2017 BMW C evolution


NOW ARRIVING... Call 415-503-9954 or e-mail us at sales@bmwmotorcycle.com to secure your C evolution before they sell out! Currently, C-evolutions are only being sold in California and less than 50 model year 2017's will be available. 2018's will be available in the coming months but will feature no design or technical changes and will also be available in very limited quantities.

BMW is leading the charge of electric two-wheeled transportation with the new C evolution which is the ideal urban mobility solution for today and tomorrow. If you have never experienced the performance and thrill of an electric motorcycle or scooter, now is the time.

Charged up propulsion.

Contrary to conventional internal combustion engines, the C evolution's electric engine provides peak torque from a standstill, instead gradually building up to the peak torque. With peak output of 48 hp and 53 lb-ft of torque at the crankshaft, this machine provides immediate riding pleasure. The maximum speed is electonically limited to 80 mph to ensure optimized power consumption and range. With acceleration from 0-30 mph in only 2.8 seconds, you'll quickly leave the traffic behind when the light turns green.

More range, more riding pleasure.

The C evolution uses the newest generation of battery modules. They are equivalent to those used in the BMW i3 and enable the C evolution to achieve a range of up to 99 miles. The battery can be charged with its integrated charger at a common 110-volt household socket or with a fast-charge cable at a 220-volt charging station or optional household wall box.

A design that embodies the future.

The shape of the C evolution is at first sight typical of BMW Motorrad. LED lights and a big TFT display reflect BMW's technological leadership, while the striking split-face fairing shares its DNA with the rest of the BMW Motorrad family. A statement is set by the new color-Ionic Silver Metallic with an Electric Green accent color. The graphic on the side covering ass to the electric scooter's modern appearance. High-quality fit, finish and attention to detail complete the design elements of the C evolution.
