BMW Motorrad is following in the wheel prints of smart and MINI by producing its own e-scooter concept. Unlike the current crop of electrically-powered scooters this BMW concept can be used for much more than simply buzzing around town on. Thanks to its impressive output its performance is comparable to that of a 600 cc combustion-engined scooter, and high capacity battery allows a range of over 100 kilometres.

In an effort to achieve better performance, the usual ‘hub motor with direct drive’ layout has been scrapped to make way for a larger unit located behind the battery casing. Drive is sent to a toothed pulley mounted at the swinging fork pivot – then onto the rear wheel via a roller chain.
