The 2011 BMW Concept C scooter was unveiled at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan Italy.

The big scooter is immediately recognizable as a member of the BMW Motorrad family as the "split face" front fairing is reminiscent of the S 1000 RR, not to mention the twin-tipped front spoiler.

The functional side of this scooter is expressed in stylish design elements, such as the aluminum look of the bash plates with the air intake adopted from the BMW GS.

BMW high-quality elegance is born by finely worked details, such as the fuel tank cover reminiscent of aircraft and the short, sporty muffler. The visionary facet of Concept C is presented with the tires with flanks and treads of blue.

The BMW features a highly complex monolever mechanism with hollowed-out shaft connected to a suspension strut visible from the outside. In this instance, front-wheel control takes the form of an upside down fork.

The stable twin disc brake at the front features two radial brake calipers that also underscore the dynamic sportiness of Concept C. In addition, the single disc brake at the rear and the BMW Motorrad ABS provide the maximum possible safety during braking maneuvers.

The dynamic and equally comfortable driving force behind Concept C is provided by a new, two-cylinder inline engine in conjunction with CVT (continuously variable transmission). Engine power, torque, and therefore performance will be moving towards the top of the segment.

Deliberate absence of conventional rear view mirrors are replaced in Concept C with two video cameras in the rear. The cameras project to two LCD monitors in the cockpit. The road speed, engine speed, and other data appear on a third LCD display integrated at the center of the cockpit.

In BMW Motorrad tradition, the development of a big scooter will also include a suitable stowage space concept.
