2013 BMW C650GT & C600 Sport in June 2012 Cycle World Magazine

June 2012 Cycle World Magazine has a nice First Ride article on page 46-50 on the new BMW scooters. Very nice pictures too. 60 HP at 7500 rpm and nearly 49 foot-pounds of torque at 6000 rpm. I want one but bet maintenance wouldn't be easy for the home mechanic and probably costly at the dealership.

You'd expect otherwise
It IS a BMW, after all

/-I thought they looked pretty cool. BMWs seem to have higher maintenance, etc, but after owning a BMW R1200GS and a Suzuki Vstrom DL1000 at the same time (different locations) i can tell you the BMWs definitely offer more. Cost more, but you get more. Kinda depends on what you want and can afford, i think

I currently have a 650 Burgman, hope to get the new C650GT

Try the Honda Integra NC700 first, just in case.

RoadRunner mag also has a Riding Impressions story on the two new BMWs in the issue I received this past weekend. Generally positive. No word on when it will arrive or how much it will cost.
