And to make sure the youth sees it, BMW unveiled the CE 02 concept on….you guessed it, TikTok!

BMW Motorrad is usually synonymous with fast sport bikes and big ADVs. But in an attempt to change this image, the German two-wheeler giant has unveiled its CE 02 electric scooter concept by posting a flashy video on TikTok.

Aimed at urban mobility for the youth, the scooter looks rather quirky with its chunky 15-inch tyres and tall stance with a low 730mm seat. There’s barely any bodywork and instead, the battery itself has ‘CE 02’ graphics printed on it. 

An element that we find particularly interesting is the bracket under the body which can be used as storage space. BMW also claims you can slide an actual skateboard through it and use it to rest your feet while riding. How cool!

Thanks to the tall handlebar and flat silicone bench seat, the riding posture appears comfortable and upright too. And since no foot controls are needed, one can slide all the way back or forth, allowing different sitting positions. However, we don’t think the seat is long enough to hold two people, even if they’re the skinny types.

The BMW CE 02 comes shod with premium components like a quad-LED headlamp, single disc brake at both ends, a beefy USD fork, and a single-sided swingarm. In the name of an instrument cluster, you get a small colour LCD, which looks to have navigation compatibility. 

Since this is a concept, BMW hasn’t given away its full specifications. What we do know is that it has a peak power output of 11kW, which can propel it to a top speed of 90kmph. And it can take you 90km on a full charge. Its weight is claimed to be 120kg, which is pretty decent.

The CE 02 concept does sound pretty impressive. But don’t get your hopes high as this might not ever make it to India. And even if it does, it will cost a bomb. Planning to buy an electric scooter? You can check out the Ola S1 and the Simple One instead.
