As its design suggests, the C 400 X mid-size scooter is made for the city – light and easily maneuverable. The implied V-shape of the trim components makes it appear dynamic and mobile when viewed from the front – a silhouette that emphasises that the C 400 X is superior in tight alleys and dense traffic. In addition, the C 400 X also features the robust and reliable spirit of the GS: the upright proportions, the front mudguard, the clear, graphic separation of the painted trim components and the large asymmetric headlight with full LED front lights are characteristics that can be traced to the GS. However, the trim components don’t just highlight its urban style, they also protect you from wind and bad weather. Its slender rear also makes a statement.
