BMW Motorrad established its entry into urban mobility in 2011 with the debut of the C 600 Sport and the C 650 GT as premium vehicles for the maxi scooter segment. These were then followed by the C 400 X, which was first presented in autumn 2017 – a premium option for the mid-size scooter segment.

Now BMW Motorrad introduces the BMW C 400 GT, the Gran Turismo variant of the mid-size scooter, geared towards further increased comfort and enhanced touring capability. Designed for riding into the city centre, traveling to the office or enjoying a tour after work or at the weekend – the new C 400 GT offers a way to enjoy free-time riding to the full – not just alone but with a passenger, too.

The C 400 GT is powered by an efficiency-optimised single-cylinder engine with an output of 34hp (25 kW) as is also used in the C 400 X. Power transmission is via a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) gearbox and a torsionally stiff drivetrain swingarm with innovative swingarm bearing for minimum vibration and therefore maximum comfort. Automatic Stability Control ASC ensures increased safety during acceleration, especially on slippery surfaces.

Like the BMW C 400 X, the new C 400 GT features a tubular space 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. Brake performance is provided by the twin disc brake at the front in conjunction with a single disc brake at the rear, along with ABS as standard.

In addition to standard lighting in LED technology, the new C 400 GT also offers a range of highlights in the area of connectivity that are 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 allowing the rider to access vehicle and connectivity functions quickly.

In terms of its styling, viewed from the front, it is dominated by the twin LED headlight with the distinctive design of the LED daytime running light (country-specific) in the form of fibre optic elements.

With enhanced wind and weather protection due to a higher windshield than in the C 400 X as well as a carefully conceived storage concept comprising two glove compartments and the flexcase under the single-section seat, the new mid-size scooter also offers everything that is needed to meet the demands of both everyday practicality and touring suitability.

The new C 400 GT is fitted with Keyless Ride as standard. This makes for highly convenient operation of the ignition, steering lock, seat, filler cap and storage compartments. The new C 400 GT also features enhanced comfort properties in the form of a seat with separate rider backrest and passenger footboards instead of footrests.
