the new BMW CE 04, BMW Motorrad continues to consistently pursue its
electromobility strategy for urban conurbations. The BMW CE 04 opens up a whole
new chapter in two-wheel urban mobility.
a maximum output of 42 hp, the new BMW CE 04 has a powerful motor and offers
outstanding riding pleasure. For the classic “traffic light start” discipline
from 0 to 50 kmph, it takes just 2.6 seconds. Even in the reduced output L3e-A1
vehicle class, 31 hp drive power is available. The maximum speed of both
versions is 120 km/h.
new BMW CE 04 has an ample battery cell capacity of 60.6Ah, providing a range
of some 130 kilometres (reduced output version: 100 km).
new BMW CE 04 has a permanent magnet electric motor mounted in the frame
between the battery and the rear wheel, as used in a similar form in BMW cars
such as the 225xe Active Tourer.
lithium-ion battery is charged using the integrated charging device either at a
regular household socket, a wallbox or a public charging station. When the
battery is completely flat, charging time ideally lasts 4 hours and 20 minutes.
With the quick charger available as an optional extra with an output of up to
6.9 kW (2.3 kW is the standard level), charging time is reduced to just 1 hour
and 40 minutes when the battery is completely flat. If the battery level is
only 20 per cent and the battery is charged to 80 per cent, the charging time
is reduced to just 45 minutes with the optional quick charger.
on the market, the standard charging cable with a charging capacity of 2.3 kW
comes as standard with the BMW CE 04.A Mode 3 charging cable is required for
fast charging at the wallbox at home or at a public charging station. In the
same way as with BMW automobiles, BMW Charging solutions are available for the
BMW CE 04, too – for maximum flexibility based on numerous customised
programmes for charging at home, on the road and at work.
BMW CE 04 gets increased riding stability through slip control by means of ASC
(Automatic Stability Control). DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) is an ex works
option. This traction control is comparable to the Automatic Stability Control
in BMW motorcycles with combustion engine. ASC limits engine torque in relation
to rear wheel slip. Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), available as an optional
extra, provides even greater riding safety. DTC enables even more safe
acceleration, especially in banking position.
riding modes “ECO”, “Rain” and “Road” for efficient, day-to-day use come as
standard. “Dynamic” riding mode is offered for further enhanced riding pleasure
as an ex works option.
new BMW CE 04 gets directionally stable suspension with one-piece tubular steel
main frame for smooth handling and a high level of ride comfort. The main frame
is a tubular steel construction. The front wheel is controlled by a telescopic
fork with a slider tube diameter of 35 mm. Rear wheel control consists of a
single-sided swing arm. At the rear, suspension and damping are performed by a
directly controlled, fully covered spring strut. The new BMW CE 04 is fitted
with generously sized tyres, with 120/70 R15 67H at the front and 160/60 R15
56H at the rear. Powerful brake system with latest-generation ABS. ABS Pro with
banking capability come as an ex works option.
the front, a twin disc brake ensures secure deceleration, supported by a
single-disc system at the rear. In addition, BMW Motorrad ABS ensures a high
level of active safety. ABS Pro, available as an optional extra, goes even
further: By means of a banking sensor, ABS Pro also controls braking on bends,
thereby offering the greatest possible safety.
new BMW CE 04 comes fitted as standard with a 10.25-inch TFT colour screen with
integrated map navigation and connectivity. The lighting units on the new BMW
CE 04 are based on state-of-the-art LED technology. They include a headlamp for
high beam and low beam at the front. In addition to a rear light featuring LED
technology, there are also LED turn indicators. The indicator lamps likewise
use LED technology.
greater safety at night is offered by the adaptive turning light Headlight Pro,
available as an ex works option. Here, the rider benefits from further improved
illumination of the road when cornering for even safer riding at night. Special
light functions such as “Welcome” and “Good Bye” are also available as ex works
modern surface finish is in a striking Light White, complemented by matt black
sections in the front and side areas as well as the “floating” seat.
addition to the standard connectivity and the navigation map shown on the
screen, the new BMW CE 04 also offers telephony with smartphone connection. A
smartphone can be securely accommodated in a storage compartment on the
left-hand inner side that is protected from splash water and ventilated by an
electric fan, and its battery can be kept ready for use via USB connection.
hinged storage compartment lid is automatically locked with the central locking
system. Inside the storage compartment there is a holding device in which a
smartphone can be securely fastened during travel by means of a flexibly sized
fixture. Up to 1.5 A charging current (charging capacity up to 12 W) is
available at the USB-C socket located in the storage compartment, which also
enables quick charging depending on the smartphone type. A ventilation system
reduces the heat generated when the smartphone is in use, while a seal on the
storage compartment lid protects it from splash water.
