BMW has been present since 2013 in thewith the C Evolution. The manufacturer is preparing its succession with the BMW Definition CE 04, a model close to the series surprisingly faithful to the Concept Link unveiled in 2017. Very elongated, with a low seat making it easier to step over, the Definition CE 04 sports a futuristic and minimalist by playing on elements of fairing independent of each other and a very inclined front unit.
The battery, about whichdoes not give any specification, is integrated flat in order to lower the center of and to provide a storage compartment for the helmet accessible laterally. Lighting integration is taken from the Concept Link, especially at the rear where it is integrated into the side panel. The pilot has in front of him a large 10.2-inch screen, the largest ever integrated on a scooter, according to BMW.
A matching parka with integrated light signaling
Theautomatically connects to its owner’s smartphone and BMW has taken the concept of connectivity even further with full driver equipment. There is a helmet coordinated with the colors of the scooter, a parka, pants and shoes. The parka incorporates a system of light bands of signaling whose color can be changed thanks to controls integrated in the sleeve and one of its pockets can charge a smartphone by induction.
