BMW Hydrogen Powered Concept Bike

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

With all the recent hype surrounding electric motorcycle road racing on tap for 2010—Azhar Hussain’s TTXGP series, Isle of Man’s TT Zero, and the FIM e-power series—have we perhaps forgotten about other alternative power sources for motorcycles? Students at the International School of Design (ISD) at Valenciennes, France have created a concept machine that replaces the conventional combustion engine with a 20-litre cryogenic cylinder powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. Taking its styling clues primarily from BMW’s HP2 Sport, the new creation is called the BMW HP Kunst. Watch the video below to get a better look at what you may be riding in ten years time.
