Green and Fast: BMW X bike of Jacobus Marx

Posted on by 1

This is the zero-emissions transportation vehicle that is supposed to offer the best green power-to-weight ratio in the near future. It is called the BMW X bike (althought the fact that it has three wheels qualifies it as a trike) and it was designed by Jacobus Marx, who’s inspiration came from BMW’s “efficient dynamic” theme (I guess we can supposed he’s at least fan of the German brand).

Electricity is the key to powering the X bike from zero to 60 in only 4 seconds and to a top speed of more than 150 mph. Two 80KW in-wheel electric motors with regenerative properties are supposed to be used and fed by ceramic batteries that recharge fast and weigh very little.

We must admit that this sound like a plausible concept and can’t help not being impressed by the interactive suspension that is sure to allow filtering through traffic with great ease.

By the looks of it, it seems that it may require the driver to be in a lying position to be able to cruise around with it. That’s the scary thing I find about it. I mean what if I was struck in traffic and I got too comfortable lying down and I fell asleep... mmmm
