BMW eRR Supersport - Electric Powered Motorcycle

BMW is known for its ventures in electric vehicles. The Bavarian brand has shown its electric automobile vision with its BMW i3 and i8 that feature full electric power, an aluminum chassis and a carbon-fiber passenger cabin.

BMW Motorrad is also in the game with it’s C evolution electric-powered scooters. But BMW Motorrad is going to take it one step further with the new eRR, an electric supersport that is being created with the Technical University of Munich.

The BMW eRR uses the design and chassis technology found on the BMW S1000RR, but features an all-electric platform. Not many details are released of this writing, but BMW Motorrad is expected to release them shortly.

Stephan Schaller, Head of BMW Motorrad, says: “Since their market launch, the RR is giving the creeps to motorsport athletes. If acceleration, handling or top speed – the RR is setting standards. However, if acceleration on the first meters, up to 50, 60 kph, is the point, the RR’s 199 base horsepower have to admit defeat by another BMW product: the C evolution with its electric drive.

“We asked ourselves: What happens when combining a sport motorcycle and an electric drive? The experimental vehicle BMW eRR brings the topic zero emission and electric drive on a new, more fascinating level.”
