BMW to Debut Two New Maxi Scooters at EICMA 2011

It looks like all the stir caused by the launch of BMW’s new sub-brand called BMW i created the perfect venue for the German brand to reveal another ambitious plan it has in mind for the near future. We are talking hear about two new maxi-scooters bearing the famous BMW logo that are to hit the streets sometime in 2012.

In fact, BMW Motorrad Vice President Hermann Bohrer has confirmed the two scooters will debut at the 2011 EICMA show in Milan, while speaking at a launch event for the BMW K1600GT in South Africa.

Bohrer however made no mention of an electric model. But considering the recent unveil of the new BMW i sub-brand for its electric automobiles, and the Scooter C concept presented at the 2010 EICMA event, a future electric BMW iScooter should also be expected.

In fact, chances are that the two scooters will be closely related to the Concept C, such as borrowing the chassis, suspension and even some elements of the styling.

We’ll remind you that the Concept C comes with a split face, high rear-end and close cut windscreen, as well as 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.
