A CONNECTED RIDE. A SMARTER RIDE.

A connected touchscreen dashboard. Integrate it with vehicle firmware, sync it with our cloud database and layer with predictive analytics. Serve this to curious data scientists and the possibilities of the connected S340 are now endless.

AS YOU LIKE IT

Vehicles of tomorrow will offer deep personalization. Our first step, the S340. It comes with two riding modes – Sport & Economy and customizable profiles that allow you to configure your scooter settings with a tap.

WITH YOU, EVEN WHEN YOU’RE AWAY

Pick up your phone. It might just be a notification from your S340. Now talk to your 3G enabled scooter through an app which allows you to configure your ride and profile preferences. And you can even sync your navigation routes with your dashboard, from the comfort of your home.

THE INVISIBLE CORD

With 24×7 connectivity*, the cord with Ather remains uncut. The vehicle’s critical data is constantly analyzed and regular improvements are made with over the air firmware and software updates. How about adding a new feature for enhancing your ride experience? Absolutely possible. Delivered via the air.

BUILT FOR US

We’re a team of 2-wheeler enthusiasts who are engineers at heart. A tough bunch to please. To be truly happy with the S340, we had to build it ground up, crafting it part by part. The result. A creation with every part working in complete harmony and a scooter that we love to ride.

THE ART OF ENGINEERING

The inspiration from performance bikes carries through the design philosophy. A dynamic silhouette with a kicked out rear wheel and a distinct forward leaning profile lends the S340 a sportier stance.

LOOKS LIKE A SCOOTER

RIDES LIKE A BIKE

The S340 is designed with a balanced Front- Rear weight ratio and a rear mono shock suspension, akin to high performance bikes. Coupled with a Zero Lateral Offset and Low Center of Gravity, the S340 has the stability to negotiate even the meanest of city conditions.

PASSIONATELY BUILT

RUTHLESSLY TESTED

Each and every part of the S340 has been built with tons of passion. But when it came to putting it to the test, we were its biggest enemy. Months of unemotional performance tests on the most gruesome terrain and harshest rigs have made the city a cake walk for the S340.

INTUITIVE HEADLIGHTS

The S340 has a smart LED headlamp that switches on automatically and controls light intensity based on ambient light conditions.

THE FUTURE IS ELECTRIC.

Electric was obvious. Better control, cleaner fuel and purely more efficient. Things that the future won’t relent on. But its true power is unleashed by our battery pack – better thermal design, cell arrangement, and integrated battery management system. Owning an electric vehicle will never be a compromise again.

ZIP AHEAD

With instant torque and quick acceleration, the S340 gives you an edge in stop and go traffic conditions. Off the block in a blink.

RUNS A MARATHON

Start the day, zip to your workplace, hit the gym post work, head to the grocery store, grab a bite, get back home and still have charge to spare. With a 60 km range at 72 kmph, the electric ride is no longer a compromise between range and performance.

SPRINTS TO A CHARGE

Long charging hours are a thing of the past. Faster than most smartphones, the charger of the S340 charges 80% in under 50 mins. This means you are back in action by the time you finish your lunch.

PACKS A PUNCH.

ENJOYS A DIP.

Structurally robust, thermally efficient and intelligently designed, the battery pack offers an uncompromised ride for 50,000 kms. The IP 67 rated battery pack can also take a dip under 1 m of water in waterlogged areas for a good 30 minutes and still not catch a cold!

OWN AN EXPERIENCE

We have not only built a scooter that you will love but have also carefully crafted every experience around it. From offering door step vehicle delivery & service to thoughtfully located charging points to dedicated relationship managers, we aim to make every interaction with you a delightful experience.

Check out the BMW Electric Scooter Concept – “Link” with Video

The Concept Link, which BMW Motorrad recently unveiled, has electric drive, zero emissions and full connectivity, the concept vehicle is not just a means of transportation, but also a means of communication. The BMW Motorrad Concept Link unites the benefits of the digital world with those of the analogue world.

A flat energy storage device in the underbody and the compact drive on the rear wheel are the basis for the Concept Link’s modern silhouette. The various possibilities for personalisation – from the seat bench through coloured side panels right up to different windshields – highlight each rider’s individual personality. The vehicle can be connected with the calendar, making it aware of the next destination, and thus able to suggest the fastest or most scenic route there and even provide music upon request. The concept goes one step further: even the rider’s clothing is intelligently connected with the vehicle. A simple stroke over the sleeve for instance is enough to close the sliding door of the luggage compartment.

Speed, navigation and battery status are displayed in the windscreen, while a large panel with touch function has all information on infotainment, connectivity and route planning at the ready. For even more customisation and connectivity between the rider and the vehicle, there are individually assignable shortcut keys on the handlebars with touch function. At the moment, the BMW Motorrad Concept Link is still a prototype. It already shows where the journey with BMW Motorrad might lead. Interconnected solutions stand for connectivity, convenience and last but not least safety. Providing a vision of what will be important in the urban environment in future: the pure riding pleasure, connectivity between humans and their vehicles, and focussing on the essential.
