Designer Mehmet Doruk Erdem created the BMW Titan concept for a single reason: to break the 376 mph land speed record for motorcycles. Consequently, the build's aerodynamic shape was made to mimic the hydrodynamics of a shark, complete with an airtight front end, featuring a nose that reduces resistance while also funneling air to the gill-like air intakes. The turbo-powered engine is connected to the rear tire via an enclosed swingarm, and the enclosed cockpit has an instrument cluster that displays the suspension status, cooling system operation, area specific temperatures and more.
