The new BMW Motorrad X2City bring fresh air to BMW Group, specifically to the segment of mobility on two wheels without emissions. The electric auxiliary motor scooter is light and compact and reaches its destination regardless of traffic jams, limited parking space and public transport schedules.
The BMW Motorrad X2City is the result of the collaboration between BMW Motorrad and ZEG, with its brands Kettler, Bulls, Pegasus, Hercules and others. The skateboard is therefore not distributed through the network of Official BMW Motorrad Dealers, but through selected bike shops and the online shop of KETTLER AluRad GmbH. The maintenance and warranty process is also managed by the bicycle store.
Thanks to its weight of only 20 kilograms and the foldable steering unit, the BMW Motorrad X2City can easily be transported in the trunk of a car. It is the ideal solution for spontaneous and comfortable mobility in areas that cannot be reached by other means of transport.
With its small dimensions, the BMW Motorrad X2City is even smaller than a folding bike. However, it also includes an auxiliary electric motor in the rear wheel to make moving more comfortable and fun.
The brushless hub motor provides efficient support and accelerates the BMW Motorrad X2City up to 25 km/h. The control unit on the handlebar offers five speeds (8, 12, 16, 20 and 25 km / h). For safety reasons, the electric motor is only activated when the speed of 6 km / h is reached. In addition, it can be turned off at any time with a switch on the brake lever. In this way, the electrical support is interrupted.
A B408 Wh lithium-ion battery powers the electric motor. It is housed in a splash and rain proof box, located under the running boards, which is integrated into the frame, from which it can be easily removed. A battery management system with built-in power electronics guarantees a range of 25-35 km in daily use. The The battery is charged using an ordinary household socket and it takes about 2,5 hours to charge the empty battery.
The large, wide wheels are equipped with robust tires that provide excellent grip and ensure a safe and comfortable ride even off the road. This is especially useful when crossing uneven, cobbled, or gravel surfaces. The rigid frame also favors agile handling.
For safe braking, the front and rear wheels are equipped with powerful, responsive disc brakes. It is possible to increase the dynamism and intensity of the brake response by changing its center of gravity. A brake light, integrated in the rear light, alerts traffic behind that you are braking.
The low footrests and the telescopic handlebar function ensure perfect ergonomics, allowing people between 1,60m and 1,90m to use the BMW Motorrad X2City safely and comfortably. A micro-USB socket integrated in the control / display unit allows you to charge your smartphone on the go from the lithium-ion battery.
