BMW Motorrad has unveiled their latest scooter offering during EICMA 2017 which is the 2018 BMW C 400 X.
Powered by a single-cylinder 350cc engine, the new C 400 X produces a punchy 34hp at 7,500rpm and 35Nm of maximum torque at 6,000rpm.
The C 400 X comes with all-round LED lighting plus Daytime-Running Lights (DRL), full-colour 6.5-inch TFT screen and other premium features.
The last time BMW Motorrad released a scooter was way back in 2011 with their powerful BMW C 600 range with a huge dose of premium-ness in the world of maxi scooters. This week at EICMA 2017 in Milan, the German manufacturer took it up a notch with the introduction of the new 2018 BMW C 400 X – a premium mid-sized scooter.
With the world fast becoming a place where urban development is at its highest, the scooter has become one of the main modes of transportation. BMW took note of this and came up with a scooter that’s not only functional but also something that’ll change that everyday mundane journey into an adventure filled with fun and excitement.
Powered by a single-cylinder 350cc engine, the new C 400 X produces a punchy 34hp at 7,500rpm and 35Nm of maximum torque at 6,000rpm. All the power is transferred down to the rear wheel via a CVT transmission which has been fitted with vibration decoupling and BMW’s Automatic Stability Control (ASC) for better traction even under hard acceleration.
Housed within a strong and robust tubular steel frame, the chassis and handling are further enhanced with the C 400 X’s front telescopic fork and double spring struts taking care of the rear. BMW claims that their latest scooter offering offers sporty yet dynamic riding experience while providing superior levels of comfort.
Braking package comes in the form of twin disc setup for the front and a single disc manning the back. ABS is offered as standard for the new BMW C 400 X.
The electronics available on the new BMW scooter are things to take note of. From its premium all-round LED lighting plus Daytime-Running Lights (DRL) to a full-colour 6.5-inch TFT multifunctional instrument cluster, the C 400 X is about functionality and form. Bluetooth connectivity and GPS? Yup, it has those too.
Another reason why people opt for scooters is because the amount of storage available. For the 2018 C 400 X, a couple of cleverly-designed inconspicuous integrated compartment plus Flexcase found under the seat offer high levels of practicality even when out and about touring the long highways.
Our favourite part has to be overall design plus colour schemes offered for the new C 400 X. While the Zenith Blue metallic paint offers modern and electrifying properties suited for those who are looking for something with a sporty appeal, the Alpine White no-metallic finish showcases the scooter’s premium and sophisticated look.
With the demand for scooters on the rise around the world including Malaysia, the 2018 BMW C 400 X is set to cater to those demands while at the same time offer a package that’s beautiful, functional and stylish that’ll excite both two-wheel and four-wheel enthusiasts alike.
