BMW C400 GT is a sporty scooter that is placed over G310s in international markets. What will be its price here will be interesting to know…
Honda’s officially promised Forza 300 (that has now been updated to 350) hasn’t made it to India yet. But the baton for the country’s sportiest scooter has been picked up by, surprise surprise… BMW Motorrad!
The German motorcycle maker is the latest to join the bandwagon of maxi-scooters for our market. In a big surprise, it has just teased its C400 GT on its social channels.
Scooters have been a growth area in India but more recently, maxi-scooters – that are sportier, have picked pace. The C400 GT, that is teased for our market, comes with a 350cc, Euro 5 compliant, single cylinder motor that churns 34 bhp of peak power at 7500 rpm and 35 Nm of max torque at 6000 rpm.
The BMW C400 GT has four LED lamps with DRL surrounds. Since the scooter is capable of doing higher speeds, it has a large windscreen, similar to motorcycles.
It has discs both at the front as well as rear. ABS will definitely be standard. Other key features include keyless operation, full color TFT instrumentation, Automatic Stability Control, etc.
Now, the most important part will be the pricing. Since this would be the first scooter from the brand in India, even guesstimates may not work. It will be premium for sure – but how much is the question…
