BMW Concept C is the future of scooters as defined by BMW Motorrad (Motorcycle in German). BMW believes the future mobility in mega-cities has very special demands and as always they working on a solution.

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.
