So safe you can ride it without a helmet? BMW reveals self-balancing bike concept that is so safe you will NEVER fall off

The motorcycle of the future is so safe riders can cruise without a helmet and never fall off, giving all of the thrills with none of the danger, according to BMW.

The German automaker unveiled 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.

'Its self-balancing system will help protect the rider at any time,' said Edgar Heinrich, the design director of BMW's motorcycle division.

'Any late reaction from the driver will trigger and the vehicle will balance out.'

'In the future, motorcycle riders will be able to enjoy riding without protective gear.'

According to BMW, the 'flexframe' extends from the front to the rear wheel of the BMW Motorrad Vision Next 100.

This means the bike can be steered without the various joints found on today's motorcycles.

Turning the handlebar adjusts the entire frame, changing the direction of the bike.

The bike also rights itself while even stationary, remaining upright when the rider has dismounted.

The balancing systems will ensure a particularly agile and dynamic riding experience with even lighter handling.

'Motorcycling is about escaping from the everyday: the moment you straddle your bike, you are absolutely free. Your bike is The Great Escape,' said Mr Heinrich.

A 'Digital Companion' provides the situational information and active support the rider needs, while remaining in the background.

The system is constantly active, but remains silent until required to issue an alert via the user interface or provide active assistance.

The rider a can interact with the bike through a pair of data glasses, that cover the wearer's entire field of vision.

As well as providing wind protection, the glasses show relevant data in four designated display areas.

What they see is controlled by the rider's eye movements: looking up or down changes the content that appears, and looking straight ahead switches the information off completely, leaving the rider to focus on the biking.

Looking upwards activates the rear-view function in the visor, allowing the rider to see what is going on on the road behind.

Lowering the eyes to normal levels opens a menu from which the rider can select an option by pointing a finger. Looking further down opens the map view showing the rider's chosen route.

The world's top maker of luxury vehicles has also premiered this year a futuristic BMW sports car with a flexible body, as well as a self-driving Rolls-Royce and an electric Mini model.

BMW is celebrating 100 years of the brand with these forward-looking concept vehicles.

Company representatives said riding without a helmet remains a fantasy for now, though.

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.

Despite its contemporary features the bike will not be fully autonomous, the company said.

'We do not envision autonomy on motorcycles,' said Mr Heinrich, as the driverless autopilot system has faced global scrutiny following fatal crashes in northern China in January and in the US state of Florida in May.

In September, a Tesla electric car crashed into a tourist bus on a motorway in northern Germany, after the driver who was the only one slightly injured claimed he had activated the autopilot system.

BMW aims to commercialise fully autonomous vehicles by 2021, a company spokesman said.

The Munich-based group has been collaborating with US computer chip giant Intel and the Israeli technology firm Mobileye to develop self-driving cars.

Last year, the Munich-based group also joined forces with its German rivals Daimler and Audi, the luxury subsidiary of Volkswagen, to buy the Here digital mapping service from Nokia to assist in the effort.
