Dayco Delivers Belt Drive Technology For E-Scooter 

This collaboration is a steppingstone on the path to reducing CO2 emissions with chain to belt conversion, says Dayco.


With an aspiration to make the future sustainable for the next generation, Dayco says it is consistently partnering with prominent original equipment (OE) manufacturers to deliver its eco-friendly innovations. As an engine products and drive systems manufacturer for the automotive, heavy-duty, industrial and aftermarket segments, Dayco says it is not only known for its strong design capabilities but also is a preferred solution provider for delivering high-tech OE components around the world from its global manufacturing facilities. 


The company’s recent partnership with BMW Motorrad is one such example, wherein Dayco developed and delivered a tailored final drive belt solution for the BMW CE 04 electrically powered, zero-emissions scooter, with an ambition to bring a substantial impact on the personal and urban mobility segment.  

Dayco says the 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,” said Wouter Nijenhuis, executive vice president of OE sales and business development, Dayco. 


Dayco says this collaboration with BMW Motorrad is a steppingstone on the path to reducing CO2 emissions with chain to belt conversion, focusing on the urban mobility segment.
