The BMW C 400 X.

Make more of your city.
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.

Maneuverable and agile throughout the city.

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.

BMW Motorrad Connectivity provides real innovation in the class of mid-size scooters. With this additional option, you can connect your smartphone directly to your scooter. For the first time, the C 400 X can be used to connect your smartphone to the TFT display and to control it intuitively via a multi-controller. Looking for the perfect music for riding through the city? No problem with Connectivity. What’s the quickest route to your favorite restaurant? It couldn’t be easier to navigate quickly and safely to your destination with the innovative turn-by-turn arrows on the display. When riding, ask friends where they are? In combination with a BMW Motorrad communication system you can access your smartphone’s contact list via the multicontroller and make or take calls even when on the go.

Perfectly tuned throughout the city.

The engine concept of the C 400 X was specially developed for this mid-size scooter and adapted perfectly to the needs of a large city. The highly efficient design provides low revs, high speeds, efficient combustion and minimal friction – or, in other words, low consumption and unlimited, uncomplicated fun. With the C 400 X you can easily keep up with the speed of the city.

This is how comfortable urban mobility can be.

Commuter stress in city traffic is a thing of the past from now on. Get to know the city and its routes from a whole new perspective with the C 400 X. The entire architecture of this mid-size scooter is designed for excellent, vibration-free rideability and stability on both straights and bends. ABS and Automatic Stability Control (ASC) also come standard for more safety, even on adverse road surface conditions. Most smartphones fit into the charging compartment with an integrated power outlet, so that you don’t have to miss anything during your journey and while exploring the city. The fold-out flexcase under the seat provides additional luggage room for helmets and bags.


Fully connected while on the road.

In the scooter segment, the C 400 X offers an innovative new world as a special feature: BMW Motorrad Connectivity. The high-resolution 6.5-inch TFT color display makes it easy to use smartphone applications such as calling, listening to music or navigating – even while riding.


Stability and safety.

Regardless of adverse conditions, control is maintained due to ASC. Automatic Stability Control ensures that the rear wheel does not lose traction, so the force is transmitted efficiently to the road and active riding safety is significantly increased.


Efficient, powerful, optimized consumption.

The engine of the C 400 X is perfectly designed for the mobility requirements in the city. With a displacement of 350 cc and a power of 34 hp (25 KW) at 7,500 rpm, it is not only strong, but also has low fuel consumption.
