Now that the C Evolution has made its official debut, here’s a look at the bike in action.
What is your take? Does this first mass-produced electric scooter turn your wheels?
Looking forward to a side by side comparison with BMW’s gas powered scooters.
The torque of this E-scooter is nothing to mess with and makes it an entirely different ride than anything before.
Well, it looks like a typical BMW in that it’ll cost plenty, feel great to ride, and be great to live with – except for the major clanger: has BMW heard of “range anxiety”? I mean the Zero S 8.5 motorbike (which has a similar capacity motor), weighs about 100kg LESS, but has far GREATER range. It seems they have work to do on the fundamentals.
Well that weight difference would certainly make more range easier. I think BMW is getting their feet wet here, and beyond that, have a very specific positioning in mind with the C Evolution. In particular, very city-focused where long range isn’t really needed. Having known people who’ve actually owned the Vectrix, as few as 30 miles range is completely viable for daily city use.
