Spanish motorcycle manufacturer, Derbi, have always had innovative approaches to motorcycle designs. They have developed two prototypes based on their successful Mulhacen motorcycle range, that hopefully will see the light of day shortly.

Imagine a motorcycle with built-in cameras and a TV screen. Let your imagination run wild !

Here's a totally innovative approach for a motorcycle designer. Place cameras around your motorcycle, and a small TV screen, and allow the biker to record their ride. It's called the Derbi Mulhacen 659 X-Vision.

Derbi says this is more than a version, this is basically a concept. A concept that Derbi is developing, that it wants to extend to its whole range: 360º vision.

The "X" in X-Vision represents the four directions in which its micro-cameras can focus. An LCD screen (with a memory function) on the handlebars lets you see the world surrounding you and record it.

In fact, with this system, the biker can record their motorcycle rides, saving them and organizing them on their computer (or upload them to the internet)

The definition "accessory" falls slightly short:- this is a concept, a new way of experiencing your motorcycle, an emotional, new venture: letting you get creative with your Derbi.

Imagine filming your ride in the Dolomites or the twisties at the "Tail of the Dragon" at Deals gap ? Record it from every angle ! Later at home, edit the video, inserting the best clips, and make a professional video !

Imagine how many videos will be shown in the likes of YouTube.com ? Now, you don't need to get a helmet camera, you've got built-in cameras on your motorcycle !

In this specific version Derbi presents the bike in an original yellow version decorated with inked, graphic elements.
