BMW C1-E - Electric

While searching Google images for Royce Creasey's Voyager and HiTechati prototypes, I noticed pictures of a BMW C1-E.

Some suggection from a comment that there's a Vectrix motor underpinning it, but I haven't compared it.

Noticable, though, that much of the original C1 'cladding' has gone, including a much-reduced screen - now not needing a windscreen wiper as the rider can see over it.

They've also eliminated the overly-complicated dual-handle stand mechanism. That's not necessarily a good thing - it doesn't appear to have any stand!

The site notes BMW saying it's only a concept.
