2020 BMW C400X : MAKE MORE OF YOUR CITY..

2020 BMW C400X Guide.

The C 400 X gives you the opportunity to take advantage of everything that the city has to offer while you’re on the move. It’s a mid-size scooter that easily overcomes the challenges of travel in a city. Just take your favorite songs with you on the scooter and experience the city to your own personal soundtrack. You can make plans with friends on your connected smartphone without dismounting while you cruise comfortably through the metropolis. With the C 400 X, your city and routes become an open space of your own.

BMW C 400 X: the dynamic BMW Motorrad mid-size scooter for maximum riding fun in an urban setting.

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.

2020 BMW C400X Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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 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.

Attractive paint finishes for distinctive character qualities.

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.
