BMW S1000 “Lightburner” Concept by Oberdan Bezzi

Oberdan Bezzi has been on a roll lately, making some intriguing concept sketches for two-wheeled fans. And his latest render, the BMW S1000 “Lightburner” concept doesn’t disappoint, either.

Based off the BMW S1000R streetfighter, Bezzi sees another naked model in the BMW stable – one that would roll on 16″ rear wheel, and have a 230 sized tire mounted to it.

We are not sure what purpose a 16″ rear wheel would serve on a street bike, or if you could even find good street rubber in a 230 size, but the visual affect of the Lightburner is what draws us to this design.

Rocking a red seat with the two-tone blue and silver paint, the Oberdan’s creation screams BMW racing.

The headlight looks like something straight off the Yamaha MT-03, and the fairings and tail section have a certain Aprilia Tuono V4 vibe to them – not exactly bad motorcycles to channel inspiration from, if we do say so ourselves.

Maybe this is the bike that should have been the BMW S1000R, with some more practical choices in the tire and wheel department, of course.
