New Delhi: BMW Motorrad recently unveiled the Concept CE 02 electric mini-bike with design innovation at a level the company has not had before.
The electric vehicle concept is neither a classic motorcycle nor a scooter, and is an exciting and highly emotional mobility offer. The vehicle gives an output of 11 kW for driving licence class from A1 (ECE) and a range of approx. 90 km (according to WMTC). Its height is 730 mm and the disc wheels come with 15-inch front and rear, the company said.
Edgar Heinrich, head of design, BMW Motorrad, said, “At the first glance, there is little about the BMW Motorrad Concept CE 02 that is typically BMW Motorrad – it’s something completely new. We want to strive for something novel and be pioneers – which is what we’ve proven ourselves capable of with various projects in the past.”
“The Concept CE 02 features new proportions and modern forms of single-track mobility in an urban environment. In addition, we wanted to achieve a level of design innovation that we have not had before at this level. Straightforward use was important, but above all the emotional component was crucial, as well as riding fun,” he added.
Alexander Buckan, head of vehicle design, BMW Motorrad, said, “We wanted to develop an easily accessible two-wheeler for everyone who wants to be mobile and independent.”
“There are stickers, tapes and other forms of customisation that make it quite clear to everyone that it belongs to you. It embodies youthful freedom and a carefree spirit – rather like a skateboard on two wheels,” he added.
The rear light comprises two small, translucent LED leaves that are fixed to the left and right of the rear seat. A small colour screen on the handlebars provides basic display functionality: this is connected via a visible, visually deliberately overemphasised cable harness, the company said.
BMW Motorrad concept CE 02 comes in black/silver colour schemes.
