We don’t have much to go on in terms of technical or performance specifications, but the pre-EICMA reveal of the upcoming eRR electric super bike has made one thing perfectly clear: BMW’s motorcycle division wants in on the EV act.
The success of the BMW car division’s all-electric/hybrid “i” line — as well as BMW Motorrad’s own success with its electric scooters — is undisputed. The i8 super car is a sellout success, commanding surging prices in the aftermarket, while the tiny i3 represents nearly 10% of BMW car sales in North America. It should come as no surprise, then, that an electric bike is in the works. This bike, built in collaboration with the Technical University of Munich, explores one possible direction BMW could take when it comes to electric motorcycles.
You can see more pictures of the BMW eRR electric motorcycle in the photo gallery, below. We’ll bring you more BMW news from EICMA as it develops.
