BMW shows an electric bike!

BMW has just presented an S1000RR powered by an electric motor, and called it the eRR.

Not much else is known about this concept. We can only assume that BMW is getting serious about developing an electric motorcycle. While Harley Davidson created a whole new bike to test electrification, BMW has gone the easy way and used an existing model, the S1000RR, and replaced the ICE engine with an electric drive train.

Based on its looks, the BMW eRR might offer some competition to the Energica Ego and the Lightning LS 218. It remains to be seen though if the eRR will ever be produced.
