BMW has built a concept bike, in order to demonstrate what a new class of motorcycles might look like.
It’s a mixture between a scooter and a motorcycle; a vehicle that appears similar to the Honda New Mid Concept also unveiled at the EICMA 2010 motorcycle show.
It combines the best of these two. It’s called the Concept C as "C" stands for "commuter". It has the conceptional comfort of a scooter and the agility of a motorcycle.
The driving force behind BMW Concept C scooter is provided by a new, two-cylinder inline engine in conjunction with CVT (continuously variable transmission). Engine power, torque, and therefore performance would be positioned towards the top of the segment.
