BMW CE 04 Vagabund Moto Concept

This BMW CE 04 custom e-scooter was a collaboration between Vagabund Moto GmbH and BMW Motorrad Austria.

While the international customizing scene around BMW Motorrad primarily devotes its inspiring creativity, excellent craftsmanship and continuous flow of new ideas to the BMW Motorrad Heritage models R 18 and R nineT, an exceptional project based on the BMW CE 04 has now taken shape in Austria. In collaboration with BMW Motorrad Austria in Salzburg, customizing specialist Vagabund Moto GmbH in Graz, Austria, has created the BMW CE 04 Vagabund Moto Concept: a stylish and multifunctional e-scooter based on the BMW CE 04 for urban use.

“Everyone defines the mobility of the future in their own individual way. With the BMW CE 04 Vagabund Moto Concept, we now present our own idea of a stylish and multifunctional urban e-scooter that shows just how mobility needs are as individual as each personality. We haven’t reinvented the wheel, but we have taken a new look at function. We call it drawing on the synergies between functionality and aesthetics in a way that is suitable for everyday use,” said Paul Brauchart, founder and managing director of Vagabund Moto GmbH, explaining the philosophy behind BMW CE 04 Vagabund Moto Concept.

Accordingly, this made-in-Austria custom e-scooter not only has a particularly attractive color scheme in white, dark green, beige and black, but it also features various functional elements created in a fresh, modern design style and focusing on a youthful target group. For example, a friendly smiley face not only provides a fascinating visual accentuation on the front wheel hub, but it also appears on the glass of the indicator lights. What has remained, however, is the impressive technical concept of the BMW CE 04 with key data such as 31-kilowatt (42 horsepower) maximum output, dynamic acceleration of 2.6 seconds from 0 to 50 km/h, a range of 130 kilometers (according to World Motorcycle Test Cycle (WTMC)) and a charging time of just 65 minutes from 0% to 80% — with an optional fast charger at maximum charging current.

“With this customizing project, it was very important to us to emphasize the enormous variability of the BMW CE 04. At the same time, it was to be a vehicle that appeals in particular to young, sporty people in an urban environment and still be suitable for every type of customer. The fresh, modern design of the CE 04 is particularly in keeping with its aspiration to a sporty lifestyle,” added Oliver Balzer, head of BMW Motorrad Austria.

In keeping with the motto “Action meets Fashion,” the BMW CE 04 Vagabund Moto Concept was given a functional top case to supplement the standard storage space, along with a surfboard with a transport system integrated in the vehicle — whether for a trip to the sea or to the nearest lake. “The surfboard isn’t just a piece of sports equipment: It’s also a metaphor for a sustainable urban lifestyle. The BMW CE 04 Vagabund Moto Concept combines work, leisure and individual flair, demonstrating that there needs to be no contradiction between any of these areas,” concluded Oliver Balzer.
