The New 2024 BMW CE 02

Neither an e-motorbike nor an e-scooter but an eParkourer.

BMW Motorrad USA has presented the new 2024 BMW CE 02. It’s electric, designed to appeal to young people and it’s neither an e-motorbike nor an e-scooter. It’s an eParkourer, created for the urban environment: nimble, practical, tough and reduced to the essentials in terms of design. Large wheels meet the demand for robustness and at the same time ensure riding fun on many differing terrains.

The 2024 BMW CE 02 will arrive in the U.S. with an MSRP of $7,599 plus destination.

“With the CE 02, we are striving for something new at BMW Motorrad and want to be pioneers once again. Thanks to its unusual proportions and striking graphics, the new CE 02 is an uncomplicated, youthful form of single-track mobility. The reduced design language stands for lightness and fun. The focus is not on utility but on emotional appeal, riding pleasure and uncomplicated, almost intuitive use,” explained Edgar Heinrich, head of BMW Motorrad Design.

The disc wheels are designed to emphasize the proportions: black as the basic color for the frame, wheels, front fender and triple clamp fairing, and granite grey metallic matte for the motor cover offer a contrast. The reduced design offers plenty of scope for your own design options. In this way, the new BMW CE 02 becomes a way for the owner to express himself. There are almost no limits to realizing your own design ideas and customizing the BMW CE 02.

The optional HIGHLINE package adds forks, anodized in gold and a tape design in combination with Petrol as a contrasting color make the CE 02 look dynamic and future-oriented even when standing still.

The new BMW CE 02 is powered by an air-cooled, current-excited, synchronous motor. Power is supplied by two air-cooled lithium-ion batteries with an operating voltage of 48 volts and an energy content of 1.96 kilowatt-hours each, which can be removed for care and maintenance purposes. With an output of 15 horsepower and 40.6 pound-feet, the new CE 02 accelerates quickly from traffic lights and offers a dynamic riding experience. With a top speed of 59 mph, progress is speedy and a range of more than 56 miles (according to WMTC) allows for extended urban adventures. Thanks to its low weight of only 291 pounds and the low seat height of only 29.5 inches, the new CE 02 is also characterized by its flickable handling characteristics.

Torque is transmitted from the synchronous motor on the righthand side of the vehicle via a toothed belt to an intermediate shaft. From there, another toothed belt on the left side takes over the function of the secondary drive to the rear wheel. This sophisticated construction ensures the best possible center of gravity for neutral handling. Automatic Stability Control (ASC) ensures safe power transmission between the rear tire and varied road surface. Recuperation Stability Control (RSC) functions similarly to an engine drag torque control and specifically reduces the drag torque in overrun mode to keep the vehicle stable. At the same time, recuperation takes place in overrun mode. Reversing aid makes maneuvering simple and easy.

Ride Modes

The new CE 02 comes with two standard ride modes: Flow and Surf. Flow offers the optimal drive set-up for floating along in urban traffic with a softer throttle response and medium energy recuperation. Surf provides a ride experience familiar to surfers: A direct throttle response permits dynamic acceleration, and zero recuperation enables maximum coasting and effortless cruising. The Flash driving mode is available as a sporty and dynamic addition and is part of the optional HIGHLINE package. In this mode, the new eParkourer from BMW Motorrad provides a very responsive, sporty and dynamic riding experience.

External Charger

The new BMW CE 02 comes standard with a 0.9-kilowatt external charger, which enables charging to be carried out quickly and conveniently using standard household outlets. A quicker 1.5-kilowatt charger is available as part of the optional HIGHLINE package.

  • 0.9 kilowatts: 20% to 80% in 170 minutes
  • 1.5 kilowatts: 20% to 80% in 140 minutes


Thanks to its low weight of only 291 pounds and the low seat height of only 29.5 inches, the new CE 02 is characterized by its agile handling. The new BMW CE 02 relies on a torsionally rigid double-loop frame made of tubular steel. The front wheel is guided by hydraulically damped 37-millimeter telescopic forks, while a single-sided die-cast aluminum swingarm is used at the rear, along with a directly linked shock absorber with adjustable spring base.

The 2.5-by-14-inch front and 3.5-by-14-inch rear cast light alloy disk wheels are fitted with wide 120/80-14 and 150/70-14 tires. The BMW CE 02 is decelerated by disc brakes at the front and rear and supported by BMW Motorrad ABS at the front wheel. Adjustable hand levers allow you to adapt hand reach to meet your personal preferences. The footrests allow the rider two leg positions in solo mode: relaxed on the rider footrests or sporty-dynamic on the passenger footrests.

TFT Screen

The cockpit includes an easy-to-read TFT display with information about speed, battery charge status and much more. A USB-C charging socket allows you to power a smartphone. Using the BMW Motorrad Connected app, you can view the predicted end of charging on your smartphone thanks to networking via Bluetooth, same as on the BMW CE 04. When equipped with the optional HIGHLINE package, the cradle mode allows the BMW Motorrad app in the smartphone (held in a smartphone holder) to be controlled safely as an additional display using the keypad on the handlebar. With the BMW Motorrad Connected Services (also included in the HIGHLINE package) the charging status and other CE 02 vehicle information can be viewed at any-time via the app.

For information updates on the smartphone, the optional HIGHLINE package provides a direct data connection between the CE 02 and a backend (currently in Europe, U.S. and Canada). The free BMW Motorrad Connected app also offers additional functions such as ride recording, which can also be shared with friends.
