New BMW C400 X, C400 GT Launched – From RM44,500
- New BMW C400 X – RM44,500
- New BMW C400 GT – RM48,500
The New BMW C400 X and BMW C400 GT arrive with a revised brake system, EU-5 homologated single-cylinder drive with new E-gas feature, optimised engine management and centrifugal clutch.
The Automatic Stability Control also sees further optimisation, along with a new illumination design in the seat storage compartment, and USB charging equipment.
The New BMW C400 X retains its light manoeuvrability as a mid-sized scooter with the V-shaped trim components, upright proportions, a front mudguard, and the clear, graphic separation of the painted trim components.
The large asymmetric LED headlight also equips the New BMW C400 X, along with the Daytime Running Light – now available as standard to the model.
Meanwhile, the BMW C400 GT also arrives with LED lighting technology and can be instantly identified by the aerodynamically designed twin LED headlight with now-standard Daytime Running Light.
The ergonomically designed seat guarantees a comfortable as well as confident seating position. Featuring a separate rider backrest and integrated footboards, the New BMW C400 GT also retains its high windshield for everyday practicality and touring suitability.
The storage concept with Flexcase now features optimised lighting under the seat bench for both the new models to improve comfort significantly.
The lighting now illuminates from above, instead of the sides, for even better clarity. In addition to the 12-volt onboard socket, the front right storage compartment is now equipped with a USB charging socket as well.
Both models are powered by an efficiency-optimised single-cylinder engine with a capacity of 350cc as the drive unit.
The engine outputs 34 hp at 7,500 rpm and 35 Nm peak torque at 5,750 rpm. The models employ power transmission through a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) gearbox including a torsional drivetrain swing arm with minimum vibration.
The engine is now equipped with an electronic throttle grip, or known as the E-gas, and an electrically-operated throttle valve.
Further optimisations include a modified matrix and coating of the catalytic converter, a wideband oxygen sensor, modifications to the cylinder head, a new sensor on the generator cover, an adapted wiring harness and modified idle speed control.
The idle speed regulator in the airbox has been omitted and the idle speed control is now carried out via a throttle valve bypass and a turbulence system.
Safety is also offered via the newly-optimised Automatic Stability Control (ASC) that now features automatic radius calibration and increased regulation quality – giving the vehicles a more sensitive response, especially on wet and slippery surfaces.
Deactivating the ASC is now no longer necessary as well. Suspension and damping continue to be managed by a telescopic fork at the front and two spring struts at the rear.
The brake system of the New BMW C400 X and BMW C400 GT are now revised with new brake calipers. The double-disc brake system at the front now offers a more stable and clearly defined pressure point, as well as improved roll-back behaviour of the brake pistons.
This is accompanied by aligned lever travels for the rear brake on the left and the front brake on the right for a symmetrical braking feel. Both continue to be fitted with Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) as standard.
New instrument cluster
Both models are also equipped with an instrument cluster in the form of a 6.5-inch full-colour TFT screen.
Effortless navigation by means of arrow-based navigation is also available through the BMW Motorrad Connected App. The advanced Keyless Ride feature now equips both models as standard, offering transponder activation for the steering lock, ignition, fuel-filler flap and anti-theft device, all in one vehicle key.
The New BMW C400 X is available exclusively in the new Black Storm (Style Triple Black), while the New BMW C400 GT arrives in three paint finishes – the new Black Storm (Style Triple Black), Callisto Grey, and Alpine White.
With the Financing Plan from BMW Group Financial Services Malaysia, ownership of the New BMW C400 X and New BMW C400 GT start from RM550.00 and RM590.00 per month, respectively. This is based on balloon financing estimates of an 80% loan on a 4-year tenure.
