In the chassis area, the BMW C 400 X sports a tubular frame made of steel. Suspension and damping are taken care of by telescopic forks at the front and two spring struts at the rear. The set-up and spring travel have been selected to ensure a sporty, dynamic ride and good comfort. Brake performance and safety are provided by the twin disc brakes at the front in conjunction with a single disc brake at the rear, along with ABS as standard.

In addition to standard LED lighting, a multifunctional instrument cluster with 6.5‑inch full-colour TFT screen is available as an ex-works option. In conjunction with the BMW Motorrad Multi-Controller this means the rider can access vehicle and connectivity functions quickly and without being distracted from what is happening on the road.
