Last May, the BMW Group announced its plan to make 50% of all its manufactured vehicles and motorcycles all-electric by 2030. That means, more and more electric motorcycles like the CE 04 will be gracing BMW Motorrad showrooms soon.
BMW’s latest addition is the CE 02 concept electric motorcycle built for urban mobility.
According to BMW, their concept CE 02 is “a new interpretation of smart, urban single-track mobility one week before the IAA Mobility 2021. The electric vehicle concept, which is neither a classic motorcycle nor a scooter, is an exciting and highly emotional mobility offer.”
With its compact dimensions and youthful proportions, it also clearly appeals to a new target group: people aged 16 and over, who have not ridden a motorbike before but are open to new experiences, smart technology and, above all, combining mobility with fun.
As a lightweight electric vehicle weighing about 120 kg, the BMW Motorrad Concept CE 02 is ideal for urban use, offering high fun factor as well as straightforward yet stylish commuting. The 11 kW of output and all the torque available from standstill allow for fast acceleration at traffic lights. A top speed of 90 km/h and a range of 90 km make it easy to get from A to B – and back again – even in heavy city traffic.
Technically, the CE 02 concept is still in the development stage, so expect a few more improvements before it hits the showroom. With its 90 kilometers per hour top speed, it can go as fast as most underbone motorcycles in the country today.
