BMW CE 04 with a smiley face

March 1, 2023

BMW motorcycles, especially the R 18 and R nineT, are sought after for customization. Special creations have already appeared on the scene, such as the BMW R 18 Spirit of Passion or the BMW R 18 The Wall. Less obvious is a customized version of the motor scooter BMW CE 04, such as this Vagabund Moto Concept. That one is the result of a collaboration between BMW Motorrad and the Austrian company Vagabund Moto in Graz.

CE 04 with smiley face

The BMW CE 04 stands out in particular for its color scheme of white, dark green, beige and black. Funny too, the small top case in two tone colors. At the front wheel you can see a nice gimmick, a smiley in the heart of the brake discs and in the glasses of the turn signals. The surfboard is more than an extra. In fact, you can take them with you using a suspension system specially designed for the CE 04.

Surfboard can come along

This custom especially shows how to change the look and feel with a few different ingredients. How the BMW CE 04 also lends itself easily to personalization. “Everyone defines mobility of the future in their own way. The BMW CE 04 Vagabund Moto Concept is our idea of a stylish and functional urban e-scooter,” said Paul Brauchart of Vagabund Moto GmbH.

Performance BMW CE 04

The powertrain is all-electric and nothing has changed about that. So also this special of the BMW CE 04 delivers a maximum power of 31 kW (42 hp), accelerates from 0-50 km/h in 2.6 seconds and offers a driving range of up to 130 km. Charging can go from 0 to 80% in 65 minutes with a fast charger and at maximum charging current.

Small disclaimer: it is not in the price list. Because yes: it is a concept! So looking, but not buying.
