Muon beams are customarily obtained via K decays produced in proton interaction on target. In this paper we investigate the possibility to produce low emittance muon beams from electron-positron collisions at centre-of-mass energy just above the μ+ μ production threshold with maxi- mal beam energy asymmetry, corresponding to a positron beam of about 45 GeV interacting on electrons on target. We present the main features of this scheme with possible   performances that could be achieved by a multi-TeV muon collider.
