BMW’s Motorrad Multi-Controller offers integrated operation where the rider can access vehicle and connectivity functions quickly and without being distracted from what is happening on the road. In addition to the convenience of being able to use the phone and listen to music during travel, there is also the benefit of effortless navigation by means of a practical system of arrows.

Storage comprises two integrated compartments and the Flexcase under the single-section seat. The BMW C 400 X comes with a choice of two paint finishes – metallic Zenith Blue and non-metallic Alpine White.
