideas have some merit, check it out.
