BMW Concept C or where can u go after a BV 500?

If you have to ask, you cannot afford.

When I went from my Kymco People 150 to my BV500, I thought I had reached the apex of the what the scooter market in the US could offer.

Now BMW has come up with their own version of a scooter for a commuter. Known as the "Concept C" (C = Commuter), this little baby, with it's hommage to "TRON" wheels and front faring, is being marketed as the future of 2-wheel vehicles.

BMW Concept C is the future of scooters as defined by BMW Motorrad (Motorcycle in German). BMW believes the future mobility in mega-cities has very special demands and as always they working on a solution.

It's a mixture between a scooter and a motorcycle; a vehicle that appears similar to the Honda New Mid Concept also unveiled at the EICMA 2010 motorcycle show.

It has the conceptional comfort of a scooter and the agility of a motorcycle.

The BMW Concept C Scooter uses a powerful two cylinder engine combined with a continuously variable transmission, and some of its highlights include the black chromium suspension, the short and sporty muffler or the front-wheel control that looks like an upside down fork.

The BMW Concept C Scooter is also fitted with a dual twin brake disc at the front, with two radial callipers, and a single brake disc at the rear, ABS, and LED headlamp plus three LCD displays in the cockpit.

Only thing you know for sure is that it's a BMW so that = $$$$$. I don't know the cc, or anything else. Can you tell I am posting this while undergoing another stupid migraine? It's hard to find crap on the internet when your skull is sucker punching your brain and your brain is being a total wuss about it.

Why is it so hard for these people to just come out and tell us how much this thing will cost? You really want people to buy it, make sure it is reasonably priced.

BMW = Break My Wallet!
