Back in 2017, BMW Motorrad explored new ways within urban motility with its Concept Link, and today the German marque has brought the electric scooter one step closer to real-life with the Definition CE 04.
BMW Motorrad’s Definition CE 04 is a near-production-ready version of the aforementioned Link, and has been developed to “redefine the scooter segment.” As shown at BMW’s #NEXTGen 2020 event, in which it also unveiled the iX, this scooter is one which we can expect to come in the not-too-distant future, packed with a host of user-friendly and future-friendly tech.
For example, it has been specifically designed to be optimized for city environments — special flat energy packs in the underfloor compartment and a compact drivetrain allow for more space elsewhere, providing storage solutions for things such as the rider’s helmet. Furthermore, these central and low-placed batteries offer a better center of gravity which aids the riding experience, as does the low and elongated body.
No word has been said yet on how far the scooter will travel on one charge, but BMW Motorrad has said that its focus audience group would travel 12km a day on average. As a result of its likely short-journey usage, BMW Motorrad focused on ease of access over comfort — something that’s easy to get on and off of (such as the Definition CE 04’s floating seat bench) is more important in the city than sumptuous comfort.
BMW Motorrad rounds out the Definition CE 04 with details such as a 10.25-inch infotainment screen and a special colorway comprising matte black, white and orange panels that define core elements around the bike.
