Video: BMW i3 Shows It’s Seriously Quick While Being Chased by a Motorcycle
YouTube user Biking in the Free World ran into a BMW i3 on the road for the first time. Naturally, it turned into a catch-me-if-you-can event.
The motorcycle (we have no clue of the make or model) can’t quite match the pace of the i3, which seems to show it’s got a ton of zip when the accelerator pedal is mashed.
Just watch how the i3 passes several vehicles with absolute ease.
Officially, the i3 has 170 hp and 184 pound-feet or torque. Its 0 to 62 mph time is listed at 7.2 second and top speed is 93 mph.
But as this video shows, the i3 has a lot of mid-range grunt, which allows it to easily shoot from say 30 mph to 60 mph in just a few seconds.
The motorcycle rider who captures the i3 in action seems to question the i3’s ability to go far when driven in this speedy way. The script at the end of video reads (loosely translated, of course):
How many kilometers can he go while driving this aggressively?
Or even less?
That is the question.
