EICMA 2010: BMW Concept C [Live Photos]
text size: A- A+
Concept C is easily identifiable as being part of the BMW Motorrad Family by its split face, high rear-end and close cut windscreen. In the style of bigger, sportier BMW models, such as the S 1000 RR, Concept C also features a twin-tipped front spoiler. Integrated into the face paneling is an LED headlamp, capable of casting its light further than ever before.
Unlike other big scooters presented up to now, Concept C comes with a sleeker line conferring it a more dynamic and sporty look. The body lines converge toward the rear, emphasizing the vehicle's active riding character. The high rear end accents the lightness and agility of Concept C's powerful two-cylinder engine.
The vitality and forcefulness of the two cylinder inline engine is quenched with the help of the continuously variable transmission (CVT). Engine power, torque and therefore performance are smoothly distributed throughout the entire rev range to provide smooth acceleration.
The functional side of this scooter is present through stylish design elements like the aluminum look of the bash plates with the air intake borrowed from the BMW GS. The black chromium of the suspension and frame parts synergize with the aluminum chromium, silver, and blue paintwork of the body parts.
Along with a big scooter realized in the Concept C style, BMW will also deliver a range of rider equipment. The development of a big scooter will also include a suitable storage space concept.

I hope BMW's new scooter will have engine braking like the Burgman and saddle bags with a box on the rear which has a comfortable back rest.
