    Interesting, very interesting in a good way.

    It looks like ‘brace yourself for takeoff because I’m not stopping until the salt flats or the gas runs out, whatever comes first.’

    Thanks for sharing.

    I think aluminum is too soft and marks too easily, correct?

    Wow! A 771 lb. "airplane motorcycle" with a claimed top speed of 124 mph.

    Compare and contrast with the real deal: http://gearpatrol.com/2013/05/13/the...of-burt-munro/

    Hôtel National des Invalides, Paris


    Partner of the 29th international automobile festival, Bell & Ross unveils a legendary airplane-motorcycle,

    THE B-ROCKET.


    The 29th Festival Automobile International sets the standard in the world of design and automotive. The Hôtel des Invalides hosted the event, just beside its Dome.

    Bell & Ross, partner of the official ceremony, has renewed its support for the eighth consecutive year to this event, associating design, trends and prestigious automotive.

    Bell & Ross offered an exclusive preview of the B-Rocket, its neo-retro concept-bike, to fine mechanical lovers. Its aerodynamic lines are halfway inspired by speed-bikes and the 60's experimental US aviation.

    More than a motorcycle, the B-Rocket is a legendary engine produced with Shaw Harley-Davidson. The watchmaking part of the B-Rocket concept will be unveiled at Baselworld, the International Watch and Jewelry show, organized from March 27th to April 3rd in Basel, Switzerland.

    Member of the jury, Carlos A. Rosillo, CEO of Bell & Ross, rewarded the prestigious Palme d'Or to Vincent Bolloré for his Autolib' project (self-service electric cars).

    About 600 personalities - designers, car manufacturers, media and members of the Jury - attended the ceremony. On this occasion, exceptional Concept Cars were introduced - some of them in worldwide exclusivity. A total of 14 Grands Prix, including the Palme d'Or, were awarded by the jury of the Festival to personalities and companies celebrating their talents.

    My guess would be:

    A Grey PVD 01.

    Mat Black dial and white printed figures.

    A splash of the colour Red between 10 and 11, to make the dial ‘Pop’ and also resemble the “Red Line”.

    It would contain a Tachometer feature.

    Printed on the face:

    “BR01” in white.

    “B-Rocket” in Red.

    And “Ltd” in white.


    These are my guesses.

    Last sunday, a lovely morning, bright sun outside. Lets go to the concept cars exhibition to discover beautiful cars and the BR BRocket.




    In front of the venue, you can see visitors' car



    entered the hall looking for the BR booth, took the time to look at other concept that talk to me






    Finally found the booth, whose moto and watches are attracting a lot of people




    I can now discover that interesting concept







    Everybody has different taste and can love it or not, my opinion is that the concept is very well made ,that rocketeer neo-retro look is awesome, and that im really excited to discover the watch project underneath> >> Baselworld 2014

    2 main points for me. Its typical Harley VTwin engine, and that wing which is the ultimate detail IMO.
