BMW’S NEW ELEC­TRIC SCOOT

Motorcycle News (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

BMW have just re­leased their own kick-scooter – the X2c­ity. De­signed in con­junc­tion with ZEG, the X2c­ity is pow­ered by an elec­tric mo­tor and can reach speeds of up to 16mph with a range of up to 20 miles. Clas­si­fied as a Ped­elec25, which means it can be rid­den by any­one over the age of 14 in Europe and doesn’t re­quire a crash hel­met to be worn or the rider to have a driv­ing li­cence – but it’s not clear if that will be the case here. The X2c­ity is ex­pected to cost less than £2500, weighs un­der 20kg and takes 2.5 hours to fully recharge. Strangely, BMW have opted not to sell the X2c­ity through their dealer net­work and in­stead it can be bought via the on­line shop of KETTLER Alu-rad by the end of 2017.

It’s nice… but the best guess on price is ‘un­der £2500’
