2020 BMW C400GT : MAKE MORE OF YOUR CITY..

2020 BMW C400GT Guide.

The BMW C 400 GT. The Gran Turismo among the mid-size scooters for excellent comfort and dynamic performance as well as lots of riding fun.

BMW Motorrad established its new product category in the area of urban mobility in 2011 with the debut of the C 600 Sport and the C 650 GT as premium vehicles for the maxi scooter segment. These were then followed by the C 400 X, which was first presented in autumn 2017 – a dynamically oriented premium vehicle for the mid-size scooter segment. Now BMW Motorrad introduces the BMW C 400 GT, the Gran Turismo variant of the mid-size scooter, geared towards further increased comfort and enhanced touring capability. Whether riding into the city centre, travelling to the office or enjoying a tour after work or at the weekend – the new C 400 GT is the perfect partner on which to enjoy free-time riding to the full: not just as alone but with a passenger, too.

2020 BMW C400GT Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Powerful, efficiency-optimised single-cylinder engine combined with CVT transmission, vibration decoupling and ASC.

The C 400 GT is powered by the efficiency-optimised single-cylinder engine with an output of 34 hp (25 kW) as is also used in the C 400 X. 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.

Rugged tubular steel frame, telescopic fork and high-performance brake system with ABS as standard.

Like the BMW C 400 X, the new C 400 GT features a rugged tubular space 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.

LED lighting technology as standard and BMW Motorrad Connectivity as an ex-works option.

In addition to standard lighting in LED technology, the new C 400 GT also offers a range of highlights in the area of connectivity that are 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.

Modern, innovative design with excellent wind and weather protection as well as an ingenious storage concept including flexcase.

In terms of its styling, the new C 400 GT can be instantly identified as a member of the BMW Motorrad C family: it is elegant and functional in appeal – always ready and waiting for laid-back urban cruising or else more extended tours with a passenger. Viewed from the front, it is dominated by the aerodynamically designed twin LED headlight with the distinctive design of the LED daytime running light (country-specific) in the form of fibre optic elements. Together with its smooth and very organically designed body element with integrated turn indicators, this ensures the new Gran Turismo for the mid-size scooter segment is clearly set apart from its competitors. With enhanced wind and weather protection due to a higher windshield than in the C 400 X as well as a carefully conceived storage concept comprising two glove compartments and the flexcase under the comfortable, single-section seat, the new mid-size scooter also offers everything that is needed to meet the demands of both everyday practicality and touring suitability. As an additional comfort feature, the new C 400 GT is fitted with Keyless Ride as standard. This makes for highly convenient operation of the ignition, steering lock, seat, filler cap and storage compartments. The new C 400 GT features enhanced comfort properties in the form of a seat with separate rider backrest and passenger footboards instead of footrests.

Attractive paint finishes for distinctive character qualities.

There is a choice of two paint finishes for the new C 400 GT. Alpine White impressively highlights the scooter’s distinctive styling. As a fresh colour with a sense of lightness, it also emphasises the new Gran Turismo’s key qualities such as agility, easy accessibility and effortlessness. The counterpart to this is Moonwalk Grey, which bears out the supreme, contemporary and harmonious character of a dynamic Gran Turismo. This paint finish gives the new C 400 GT a particularly modern touch, harmonising with the contrast colours applied to create a coherent overall appearance. The third paint finish is Blackstorm metallic, which highlights the distinctive, high-quality look of the C 400 GT.
