After the prototype BMW Motorrad Concept Link shown in 2017 and its successor BMW Motorrad definition CE 04 presented in 2020, BMW Motorrad presented the final on BMW CE 04, which opens a completely new chapter in urban mobility on two wheels.
With its electric drive, futuristic design and innovative connectivity solutions, the new scooter fuses transport and communication functions for a new kind of mobility in the urban environment.
It is also available in versions of reduced powers of 11 kW (15 CV) and 23 kW (31 CV). The maximum speed of the scooter is 120 km/h, allowing quick movements not only in the city, but also on the road and on short trips on the motorway.
Thanks to a 8,9 kWh battery, the new CE 04 has an autonomy of about 130 kilometers, which drops to 100 km for the reduced power versions. The lithium-ion battery is recharged by the built-in charging device, either in a normal household socket, through a wall-box or a public charging station.
When the battery is completely discharged, the charging time is 4 hours and 20 minutes. With the fast charger available as an option, with a power of up to 6,9 kW (2,3 kW is the standard level), that time is reduced to just 1 40 hour and minutes. If the battery level is only 20% and it charges up to 80%, the charging time is reduced to only 45 minutes with optional fast charger.
The new BMW Motorrad model features a comparable traction control to the Automatic Stability Control of BMW motorcycles with combustion engine. The ASC limits the torque in relation to the lack of grip of the rear tire. In addition, the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), available as an option, provides even greater driving safety.
Standard includes three driving modes ECO, Rain y Road for efficient daily use. Driving mode is also available as a factory option Dynamic for increased driving pleasure.

The new BMW CE 04 is equipped as standard with a TFT screen 10,25-inch color with integrated navigation and connectivity systems. For the first time in its segment, the new 10,25-inch TFT screen allows a navigation map to be displayed integrated into the instrumentation, so no additional screen is required.
El light system includes state-of-the-art LED technology. The high beam and low beam are included in the same headlight group. Also the rear light group and the indicators have LED technology. Adaptive cornering light Headlight Pro, available as an option, offers even more security at night.
