This Beastly BMW ‘Aurora’ Concept Is the Superbike of the Future

You’ve never seen a scrambler quite like this.

BMW R nineT

We’ve seen far-out custom jobs that take the BMW R nineT scrambler into sci-fi-like realms of design. This example is no exception.Β 

It won’t shock anyone to learn that the “Aurora” concept is the brainchild of Turkish artist Mehmet Doruk Erdemβ€”the same mad genius who spawned the BMW “Titan” and “Retina” concepts.Β 

But with two exposed wheels and a relatively recognizable silhouette, this oneΒ couldΒ realistically resemble a production bike from the not-so-distant future.Β 

Hi Consumption reports that Istanbul’s GB Motobike commissioned Erdem to create “an aggressive, street-oriented take on the agile 1,170cc scrambler.”Β 

Indeed, the Aurora’s superbike-like seat position and streamlined silver-and-black paneling give it a much more aggro look than BMW’s current R nineT model. Mission accomplished.Β
