« Back BMW C650 GT
The GT is the better of the two C650 scooters if you're looking for practicality and mile-munching capabilities. The 647cc parallel-twin motor provides plenty of punch, BMW have made changes to the CVT transmission for better acceleration in traffic and a higher top speed.Although noticeably heavier and slower to steer than the Sport, the GT is the scooter that inspires a little more confidence in the corners as the extra 12kg of mass help to flatten out any mid-corner bumps. The GT's seat is more than comfortable enough for long journeys, and the lower back support helps keep you upright and prevents the onset of back ache. The footboards are wide and spacious, so you'll find somewhere for your feet no matter how tall you are. The 270mm twin discs up front struggle to bring the heavy GT to a stop with any urgency - a good squeeze of the back brake is required too.
