BMW’s C-Evo scooter is getting some major work for 2017 – mostly centred around the three biggest problems that have dogged the big plug-in scoot so far; speed, battery and range.

Two versions of the super scoot have been shown at the Paris show. The C now comes in a 125cc equivalent (11kW version which is headed for Europe only) and a more powerful (called Long Range) option which is going to able to max out at an electronically-limited 80mph top whack (previously the top speed was 74) . The 125cc-version will be maxxed out at 74mph. Price is likely to stay around the £13,000 marque.



The battery is apparently going to take less time to charge from empty to full and on that full-on charge the small scooter version will still be able to do about 60 miles of riding whilst the Long Range option will be good for 100 miles (160 km).
