The BMW C1 was a scooter with a roof made by Bertone for the German Company, which, compared to other scooters, offered increased protection from the elements and extra safety. The rider was grasped by a car-type seat with a four-point seatbelt and a feet-forward position.

The scooter was introduced in 2000 and was available throughout the European market, but unfortunately, the sales didn't go as expected, and it was removed from production in 2002. Later, in 2009, the manufacturer introduced the C1-E electric version as a concept vehicle.

The BMW C1 scooter was available from 2000 with a 125cc engine, and from 2001, a 200cc model was added. In addition, the bike was available with four trim lines, including the Base, Family's Friend, Executive, and Williams.

The Base version was stock, the Family's Friend version packed the same features as the base model with an extra luggage attachment kit and a storage compartment in the front fairing, and the Executive model packed the same features as the Family's Friend version with an extra reading light and a phone holder. The Williams model had the features of the Executive version with a unique paint scheme.

The 2000 BMW C1 had installed at its core a 124cc four-stroke single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine with an electric injection system, boasting 15 hp at 9,259 rpm and 12 Nm (8.8 lb-ft) torque at 6,500 rpm.
