Alexander Buckan, Head of Vehicle Design at BMW, says:

“Riding a bike is all about freedom, but the ultimate freedom is to go anywhere. I believe the GS Adventure is the right answer to almost every challenge.”

The dampers stabilize the wings and reduce buffeting under high-G maneuvers. The combustion engine is a retro-inspired housing for the proton exhange membrane (PEM) fuel cell/lithium-ion battery hybrid system that powers the anti-gravity thrusters, which will be accompanied by a faux boxer engine soundtrack.

Sources say the main drawback of the Hover Ride™ is that the anti-gravity thrusters only work on April 1st of each year.
