Developed by graduate engineer Stefan Hans and his team, this very special R 1200 GS independently drives off, accelerates, circles a winding test track and independently slows down to a stop.

BMW claim they are by no means aiming for a completely independent motorcycle. Rather that the underlying technology should serve as a platform for development of future systems and functions to make motorcycling even safer, more comfortable and increase the riding pleasure.

BMW stated that the aim of the prototype is to gather additional knowledge with regards driving dynamics in order to detect dangerous situations early on and thus support the driver with appropriate safety systems while turning at intersections or when braking suddenly.
