FrontRunners: BMW's Bike

The Q8.R, the fastest BMW without an engine, has arrived. In the spirit of high-performance racing, BMW (888. 269.6654, www.bmw-online.com) debuts its ultimate racing cycle—with a price starting at $3,995 —in colors echoing the original white and blue paint scheme of the BMW-Williams’ Formula 1 car, driven by Juan-Pablos Montoya and Ralf Shumacher.

Designed for competitive bicycle racing, this 18-speed, ultralightweight aluminum tubular frame racing bike weighs only 17 pounds and accommodates your specific body type for a precise fit. The highly durable front fork system, comprised of hardwearing aerospace materials such as carbon fiber, absorbs shock off the road and makes for an incredibly smooth ride.
