Scooter-BMW Motorrad division, the Concept C scooter
After the MINI E Scooter Concept, BMW returns today with their own-branded scooter: BMW Concept C. Built by the BMW Motorrad division, the Concept C scooter extends BMW’s reach into future mobility.
BMW Motorrad brings a solution to the table in a concept form at this stage.
At a recent trade show in Italy, BMW’s motorcycle division showcased a new scooter concept, dubbed the Concept C.
It appears that BMW is refocusing its energies on selling scooters. BMW had displayed a Mini-branded electric scooter at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.
The “C” nomenclature isn’t just a reference to the C1, BMW's previous scooter venture. BMW considers these small, efficient two-wheelers as a terrific means for personal transportation in congested urban areas
BMW's concept brings sexy to the scooter.
Leave it to BMW's Motorrad division to make a scooter that's absolutely stunning.
The Concept C does away with your typical scooter stylings.
At 2010 EICMA show in Milan, BMW unveiled their first Concept C scooter. “C” letter stands for commuter and the new Concept is a study of a sporty premium scooter that previews the brand’s enter in the big scooter segment.
In the near future, BMW Motorrad division plans to launch two premium models of the the Concept C both with internal combustion engines.
BMW Concept C incorporated many design elements from Motorrad models, including the “split face” with integrated LED headlamp. Unlike the L-shaped profile of most big scooters with their predominantly vertical body lines and colour scheme, the Concept’s body lines sweep up to the rear, forming a “high-tail” rear section that emphasises lightness and agility.
Braking is taken care of by dual front discs with GP-style, radial-mount callipers and a single rear disc with BMW’s proven antilock braking system.
