  • BMW patented electric supercharger can be used on their upcoming bikes.

  • Check out the images.

Recently the BMW Motorrad launched the long-awaited update to their S 1000 RR. Now, it is possible that BMW is working on a supercharged motorcycle which is based on the S 1000 RR. BMW recently patented an image of working of the electric supercharger. This technology can help the motorcycle to produce more power in the lower rev range of the engine which means fewer exhaust gases and the fuel economy of the motorcycle may also improve.

The conventional supercharger is less efficient as it draws power from the engine. The turbocharger uses the exhaust gases from the engine due to which there is a significant turbo-lag. What BMW is trying to do is drive the supercharger with the help of electric power which will lead to torque surge as soon as you get on the throttle. Due to this, the motorcycle will have a lot of power even in the low-end of the rev range because the supercharger will not be dependent on the engine. This will lower the stress on the engine as it will not have to hit the top end to get the most out of the engine.

Kawasaki already introduced a supercharged bike earlier, the H2. The H2 was highly appreciated among the automotive riders. Now, we expect the BMW Motorrad will also join the category of supercharged motorcycles.
