In 2014, the German motorcycle maker introduced the BMW C EVOLUTION, an electric scooter that marked the start of a new chapter for BMW Motorrad in the urban mobility segment.

The two gasoline-powered scooters, C 600 Sport and C 650 GT have already combined the excellent ride qualities of a motorcycle with the agility and comfort of a scooter. The C EVOLUTION took everything further by combining riding fun and dynamism with zero-emissions performance for a new two-wheel experience.

One notable feature of the C EVOLUTION was the energy regeneration never seen on a single-track vehicle. The regeneration was made automatically when coasting with the throttle closed and when the brakes were used.

The electric scooter was available with Torque Control Assist (TCA), similar to the Automatic Stability Control (ASC) found on BMW combustion motorcycles. The system limits the torque depending on the slip at the rear wheel.

The 2014 BMW C EVOLUTION was powered by a drive train swing arm with a liquid-cooled alternator that delivered an output power of 48 hp at 4,850 rpm and 72 Nm (53 lb-ft) torque at 4,500 rpm.

Some other notable features included four riding modes, Road, Eco Pro, Sail, and Dynamic, a high-voltage battery with air cooling, a powerful ABS braking system, a large TFT color display, an LED daytime running light and side light, and reversing aid for easy maneuvering.
