BMW C650 Sport (2015 onwards)

The C650 Sport is another BMW’s maxi-scooter that features super-cool design and lots of power under the hood. The bike is equipped with a manually adjustable screen and multiple storage areas for helmets or smaller items. It is very practical for both long rides and urban commuting.

The motorcycle is very similar to the BMW C600 Sport, which has the same power output, but a smaller engine capacity. Both of these A2-friendly scooters are reliable and their build quality is excellent. However, compared to other brands in this category, the BMW bikes are overpriced.
