BMW Motorrad Concept C – Click above for high-res image gallery

You may remember the Concept C from last year. It was BMW Motorrad's vision of what a large motor scooter could look like, and now it's headed into production.

Our friends at Hell for Leather report that a production version of the Concept C will be unveiled at major motorbike shows after the summer. And once it's in production, it'll likely get a different name, but after that it's headed for the United States.

Whether the LED headlights, LCD "dashboard" monitors and ABS disc brakes will make it onto the production version remains to be seen. The blue-treaded tires, though, almost definitely won't.

      Seems fairly likely the ABS (as an option, at least) will make it since they want to make it standard across all their bikes. LCDs too, I think a couple of their production bikes have them already.

      This is a great looking sketch. I worry that it will be really expensive but I've been seriously eyeing the T-Max but I've always been a real fan of BMW's styling. As long as they set it up so you can have a substantial lean angle I'll be all over this bike. Commuting on a scoot is worlds more comfortable than a standard bike (and yes, I've owned mostly bikes - Ducati 900SS, Ninja 250R, BMW K100RS...etc) if for nothing else than not having to mess with gearing while in stop and go traffic. On the track we would all prefer the standard bike but for the street, this looks like a great option. BTW: I always ride helmeted and with proper garb and if you only look like a tool on a scoot if you ARE a tool and that doesn't change when you get rid of the pass through and go to a standard bike. Grow some bells and stop judging someone's manhood based on one's daily driver. We can pull out the adolescent ruler at the track.

      This bike aside, scooter riders have to be some of the least properly outfitted two wheel riders. Are sandals, shorts and a t-shirt the required attire? I rarely see a scooter rider in a helmet let alone any sort or protective clothing. Just baffles me.

      So could a guy ride this without still looking like a fool? I kinda doubt it.

      The photos are BS! It's obvious those people are not working, but just posing to pretend to be working. Still, it's good that BMW shows some of the faces behind the products - it demonstrates recognition of their work - even if the photos are faked.
