BMW has released several electric motorcycle and electric scooter concepts over the last few years. To the company’s credit, they’ve actually brought some of their wild ideas to production. Now BMW has a new electric motorcycle concept known as the CE 02 that could actually make it to the streets.

Just revealed today, the BMW CE 02 concept is designed as an urban electric motorbike that falls somewhere between an electric scooter and electric motorcycle.

This isn’t just some slow, urban 28 mph (45 km/h) bike though. It’s actually fast enough for anything an urban rider can throw at it, featuring a top speed of 56 mph (90 km/h).

It also touts decent range for an urban ride at 56 miles (90 km). Again, that’s probably more than enough for most city riding. And based on how comfortable that seat looks, I imagine the bike will be used for mostly short city hops anyways.

The CE 02 is powered by an 11 kW (15 hp) motor, putting it in a similar class to other lightweight urban electric motorcycles such as the upcoming SONDORS Metacycle.
