The new BMW CE 02 - neither e-scooter nor e-motorcycle:
The cool eParkourer for cities and urban
With the new BMW CE 02, BMW Motorrad is presenting another
e-vehicle for urban conurbations after the CE 04 and is thus consistently pursuing its electric mobility strategy. Thanks to its electric drive, trend-setting design and innovative solutions, the eParkourer is a dynamic partner for a new kind of mobility and provides great riding fun in an urban environment.
Progressive design with new proportions and plenty of room for individualisation.
The new BMW CE 02 represents a new way of accessing
BMW Motorrad. It’s electric, it appeals especially to young people and it’s neither an e-motorbike nor an e-scooter. It’s an eParkourer. Created for the city and the urban environment. Nimble, practical, robust and reduced to the essentials in terms of design. Large wheels meet the demand for robustness and at the same time ensure riding fun on many terrains. Black as the basic colour for the frame, wheels, front fender and triple clamp fairing at the top, and granite grey metallic matt for the engine cover offer just as exciting a contrast as the interplay of matt and high-gloss surfaces. In the special HIGHLINE version, the new CE 02 puts in an extroverted and colourful appearance. Forks anodised in gold and a tape design in combination with Petrol as a contrasting colour make the CE 02 look dynamic and future-oriented even when standing still.
Powerful drive, low weight and practice-oriented range.
The powerful drive enables the 11kW CE 02 to accelerate quickly at
traffic lights and offers a dynamic riding experience. With a top
speed of 95 km/h, progress is speedy on freeways and a range of more
than 90 km allows for extended urban adventures.
Thanks to its low weight of only 132 kg and the low seat height of only 750 mm, the new CE 02 is also characterised by its playful handling characteristics.
Two riding modes "Flow" and "Surf" as standard and "Flash" as optional equipment and original BMW Motorrad accessory.
The new CE 02 comes with the "Flow" and "Surf" riding modes as standard. "Flow" offers the optimal set-up for cruising along in urban traffic, while "Surf" provides a dynamic riding experience beyond the bustling city traffic. The "Flash" driving mode is also available as a sporty and dynamic addition as part of the HIGHLINE optional equipment and as an original BMW Motorrad accessory.
External charger as standard and a quick charger as optional equipment and as an Original BMW Motorrad accessory.
The new BMW CE 02 comes as standard with an external charger with a charging power of 0.9 kW, which enables charging processes to be carried out quickly and conveniently at standard household sockets. It's even faster with the quick charger with 1.5 kW charging power, which is available in the HIGHLINE optional equipment and as an Original BMW Motorrad accessory.
Chassis with double-loop tube frame, telescopic forks, single-sided swingarm and cast light alloy wheels.
As far as the chassis is concerned the new BMW CE 02 relies on a torsionally rigid double-loop frame made of tubular steel. Hydraulically damped telescopic forks operate at the front, while a single-sided swingarm and a directly pivoted shock absorber are used at the rear. Wide tyres are mounted on cast light alloy wheels in disc wheel design and disc brakes ensure safe deceleration at the front and rear. BMW Motorrad ABS is featured at the front.
TFT display, USB-C charging port and connectivity solutions.
In the cockpit, an easy-to-read TFT display informs the rider about riding speed, battery charge status and much more. A USB-C charging socket also allows you to supply a smartphone with power. Using the BMW Motorrad Connected app, your smartphone shows you the predicted end of charging thanks to networking via Bluetooth, as on the BMW CE 04. In the HIGHLINE variant, the cradle mode allows the BMW Motorrad app in the smartphone (held in a smartphone holder) to be controlled safely as an additional display using the keypad on the handlebar. It is also possible to record your trips using the app. With the BMW Motorrad Connected Services (also included in the HIGHLINE package) the charging status and other CE 02 vehicle information can be viewed at any time from anywhere via the app.
