BMW’s Motorrad division has been pumping out some wild ideas over the previous couple of years because the bigger firm turns its consideration in the direction of electrical autos. It’s newest can also be the so far, however nonetheless appears to be like extraordinarily cool: the CE 02 mini-bike.

Debuted this week forward of the IAA Mobility convention in Germany, the CE 02 is a tiny two-wheeler that borrows a few of the futuristic vibes BMW has been honing for its bigger idea bikes — together with the CE 04, which is definitely going into manufacturing. Clad in silver and black and “technoid typography,” the minimalist design appears to be like prefer it got here proper off the set of a sci-fi film.

The CE 02 has an 11kW belt-drive motor, which may help the bike attain a high pace of round 90 kilometers per hour (about 56 miles per hour). BMW isn’t sharing the battery capability, however claims the CE 02 can go about 90 kilometers on a full cost.

There are not any pedals, however BMW says there shall be footrests — although within the pictures, the one footrest that anybody is utilizing is a skateboard clipped to the underside of the bike. (Hey, it’s an idea!) A round LED headlight lights the way in which, whereas a small show between the handlebars serves up the fundamental info like pace and battery standing. “Otherwise, the technology is deliberately restrained,” BMW says. The entire bundle weighs 120 kilograms (about 265 kilos).

There’s no scarcity of slick-looking electrical mopeds and mini-bikes today — Super73 has raised hundreds of thousands of {dollars} on the concept alone — however BMW’s CE 02 might in all probability discover some success if the corporate decides to make it. It’s received the appears to be like, and it sounds loads succesful sufficient for cruising via a metropolis.
