Tech specs will be released at a later date.

The BMW eRR experimental pure electric superbike made a surprise entry at the G310 R street fighter unveiling event. The motorcycle which is based on the S 1000 RR is created in association with University of Munich.

BMW Motorrad has announced that technical specifications of the motorcycle will be released at a later date. Talking about the futuristic concept,¬†Stephan Schaller, Head of BMW Motorrad, said that the S 1000 RR is setting in¬†acceleration, handling and top speed but when it comes to initial acceleration from rest to up to 60 kmph, the company’s C Evolution electric motor easily defeats the superbike. This got the BMW engineers wondering what happens when combining a sport motorcycle and an electric drive.

Expect a liquid-cooled electric motor supported by an air-cooled li-ion better pack on board.

The eRR electric superbike concept derives its chassis and suspension from the S 1000 RR. Visually, there are a few minor variations such as lack of headlamps, a larger windscreen and missing exhaust system.

Going by the C Evolution scooter, we expect the eRR to feature a liquid-cooled electric motor deriving electricity from an air-cooled li-ion battery pack. Considering that the BMW eRR is described as an experimental vehicle, we don’t expect it to go on sale in the near future.
