If you ever wondered what an BMW Motorrad e-bike or electric motorcycle would look like, now we have the answer with the Vision DC Roadster. Specifically, BMW Motorrad Vision DC Roadster has just been introduced as a concept car for the public to visualize how the German automaker will make electric motorbikes in the future: pit design, many technologies and of course is strong.
Vision DC Roadster takes on the look of the naked vehicle and adds more futuristic details. The most striking and eye-catching is definitely the cluster of LED lights in front of 3D graphics and the naked front right in front of the east-facing, while the taillights include 2 symmetrical arrays arranged just below the saddle. Perhaps because it is still a concept, the Vision DC Roadster provides information to the driver through a small digital screen.
Meanwhile, the front suspension is the double Hossack type, or Duolever according to BMW Motorrad's call, which uses the letter A indirectly linked to the single fork with the advantage of a flexible, main control feeling. tall body.
BMW Motorrad was daring to remove the traditional rib cage frame to use solid aluminum CNC as the main frame for the electric motorcycle. Next, replacing the 2-cylinder horizontal boxer engine with the gas tank is a large battery pack vertically along the body. Under the battery assembly is an electric motor that provides traction for the rear wheels through the post-axle inside the single-grab.
A special feature of the design of the Vision DC Roadster is that the two components look like a fan that plays a cooling role on both sides of the body. When preparing for operation, they will be opened outwards to push the wind into the engine compartment and the battery more. The appearance of these two details is also somewhat reminiscent of the two characteristic muscle crest on the BMW R nineT.
BMW Motorrad has not yet announced the performance of the Vision DC Roadster as well as plans related to other electric motorbikes. What do you think of the screeching of electric motors in the video above, can it replace the deep bass of today's internal combustion engines?
