We know BMW K100 as a motorcycle for its comfort, reliability and sturdiness. Impuls had a different vision of this bike. No suitcases, no windshields, no heated grips, no ABS, no comfort. Stripped down to the absolute necessities of a motorcycle the K101 still reflects the key design elements of the original K100 with a modern interpretation that is emphasized by the art of Fabian Gatermann.

With the raw essentials of the BMW exposed, especially the engine which haters never got tired calling “the flying brick”, all that remains is a beautiful piece of machinery.

Fabian Gatermann created a 3D model of the motorcycle and calculated the polygons. Through manual iteration he then drew the polygons back onto the motorcycle with ink.

With the k101 project the makers are starting a new fusion between art and motorcycles. The bike is released in an exclusive edition of three, two of which have already been sold.
