BMW has a history of presenting new prototypes at the Villa d’Este Elegance on the shores of Lake Como in Italy. And this year is no different, as the Bavarian brand has just unveiled its new 9cento concept – and it looks like the badass little brother of the S1000XR.
Essentially, the 9cento is BMW’s latest concept-bike, which has been built around its new two-cylinder front-facing engine that powers the 2018 F850GS, while drawing design inspiration from the S1000XR sports-tourer. But the 9cento blends a few clever design details to make it a totally different prospect in appearance. It looks cool, doesn’t it?
