Luuc Muis of LM Creations has achieved a remarkable feat with the BMW R00, creating an electric motorcycle that maintains the iconic characteristics of vintage motorcycles. Unlike other electric conversions that feature a large battery box where the engine used to reside, the R00 has a bolt-on EV drivetrain that replaces the existing crankcase while keeping the gearbox intact. This allows for a more authentic riding experience, with the ability to shift gears and experience different torque and speed sensations in each gear. The power unit is a 72V motor that can generate up to 20kW peak power and 72 Nm torque, with a max rpm of 7500. The 4.3kW 72V battery pack has a calculated urban range of 80km and weighs just 24kg, while the charger options include 1.8kW and 3.3kW 230V chargers. With its innovative design and attention to detail, the BMW R00 is a true standout in the world of electric motorcycles.
