We head to Melbourne to the launch of the C 400 X and C 400 GT BMW scooters... Review: Jeff Ware Pics & Footage: Luci Luci

The all-new BMW C 400 X and C 400 GT scooters are mid-range (350cc) high-end scooters designed for not only CBD Urban use but also to allow owners to get out of town or commute from the wider suburbs. Packed with creature comforts such as heated grips, heated seat, TFT dash, traction control, ABS and more the C 400s are extremely comfortable and easy to ride. We found out by spending a day in the Dandenong Ranges, Victoria, as well as commuting out of Melbourne. It was cold and wet but we still learned a lot about the C 400 X, the sportier model, and the C 400 GT, the grand tourer. Check out the full written reviews shortly.

The C 400 X is packed with features and powered by a 350cc four-valve single.
