2021 BMW Motorrad C400X
Now made Euro 5 emissions compliant, the 2021 BMW Motorrad C400X and C400GT scooters have entered the Malaysia market. Pricing is set at RM44,500 for the C400X while the C400GT is tagged at RM48,500, with all prices listed as on-the-road without insurance.
More improvements come in the form of ride-by-wire throttle, dubbed “E-gas” by BMW Motorrad, for idling stability, combined with a throttle valve bypass and turbulence system. Engine changes to meet emissions regulations include a modified catalytic convertor, wideband oxygen sensor, modifications to the cylinder head and adapted wiring harness.
Revisions have also been made to the C400s centrifugal clutch to reduce clutch and improve response when the throttle is opened. A combination of increased spring force and slightly raised engine speed when the clutch re-engages, with tolerances reduced to compress the spread of engine speed, are responsible for the better performance.
No changes in the power figures for the C400, the single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-valve, OHC mill putting out 34 hp at 7,500 rpm and 35 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. The C400s Automatic Stability Control has also been revised to handle slippery road surfaces while the brake levers have now been calibrated to provide identical lever travel along with more feedback from the new twin front brake callipers.
