World Premieres

A new form of urban, two-wheel mobility

With an electric drivetrain, trailblazing design and innovative connectivity solutions, the BMW Motorrad Definition CE 04 is setting out to change the face of the scooter segment as we know it.

A production-based look at the future of BMW Motorrad

The segment-shaping design of the Definition CE 04 embodies a new urban aesthetic and stylistic evolution. Many innovative elements and details of the BMW Motorrad Concept Link – which was seen as a radical vision for the distant future back in 2017 – are now approaching production readiness. 

Clear lines, large surfaces in Mineral white metallic and precise forms create modern proportions. The two-colored division supports this impression. The technical heart of the Definition CE 04 – made up of the drive system, single-sided swing arm, spring strut and tooth belt – is painted matt black. Plus, the slim batteries in the underfloor section and the compact drive unit on the rear wheel offer scope to explore new avenues.

Connected and ergonomic

The bench design is one of many examples of the excellent ergonomics of the BMW Motorrad Definition CE 04. It allows riders to climb on easily from the rear and improves ergonomics for single riders, regardless of their leg length or body size. 

When it comes to digital aspects, the focus is once again on practical and user-friendly solutions for the BMW Motorrad Definition CE 04. For example, the rider can connect with their surroundings via a combination of the BMW Motorrad Definition CE 04 and their smartphone. The 10.25-inch display is the largest of its kind so far in the scooter segment and serves as an interface between the rider’s analogue and digital worlds.
