If the bike had more rubber it would use it. This scooter handles well. After being off a bike for about 12 years this ride leaves me with total confidence and no worries.

    Did your dealer give you an estimate of when the scooters would arrive?

    Found the download for the C600/650 scooters, hope this takes you to the right area:
    http://www.bmw-motorrad.com/com/en/i...n_mobilty.html


    Can't get it to come up exactly, but if you click on this link, then click on "Product Information" on the left side of the screen, then "Urban Mobility", then you will have the icon to click on for the flyer, or product catalog, lists a lot of new stuff I didn't know about.

    Fuel economy

    I just got home from the gas station and a fill up of mid grade (89 octane). The fuel light came on as scheduled at 13 litres. As for the economy and take into consideration this is the break in time I got 46 miles to the gallon (American) or 56 miles to the gallon Canadian which is 19 km per litres. I would suspect that the economy will increase as the miles go on and the riding gets more consistent. As I also found the onboard computer has not been accurate as it has been telling me that my economy has been much better.

    Today: Just sat on the first C650GT to arrive at Eurocycles, as they were still putting it together. Very cool. Looks even better in person, great ergos, well-optioned, should be an awesome ride!

    Checked out one on display at my dealer yesterday.

    Kind of cute, kind of strange to see centerstand really close to rear wheel and then ~80% of the length of the vehicle in front of that. Heated handgrips and heated seats on that one. Didn't like the matte blue paint, color fine, matte not.

    You were looking at the sport model, on my C650 GT it is easy to set on the center stand

    Unless it was that dark sapphire blue, more black than blue. Not sure if the C600S comes with heated grips and seat.
    I am wondering if any of the C650GTs will NOT have Highline (heated grips and seat, LED daytime running light, etc)

    The heated stuff were options. Never said it was hard to put on centerstand, said it looked funny. The paint was not black/blue, just blue. It was the 600, i.e. no storage.

    Countryside received two GT's. They both sold in a day.
    First impression? Super low CG.

    Looks nice.

    Does the back tire touch the ground when on the centerstand?
