New Delhi: Imagine a day when you can ride your bike without having to bother about wearing a helmet. The cool-quotient be kept at bay, come to think of the safety that the bike brings along sans the helmet.
Yes! we are taking about BMW's futuristic bike.
The motorcycle of the future is so safe riders can cruise without helmet -- all of the thrills with none of the danger -- according to BMW.
The German automaker unveiled on Tuesday its Motorrad Vision Next 100, a sleek, self-balancing prototype the company released as part of its 100th anniversary celebrations.
The zero-emissions bike has self-balancing wheels designed to stand upright even at a complete stop, stability that the company says will allow riders to forgo riding a helmet.
Many countries mandate the protective gear and self-balancing technology is still in the developmental stage -- if the latest concept vehicle becomes a reality, it likely won`t be before 2030.
