BMWs electric S1000RR revealed

BMWs electric S1000RR revealed

HERE'S BMW's just-unveiled electric superbike using the chassis of an S1000RR.

Called the eRR, it's been created to unite the high-speed performance of the S1000RR with the apparently even better 0-30mph acceleration of BMW's electric scooter, the C evolution.

BMW Motorrad head Stephan Schaller said the S1000RR was 'setting standards' in sport for acceleration, top speed and handling, adding: 'However, if acceleration on the first metres, up to 50 [or] 60kph, is the point, the RR’s 199hp have to admit defeat by another BMW product: the C evolution with its electric drive.

'We asked ourselves: what happens when combining a sport motorcycle and an electric drive?'

BMW is calling the eRR an 'experimental vehicle' and took the unusual step of revealing it in a corporate news announcement, which said: 'BMW Motorrad will announce technical details of the eRR at a later date.'
