Almost Successful.

Via: nytimes
Essentially a 125- or 176-cc motorcycle with seat belts and an integrated roof and roll cage, the BMW C1 was designed to be ridden without a helmet. But some European countries (including Great Britain and Sweden) balked at allowing helmet-free riding, and C1 sales (which totaled more than 20,000) stalled. BMW ended production in 2002.

The C 1 will be built in Italy by Bertone Carrozzeria, a specialty manufacturer, but BMW claims credit for the C 1 concept and design -- something the Italians probably don't mind. So their might be problem with them..
