Fully-electric motorcycles are becoming more common. However, BMW Motorrad seems in no hurry to bring to market their own electric bikes. Head of BMW Motorrad, Dr. Markus Schramm said that electric motorcycles make sense in an urban setting, but requires careful work on the new model.
“As the DC Roadster Vision concept, we consider the possibility of producing electric bike”, he said. – “It is possible that in five years will be an electric BMW motorcycle. However, we are not yet ready to offer a solution in segments, rounds, SUVs and sports”.
DC BMW Vision Roadster was presented at NEXTGen in June 2019. the transfer of power through the rear wheel is a cylindrical motor. Motorcycle design differs from the rest of the range, and it is precisely known that the production version of this concept will never appear.
“I am convinced that the motorcycle as a product is becoming more and more important – not for commuting, and for recreation,” added Schramm.
