The BMW C1 is a scooter incorporating some of the safety features usually associated with a car. It is powered by a 125 cc engine running through a variable transmission, simply twist the throttle and go, no gear changes.

BMW C1 safety features include a front wheel guard which acts as a impact absorbing bumper, and the driver/rider is held in place by an x-shaped seat belt.

The BMW C1 was only manufactured for two years 2001-2002, and was marketed for a European audience.

Interestingly, in 2009 BMW unveiled a conceptual successor to the C1 with the C1-E concept. It was basically a modern version of the enclosed motorcycle, but the similarities were striking. However instead of the original motorcycle's 125cc engine, the C1-E was powered by a small electric motor.
