BMW makes engines ranging from two cylinders all the way up to twelve. This latest addition to the lineup, however, has just one cylinder.
It's the new C 400 X, which joins the BMW Motorrad lineup as the smaller counterpart to the larger C 600 Sport and C 650 GT.
Unveiled at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, the C 400 X is a mid-size urban commuter scooter. At its heart sits a 350cc single-cylinder engine good for 34 horsepower and mated to a continuously variable transmission.
Don't let those humble specifications fool you, though: BMW has packed the C 400 X with modern technologies. It features electronic fuel injection, stability control, antilock brakes, and LED lighting.
Buyers will be able to specify fiber-optic daytime riding lights and a 6.5-inch color touchscreen display as well, and between Alpine White and metallic Zenith Blue paintjobs, with grey and black or red and black seats to give it a dynamic look.
