    BMW Scooter

    I know this is way off subject for this forum, but is there a forum that address the new scooters? It is my understanding that they have been introduced in europe, and will soon be in North America.
    Thank you for your indulgance.

    Indeed it is WAY OT.. so it's heading over to Motorrad - for discussion of all things BMW motorcycle related.

    Hang on, and please keep your hands and feet inside the posting for your safety and protection! Wait for the post to come to a complete stop before replying..

    So far there's no forum for the scooter on this site.

    from what I've seen of that "Scooter", it's bigger and more expensive than many "motorcycles"...

    And they were supposed to be available in the U.S. this past April but in final testing the chain final drive was stretching so BMW held them up until they could make a couple of fixes. I think October is now the target start date.
