J.Juan equips the BMW CE 04; an electric scooter ahead of its time

BMW has just introduced its new electric scooter solution called CE 04. It is a model full of new developments and top-notch technological solutions that will undoubtedly mark the trends of the great future in urban mobility

Among the innovations it brings, its system of brake calipers stands out that are manufactured by the Barcelona company J.Juan.

For the front train, the BMW CE 04 equips a 4-piston 28-millimeter radial caliper for efficient, clean and smooth braking.

On the rear train, BMW and J.Juan have opted for a triple braking solution. On the one hand, the electric motor itself exerts its own braking, which BMW has wanted to reinforce with a dual system composed of a single-piston, 32-millimeter rear caliper and a parking brake. Both are united by a boomerang nexus that integrates perfectly into this BMW CE 04 to create a dynamic, comprehensive braking solution.
