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.

    Innovative? Hmmm. I’ve seen lots of machines that look just like this… in wrecking yards. Mr. Bezzi appears to be a card-carrying member of the CSBC school of design. (That’s “Crashed Sport Bike Carcass”). This really is nothing more than an S1000 with its fairing removed. Judge for yourself:

    Yeah but that’s what a streetfighter is. A sports bike with its fairing removed.
