The city in a new dimension.
What makes a city interesting? The diversity of people? The trends that emerge here? The countless possibilities? It’s all this combined! To discover it requires a good level of fitness – one that accompanies you on longer tours through varied city life with comfort: the BMW C 400 GT. With it, the city’s pulse quickens a bit more and your radius increases just like your digital connectivity with the world. Because with this mid-size scooter, you are just as comfortable and agile in the city as in the surrounding area. Discover your city in a new dimension with the C 400 GT and look forward to much, much more of what makes your city interesting.
Progressive, innovative and full of emotion.
Get downtown! Or better: pure pleasure! This agile mid-size scooter allows you to conquer the city – whilst also being prepared for longer tours in the surrounding region. This is exactly what the design of the C 400 GT conveys: the sporty V-shape of the elegant trim panel components and the large-format windscreen protect you from the wind and weather and are testament to the urban desire for adventure. The ergonomically designed seat, which guarantees a comfortable as well as confident seating position – whether for the short jaunt or a longer trip – also contributes to this. The LED light technology is particularly striking: the iconic headlight with optional daytime riding lights and the integrated front turn signals provide a convincing appearance from the very first moment. And what looks really good from the front is also impressive from the rear: narrow, progressive and full of emotions – that’s what makes the city even more fun.
Connected to the city – and the whole world.
This is how the future feels: BMW Motorrad Connectivity allows you to experience a real revolution in terms of connectivity on your C 400 GT. With this optional accessory, your smartphone and your scooter become one unit. To do so, your phone connects to the standard TFT display and can be intuitively controlled via the multi-controller on the handlebars. The socket integrated into the storage compartment ensures that your smartphone remains as energetically charged as you do. Whether it’s the playlist with your favourite sounds or the best route through the city: the innovative turn-by-turn arrow display allows you to navigate quickly and safely. And you always stay in contact with your friends. The BMW Motorrad communication system allows you easy access to your smartphone’s contact list via the multi-controller, and thus to make phone calls on the go.
Experience more with more comfort.
The city is not enough for you? You want to experience more? No problem with the C 400 GT. It effortlessly propels you through the tightest of alleyways with speed and agility and is impressive on larger tours thanks to its unique ride comfort. So you experience excellent hand-ling characteristics, vibration-free and full of stability – on a straight road as well as on winding streets. ABS and automatic stability control (ASC) as standard ensure safety in any situation. And the C 400 GT with standard Keyless Ride is even more convenient.
