Yes, you can ride the BMW C600 Sport (2012 onwards) on an A2 motorbike licence. However, you will need to fit a restrictor kit to reduce its power output and make it A2 licence compliant!
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.
