In the ever-evolving world of electric vehicles, BMW Motorrad is making its mark with the all-new BMW CE 02, an electric motorbike designed specifically for navigating the urban jungle. Combining style, performance, and advanced technology, the CE 02 aims to revolutionize the way we commute in cities.
Power and Performance
At the heart of the CE 02 is its powerful electric motor, capable of delivering up to 15 horsepower. Equipped with two 1.96-kWh batteries, this compact motorbike offers an estimated driving range of approximately 56 miles on a single charge. This means that riders can zip around town with confidence, knowing they have ample power to reach their destination. One notable addition is the introduction of smart glasses, which provide riders with essential information, such as speed and turn-by-turn navigation, directly in their line of sight.
Design Meets Function
The CE 02’s design is also a standout feature. It boasts a street-smart appearance that blends seamlessly into urban settings. While BMW refers to it as an ‘e-parkour,’ the CE 02’s style is a perfect fit for city streets, offering a combination of practicality and aesthetic appeal. For those concerned about charging, the CE 02 comes with a standard 0.9-kW home charging adapter. However, riders can upgrade to the optional 1.5-kW charger for faster charging times, reducing downtime and increasing convenience.
Pricing, Options, and Release Date
While pricing details for the CE 02’s options have yet to be announced, the starting price is expected to be around $8,200, positioning it as an accessible choice for urban commuters. With the optional Highline package, which includes features like Bluetooth phone connectivity, a smartphone holder, heated hand grips, and an upgraded seat, the CE 02 offers enhanced comfort and convenience. BMW Motorrad plans to release the CE 02 in early 2024, offering city dwellers a stylish and eco-friendly alternative for navigating bustling streets.
