BMW C600 Sport (2012 onwards)

If you like both scooters and sport bikes, but can’t decide which one suits you best, then the BMW C600 Sport is a perfect motorcycle for you. It provides the practicality of a scooter and the performance of a sport bike.

The BMW C600 Sport comes with an aggressive design and it has a lot of interesting features to offer such as an ABS system and manually adjustable screen. On top of that, you will be able to use its expandable under-seat compartment and two boxes for your helmet or gloves.

Unfortunately, the bike is very expensive and therefore it is unable to compete with its Japanese rivals in terms of value.

A2 Licence Compliance

The BMW C600 Sport is a 647cc A2-friendly bike. It has a power output of 44 kW (60 bhp), which exceeds the 35 kW limit needed for an A2 licence. The bike has to be restricted by cca 20% to be A2 licence compliant.


You will need a restrictor to ride the BMW C600 Sport on an A2 licence. See the BMW C600 Sport specifications table for restriction info, and the restrictor kits section to see what restrictors are available for the BMW C600 Sport.
