BMW C400 GT churns out 34 hp and 35 Nm from its 350cc powerhouse
BMW Motorrad India launched the BMW C400 GT premium scooter in India at a rather ambitious price- Rs 9.95 lakh, ex-showroom. This is significantly higher than the wildest anticipations we had had about the pricing. The scooter is brought in as CBUs, one of the reasons for the high price tag. It, however, is the most powerful scooter currently on sale in India.
The C400 GT, BMW’s newest premium mid-size scooter does come with a distinctive design. The overall shape and design reflect dynamism and style, and compliments touring ability and comfort. Key design highlights include aggressive body panels, twin LED headlamps with integrated LED DRLs, integrated turn signal lamps, higher, well-sized windshield, carefully curated storage compartments, flex case under the seat, keyless ride, and a highly cozy seat design and upholstery.
The BMW scooter gets a 6.5-inch full-color TFT screen for instrumentation and multiple connectivity functions on offer.
BMW C 400 GT has a 350cc water-cooled single cylinder 4 stroke engine as its powerplant, mated to a decent CVT gearbox. The scooter has 34hp and 35 Nm on offer making the 0-100 kph run possible in 9.5 seconds and has a top speed of 139 kph.
The suspension has a number of key changes gone into it, including a stiffer tubular frame and better suspension components. The scooter has 15-inch tyre at the front and 14 inch at the rear. Braking is handled by dual disc brakes and there is ABS as well.
