BMW's Motorrad motorcycle division has revealed the next evolution in its electrified scooter project, dubbed simply Evolution C.

Taking its lead from last year's Concept E, the Evolution C concept is described as a near-production preview of an electric scooter that will launch in the not-too-distant future.

The Evolution C is driven by an electric motor that delivers 11kW of continuous power, with a peak output of 35kW. The motor's energy is supplied by the same lithium-ion battery modules featured in the upcoming i3 electric city car.

BMW promises a top speed of 120km/h and a driving range of around 100km/h, although the regenerative braking system can increase range by 10 percent.

The ultra-green scooter also benefits from ABS brakes - a standard feature across the Motorrad line-up in Europe.

Other features include a small screen mounted in place of the traditional instrument cluster, displaying information such as speed and remaining energy.

For now, BMW has released five Evolution C scooters onto the streets of London, both as a pilot programme and as a part of its sponsorship of the 2012 Olympics.

BMW says it will use the pilot programme to fine-tune the Evolution C ahead of its market launch, which could be as soon as late 2013.
