BMW SIMPLE, Narrow & leaning trike concept

BMW's continuation of their alternative narrow vehicle design concepts. Very similar to the Carver/CLEVER design from 2002, this one followed a lot of iconic design cliches. At different viewing angles, you see bits & pieces from the Star Wars X-wing fighter, a TRON light cycle paint job or F-117 multi-faceted stealth design. Probably not optimally aero-prepped but a design concession to make it more aggressive to resemble a fighter plane, it even reminds me of an Me Bf-19 in its cockpit treatment. To masculinize (is that a word?) a new niche of narrow vehicles, they introduce design treatments of aggressive fairing designs, similar on sportbikes. Another tilt three wheeler concept that will probably not see production. Still, another fun auto show addition.
