Two of the more intriguing concepts planned for the world's largest motor show (IAA) in Frankfurt a fortnight from now will come from BMW Motorrad and sister brand Husqvarna.

Almost nothing about the concepts has been disclosed other than their existence and a few cryptic words in a press release which mention an e-mobility BMW Motorrad design study and "a new idea for individual single track mobility" from Husqvarna.

The line that really caught my eye though was "the visionary, extraordinary design concept by Husqvarna Motorcycles targets specifically young customers seeking a single track commuter vehicle outside of the scooter segment."

Two sketches were among the press kit - one of what looks to be an electric motard from Husqvarna, the other of an electric maxi-scooter from BMW Motorrad.

That's all we know until the press conference on September 13 when the two design concepts will be presented to the media.
