Match Your BMW X3 With A $5,900 Specialized eBike

BMW Specialized Turbo Levo FSR 6Fattie

Road too narrow for the SUV? Take the matching bike instead.

Created to go where no other BMW X3 has gone before, the high-end trail bike starts off as a Specialized Turbo Levo FSR 6Fattie and then gets a series of cosmetic tweaks to complement Bavaria’s all-new SUV. Its Phytonic Blue paint is available exclusively on the special edition and is a nod to the official hue of the new third-generation X3. The bike comes bundled with a color-coordinated water bottle and both of them are adorned with the “Specialized For BMW” to denote it’s not a run-of-the-mill version of the expensive bike.

How expensive you ask? Well, the regular Specialized Turbo Levo FSR 6Fattie costs €3,999 as per the official pricing in Germany on the Turbo-Levo.com website. The BMW-branded version will set you back a cool €5,200, which works out to $5,900. In the U.S., the standard version of the bike costs $4,500.

BMW X3 With BMW Specialized Turbo Levo FSR 6Fattie

It’s actually an e-bike as it comes with a 504-Wh battery pack (up from 460 Wh) featuring a docking mechanism allowing the owner to simply remove it from the bike to recharge it separately. BMW designed the charging cable, which can be hooked up to the X3’s 12V power socket in the trunk without having to worry it might put a strain on the SUV’s own battery.

To get the most out of your bike, Specialized has a Mission Control smartphone app able to monitor the rider and calculate the optimum pedal assistance after pre-setting the distance and time. This way, the owner will be able to extract the maximum potential from the battery pack.

It should be mentioned this is far from being the first BMW-endorsed bike as it follows other recent products, such as the much cheaper €3,500 Cruise e-Bike i8 Protonic Dark Silver Edition and the M2 Coupe-matching €1,400 Cruise M Bike Limited Edition.

    It will match the X3 when the X3 is 100% Electric!

    Automakers love brand tie-ins. Bicycles are an especially popular one. Anytime they want to connect to a healthy lifestyle, or being “green”, they stick their name on a bicycle.

    Special edition cars are another weird thing. I always wanted to see a Winnie-the-Pooh Ford Expotition SUV. 🙂

    The turbo levo is a very good bike and it looks cool but I would much rather have a normal edition and save the money

  4. WARREN says:

    The new X3 is a very nice vehicle overall. A plug in version is all but guaranteed. I hope they still plan on an all electric version.

  5. Lawrence says:

    An mobility scooter would be a better pair for the X3 as mall parking lots are the actual common habitat of X3’s.

    Actually quiet a feat packing that much battery power into such a limited space.

      Naw, .5 kWh is pretty standard for e-bikes the last few years. Some are offering 1 kWh option for real long distance riding.
