BMW Motorrad Malaysia opens its new chapter in electric mobility by launching the all-new CE0-04 for the Malaysian market, priced at RM59,500.
- The CE-04 is proof that BMW continues its pursuit of electromobility strategy for urban conurbations.
- The CE 04 is mounted with a permanent magnet electric motor located in the frame between the battery and the rear wheel.
The CE 04 is powered by an electric motor capable of producing 31kW (42hp) and able to reach 0-50km/h in just 2.6 seconds. Despite build as an urban commuter, BMW claimed the CE 04 has a maximum speed of 120 km/h while able to cover up to 130km thanks to a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 60.6 Ah (8.9 kWh).
As an added convenience, owners can charge the battery via a regular household socket, a wall box or at every public charging station.
BMW claimed that the charging time is around 4 hours and 20 minutes if the battery is completely flat, but owners can opt for a quick charger that cuts down the charging time to just 1 hour and 40 minutes.
However, if the battery level is at 20 per cent, the charging time to 80 per cent will take just 45 minutes. Interestingly, like every petrol-powered BMW motorcycle, the CE 04 also offers Automatic Stability Control (ASC) as standard and Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) as an optional package.
The CE 04 also features three riding modes consisting of ECO, Rain and Road, while the (optional) Dynamic mode allows better acceleration.
Other exciting features include:
- full LED light setup
- tubular steel frame
- telescopic front fork with 35mm slider tube
- single-sided swingarm with a spring strut
- 120/70-R15 front tyre
- 160/60-R15 rear tyre
- ABS (ABS Pro *optional)
The CE-04 also features a 10.25″ TFT screen with integrated map navigation and connectivity to complete the look of a modern futuristic scooter.
