Dayco’s robust and efficient high-quality timing belt for rear-drive application delivers high system performance with an increased driving range, which allows the BMW CE 04 to run smoothly and silently. This optimized complete belt drive solution was designed and developed with close engineering support and a strong partnership with BMW Motorrad.

“Dayco has the most silent, maintenance-free belts, which can be customized as per the customer requirements and have best-in-class NVH performance, with no lubrication required. Our timing belt drive supplied for the BMW CE 04 is clean and lightweight and in contrast to the conventional chain, doesn’t stretch, which makes it the safest solution for all the personal mobility drivetrain applications,” stated Wouter Nijenhuis, Executive Vice President of OE Sales and Business Development, Dayco.

For more than 115 years, Dayco has delivered innovative energy-saving timing belt drive solutions with reduced power losses for the next generation of scooters, bikes, e-bikes, and motorcycles. Dayco also continues to embrace new technologies and smart partnerships to achieve a sustainable environment. This collaboration between Dayco and BMW Motorrad is a steppingstone on the path to reducing CO2 emissions with chain to belt conversion, focusing on the urban mobility segment.
