Alex Earle’s BMW GS Concepts are similar to BMW R 1250 GS Oberdan Bezzi design, but way more futuristic and cooler. Bezzi’s BMW R 1250 GS design is practical and is perfect for 2010, but Alex Earle’s BMW GS Concept is what he doctor ordered to take BMW Motorrad USA into the future. BMW’s GS line up is an all-around, do-it-all ‘Swiss Army Knifes of Bikes’ adventure motorcycles that are well engineered and reliable, they just lack the visual aesthetics I crave, and all important cool factor that is so sought after hear in the states.

Earle studied at Art Center College of Design, which I was accepted to, but I never saw the point in coming up with killer transportation concepts to just have a lone concept car made, or for that mater nothing at all to ever hit the production line.

Alex Earle gets it! His style is ultra modern with a hint of retro vibe. His BMW GS concept and renderings are what the GS and GS Adventure could be and should be; an ultra sleek, modern, utilitarian, nimble tank.

BMW has the design pedigree, I am not sure why the GS lineup is not treated like the iconic beloved 3 Series autos, with care and a different array of models geared to the individuals needs and desires. Sporting-luxury or just all out sport like with the M3. I am making a suggestion to BMW Motorrad to hire both Bezzi & Earle to work on future motorcycles projects. And if they want to hire me as a Creative Director or Creative Consultant, I’d welcome it. Well the BMW R1200 GS concept and renderings pictured hear I feel are stunning, cool and stay true to BMW’s progressive engineering it is now just finally represented on the outside. Maybe one day we will see a High Performance GS Adventure Tourer from Bavarian Motor Works? If you build it they will ride it.

“This is an exercise to develop my ideal long-range motorcycle. My concept is to create a bike combining the legendary GS engineering with a minimalist approach to cladding and parts count. A kind of Leatherman tool on wheels with no concessions to comfort or efficiency. Another machine of substance, as endearing as a horse.” – Alex Earle

PUMA Motorcycle Concept

The PUMA Motorcycle CAD rendering was developed by Karl Sanders during his final year at Coventry University studying Transport and Product Design, something I should studied… But they never build these crazy cool concepts anyway.

This was a great interpretation of the modern direction PUMA has gone in the past years, with venturing into motorcycle safety equipment like boots, gloves and racing leathers. The PUMA Motorcycle concept uses a number of styling elements borrowed from the world of PUMA’s clothing products, and Karl’s done a great job at fusing together the two very different worlds of athletic clothing and motorcycles. The frame of the concept follows the form of the trade mark PUMA logo, and the unique tire treads are inspired by a sole pattern found in PUMA’s current footwear range. A genius concept and branding straightly, PUMA should commission a joint project with a motorcycle manufacture or custom builder, that’s my two sense.

BMW R 1250 GS Oberdan Bezzi Design

Retro vibe with aggressive design! Italian designer Oberdan Bezzi has introduced a successful Bavarian adventure-touring rendering of the BMW R 1250 GS motorcycle.

It is more aggressive with a sporty short beak, it still keeps the continuity and the family resemblance of the GS line, new but with evolution and not revolution. I totally dig the BMW retro race scheme; it pays tribute to the Paris Dakar Rally racers of years past but still looks fresh and up-to-date.

Updated design elements I like are the black frames, forks, and rims. The flush pylon passenger seat makes it easer to haul luggage. A functional addition is the BMW GS Adventure stainless steal luggage rack instead of the current plastic rack. The upgrade to a larger windscreen with metal bracket for better wind buffeting. And the centered exhaust is an excellent idea, this will allow for the side panniers to have a less of a profile. The front fender looks cool but will it do anything? I hope BMW Motorrad is paying attention; this rendering by Oberdan Bezzi takes the bike to the next level, and is on par with the BMW F800’s cool styling, and color schemes. www.motosketches.blogspot.com
