What Is It?

The BMW CE 04 is a premium maxi scooter and is powered by a liquid cooled electric motor which puts out 20.1 bhp / 15 kW continuous power at 4,900 rpm and 41.6 bhp / 31 kW maximum power. Maximum torque is reached at just 1,500 rpm.

Features include:

  • Belt final drive
  • Tubular steel frame with Aluminium single sided swingarm
  • Dual 265 mm discs up front with four piston calipers
  • 265 mm disc at the rear with single piston caliper
  • Bosch 9.3 ABS system
  • 35 mm fork with 110 mm travel
  • Adjustable rear shock with 92 mm travel
  • Ride modes: Eco, Rain, Road
  • LED lighting all round
  • TFT dash with connectivity
  • Regenerative braking
  • Traction control
  • 4 mph reverse gear
  • Side stand

The air-cooled 148V 61Ah battery can be charged from either a standard UK socket (4.3 hours) or a 6.9 kW quick charger (1.6 hours). Using the quick charger it can be charged to 80% in just 45 minutes and the charging port is to the right of the steering column.

Unique to the BMW CE 04, at the moment, is the flat battery design which keeps the weight low down and allows room for things like storage above it.

We especially like the left ventilated glovebox with USB-C port, the absolutely huge 10.25" TFT 1920x720 pixel dash and the illuminated side helmet storage compartment.

The 15" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and a 160/60 at the rear.

Accessories include the quick charger (£850), A1 restriction, clear / orange small screen, clear tall screen (£90), comfort seat, heated seat, heated grips (£255), centre stand (£100), alarm (£225), TPMS (£130), panniers, dynamic traction control, dynamic riding mode, cornering ABS (ABS Pro), cornering headlight (Headlight Pro) and the SOS system.

There's also a huge range of seat styles available, from flat to medium and long with backrest humps.
