The bike, called the Konzept eRR, has an entirely electric powerplant set into a pretty conventional chassis.

Details about the bike relating to speed, charge times, longevity etc are yet to be released by BMW but according to Head of BMW Motorrad Stephen Schaller, the bike is mostly about instant acceleration.

He said:  “Since the market launch, the RR is giving the creeps to motorsport athletes. If it’s acceleration, handling or topspeed – the RR is setting standards. However, if acceleration on the first metres up to 50, 60 kph, is the point, the RR’s 199bhp has to admit defeat by another BMW product: the C evolution scooter with its electric drive.

“So we asked ourselves: What happens when combining a sport motorcycle and an electric drive? The experimental vehicle eRR brings the topic zero emission and electric drive on a new, more fascinating level.”
