The BMW C Evolution motorbike is a fully electric bike that is eco-friendly and energy-efficient but still offers a mean ride and a stylish, eye-catching design.

The bike is equipped with a 47 horsepower electric motor high-voltage battery. This should offer a range of up to 100 kilometers without charge in 'road mode,' with higher ranges allowed for in the bike's alternative 'ECO pro' zero-emission mode.

In road mode, users are granted maximum acceleration capabilities, 50% energy restoration when coasting and full generation when braking. In ECO pro mode however, acceleration and energy consumption are restricted and a greater amount of energy is saved.

In terms of acceleration, the BMW C Evolution can zoom from a still position to 50 km/h in just 2.7 seconds without making so much as a whimper of sound. The bike is also featured with a reversing aid for easy reversing, heated handlebar grips and a variety of other bells and whistles that make it a functional and desirable e-bike.
