2018 BMW C 400 X – Scooter for Maximum Riding Fun

2018 BMW C 400 X – Design and Ride.

In terms of drive technology, the BMW C 400 X provides this new dynamic access to the urban environment by means of a newly developed efficiency-optimised single-cylinder engine with an output of 34 hp (25 kW). Power transmission is via a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) gearbox and a torsionally stiff drivetrain swing arm with innovative swing arm bearing for minimum vibration and therefore maximum comfort. Automatic Stability Control ASC ensures increased safety during acceleration, especially on slippery surfaces.

BMW Motorrad established its new product category in the area of urban mobility in 2011 with the debut of the BMW C 600 Sport and the BMW C 650 GT as premium vehicles for the maxi scooter segment. Now BMW Motorrad goes one step further and presents the new BMW C 400 X – a premium vehicle for the mid-size scooter segment.

But the new BMW C 400 X is not just a smart mid-size scooter designed to avoid constant urban traffic congestion and allowing faster movement through the traffic jungle from A to B: the new mid-size scooter also demonstrates that urban mobility can be a lot of fun, too. In short, the new BMW C 400 X transforms a ride into the city or to the workplace from a lowlight to a highlight: in fact instead of choosing a sensible shortcut, the rider will be tempted to take the long way round – purely for the extra riding fun.

In the chassis area, the new BMW C 400 X sports a rugged tubular frame made of steel. Suspension and damping are taken care of by a telescopic fork at the front and two spring struts at the rear. The set-up and spring travel have been selected so as to ensure that sporty, dynamic riding fun is combined with a very high level of comfort. Supreme brake performance and outstanding safety are provided by the twin disc brake at the front in conjunction with a single disc brake at the rear, along with ABS as standard.

In addition to standard lighting technology in highly luminous LED technology, the new BMW C 400 X also offers a range of highlights in the area of connectivity which is new to the segment. A multifunctional instrument cluster with 6.5‑inch full-colour TFT screen is available as an ex-works option, for example. In conjunction with the further advanced BMW Motorrad Multi-Controller offering integrated operation, this means the rider can access vehicle and connectivity functions quickly and without being distracted from what is happening on the road. In addition to the convenience of being able to use the phone and listen to music during travel, there is also the benefit of effortless navigation by means of a practical system of arrows.

There is a choice of two paint finishes for the new BMW C 400 X. Zenith Blue metallic gives the new BMW C 400 X a pronounced modern appearance and underscores its athletic properties. In the paint finish Alpine White non-metallic, the distinctive styling of the new BMW C 400 X comes into its own, making it look more technical, compact and light. The contrasting single seats in grey-black or red-black emphasise the BMW Motorrad mid-size scooter’s dynamic appearance, as well as underscoring its additional strengths of agility, easy accessibility and effortless handling.

In terms of its styling, the new BMW C 400 X can be instantly identified as a member of the BMW Motorrad C family: its appearance is modern, future-oriented and functional. Viewed from the front, the dominant feature is its iconically styled LED headlight with distinctive daytime riding light design (optional) in the form of fibre optic elements. This sets the new BMW Motorrad mid-size scooter clearly apart from its competitors, giving it a particularly sporty and dynamic look. With excellent wind and weather protection, a carefully conceived storage concept comprising two integrated compartments and the Flexcase under the comfortable, single-section seat, the new mid-size scooter offers everything that is needed to meet the demands of everyday practicality and touring suitability.

Sweet, now to bring all that tech on the C650 Sport and the C650 GT which I’m sure you’ll be doing! Here in London is a great place for a bike like this but I hope BMW considers security for customers in the making of these bikes.
The biggest hindrance to the bike market in the UK (London really which is the best market for this bike) now are thieves.
