Most important FAQs about range and charging

How does my riding style influence the range of my BMW CE 04?

It goes without saying that the riding style affects consumption and thus range. Select Eco riding mode to maximise the range of your BMW CE 04. The scooter also features an energy recovery system that charges the high-voltage battery on the basis of recuperation. Thinking ahead while riding, moderate acceleration and avoiding riding at maximum speed for prolonged periods will additionally contribute towards maximising the range.

Will the battery of the BMW CE 04 wear out over time?

The capacity of a lithium-ion battery drops throughout its period of use. In our battery certificate we specify the best possible service for our customers in this context. It is valid for the first 40,000 kilometres and ends five years after the initial delivery or first registration. If the high-voltage battery is damaged during this time we will repair any material damage caused free of charge. This also applies to an excessive loss of capacity. Visit your authorised BMW Motorrad Retailer to find out more.

Can I also ride the BMW CE 04 if I don’t have a quick-charging option available?

Of course, in this case it is possible to charge the vehicle using the standard charging cable at conventional domestic sockets and obviously also at public charging columns. The charging process will then just take longer compared with the optional quick-charging option.

What do I need to take into account when charging at domestic sockets?

The flexible fast charger mode 2 with 2.3 kW charging capacity forms part of your BMW CE 04’s standard equipment*. With a length of five metres it guarantees access to a domestic socket in most cases. Do not use extension leads or power strips.

*Market-specific offer

How do I find a matching charging option for my BMW CE 04 on the go?

You can find charging options using the BMW Charging app (and all other charging apps) as well as using the BMW Motorrad Connected app. You can also have the on-board navigation system guide you to charging columns using the point of interest function.

Which charging cable does BMW Motorrad offer for charging at public charging columns?

The BMW CE 04 can be charged with up to 6.9 kW using the optional quick charger. As standard it charges with up to 2.3 kW. Country-specific differences in charging station installations require single-phase or three-phase charging cables to charge the bike.


For this purpose, BMW Motorrad currently offers a range of three Mode 3 cables to deliver optimum charging results for everyone. These cables differ in charging performance, size and weight:


·       Cables with up to 7.4 kW charging power: 1-phase, 32 amps, 2.35 kg in weight. Recommended in countries with mainly single-phase charging stations. 

·       Cables with up to 22 kW charging power: 3-phase, 32 amps, 3.3 kg in weight. Makes it possible to max out the CE 04’s charging capacity in any situation. As a result, the cable is a little bigger and heavier than the other two variants.

·       Cables with up to 11 kW charging power: 3-phase, 20 amps, 2.15 kg in weight. This is our smallest and lightest charging cable. However, at single-phase charging stations you will not be using the full potential of the CE 04’s charging speed. Yet, in countries with mainly 3-phase charging stations it is a good and practical solution.


Please note that the range of Mode 3 cables may vary from country to country. 

How can I access the charge status of my BMW CE 04?

The charge status of the BMW CE 04 is indicated on the vehicle’s TFT display. You can simultaneously use the BMW Motorrad Connected app to access the plugged-in scooter’s estimated end of charging.
