BMW C Evolution.

 

The new BMW motorcycle launched in 2014 makes new standards of efficiency. The battery autonomy lets the vehicle to drive on distances of 100 kilometres.

BMW C Evolution is a electric motorcycle that has 48 power horses and a 100 km autonomy. The charging of the electric vehicle is made in circa 3 hours with less than 3 euros.

The problem can consist in lack of classic motor sound that is replaced by the silent electrical hum, it traffic people cannot observe that a motorcycle is moving. The vehicle can accelerate in 2,7 seconds to 50 km/h. The brakes are very performant. The motorcycle has the “Reverse ” function and also the autonomy level can be raised when pushing the brakes, by 20 km.

BMW C Evolution will consume around 3 euros for a full charge, a BMW C650 GT will cost the owner around 6-7 euros. In west Europe the BMW C Evolution costs around 15 500 euros, little big price for a motorcycle. Even if the cost is high and the charging is not less that for the classic motorcycle a reason to buy the BMW C Evolution is that this vehicle doesn’t pollute the nature.

The electric motorcycle has 4 modes of piloting , here are they:

Eco Pro – The mode that lets the owner to feel the best “the motor brake”., a reason why the economy of energy is  also the biggest. The acceleration is also limited to protect the energy reserves, so the autonomy can reach up to 120 km.

Road – The mode that BMW calculated the autonomy of 100 km. It allows to use the entire power of the engine and the energy is recuperated in a procentage of 50% when the acceleration lever is closed.The energy recuperation is done when pushing the brakes.

Sail – The mode where is no “motor brakes”, the motorcycle is carried by inetia and does recuperate the energy when pressing the brakes. The single mode that offers great experience that can be hardly felt of a classical motorcycle.

Dynamic – The mode that lets to use the entire power of acceleration, but it consumes very fast the battery power. Dynamic mode has the most violent “motor brake”, thats why the owner needs a time period to accommodate until it can be ruled over.adis7877 adis7888 bmw-c-evolution-34

BMW i8 tips from a real owner.

 

BMW i8 tips from a real owner.

  • The MPG for 880 miles was 35.1.
  • Before doing anything else, turn on “Prefer Expressways” in Navigation Options, or the Navigation system will take you throughout the river and through the woods to achieve the fastest route , even it takes 3 exits and a lot of time to get out of the woods.
  • Turn off “Sport” when entering a parking, not to get an agressive car and to move reverse easier.
  • The little box on the climate display named “AUTO” is about the energy intensity the auto setting has, it has five positions.
  • The back seat is not adjusted for a high person about 5′, people are feeling not very comfortable in back.
  • It is not very comfortable to get out of the car because of the unconventional doors. It can be an issue but not for everyone.
  • People want to take pictures with the car, some people follow the car just to take pictures from back. People go crazy when see BMW i8.j5jkgqoir2ojxe0cdtue nxeai0yoido06fyu4l7r rfbgv5jpv5qhtrbvxk1u

 

BMW i3 tuned by Eve.Ryn

 

The Japanese thought that BMW i3 would need a stilling from them. So people from Eve.Ryn  thought that BMW i3 could be more imposing, so they have worked on an aesthetic and a little aggressive kit. They didn’t stop only at the look of i3 but they also made the wheels of 20 inches and they modified the angle of wheels(the stance treatment that is more popular in the world of tuning )

We don’t know if the electric motor was modified so we can just look and admire the tuning of the BMW i3.
