BMW Motorrad patents production version of C 400 X

- Will be the smallest scooter in BMW Motorrad’s range

- Styling inspired by C650 

- Powered by 34 horsepower engine

BMW Motorrad has filed patents for the production version of the C 400 X concept scooter. A 400cc scooter might sound radical for a market like India, but this model actually marks BMW’s entry into the mass-market scooter segment in Europe. 

Keeping with BMW’s nomenclature, we expect the scooter to be christened as the C 400 GT or C 400 Sport. The C 400 X concept was first shown at the 2017 EICMA Show in Milan, featuring futuristic styling and edgy lines. For the production version however, the design has been toned down to make it more production feasible. The windshield is taller to offer better wind protection, the floorboards are more spacious while pillion seat gets a backrest. The instrument cluster now integrates an analogue dial as well. 

At the heart of the C 400 is a 350cc engine which delivers 34 horsepower. It rides on telescopic front forks and a rear monoshock. The brake setup consists of dual discs up front and a single disc in the rear. We can expect the production version of the C 400 X to be showcased at the EICMA Show, later this year. One interesting thing about the C 400 X was that the brakes were sourced from ByBre, which hints that a few of the components might be manufactured in India. However, it is unlikely that the scooter will be launched here any time soon.
