With the BMW C 600 Sport and the BMW C 650 GT, Abu Dhabi Motors, is offering two premium vehicles in the maxi scooter segment for the first time. The two vehicles combine the outstanding riding properties of a motorcycle with the specific agility and conceptual comfort of a scooter to create a new kind of dynamic riding experience.
Two dynamic maxi scooters for sports and touringThe differing characteristics of the concepts behind these two maxi scooters enable them to appeal to a wide target group: the C 600 Sport for sports-oriented riders and the C 650 GT for customers attaching greater importance to comfort and touring ability.
A striking feature of the athletic, dynamic scooter BMW C 600 Sport is its proactive seating position. This is the result of specially designed vehicle ergonomics geared towards the position of the running boards, seat and handlebars.
The C 650 GT meets higher expectations in terms of suitability for touring and long-distance trips with its more upright seating position for rider and passenger and the more comfortable seat with adjustable backrest for rider in conjunction with higher handlebars and comfortable running boards for the passenger. The C 650 GT also offers even more effective wind and weather protection with its larger, electrically adjustable windshield.
Powerful 2-cylinder in-line engine with CVT and characteristic soundThe new 2-cylinder in-line engine with 647 cc was completely newly developed by BMW Motorrad and has a rated output of 44 kW (60 bhp) at 7,500 rpm as well as a maximum torque of 66 Nm at 6,000 rpm. The power is transferred via an integrated CVT (continuously variable transmission). Fitted with a closed loop catalytic converter and an oxygen sensor, both scooters meet the future Euro 4 emission standard.
Suspension with easy handling and a high level of ride stabilityIn order to combine stable directional stability at high speeds on the motorway with easy handling in urban traffic, BMW uses a torsionally stiff hybrid compound structure for the chassis consisting of a tubular steel bridge and a die-cast aluminium unit. The 2-cylinder in-line engine also acts as a load-bearing element. The suspension components likewise fulfil more fastidious needs in terms of sporting character and comfort. At the front, an upside down fork presents a generous fixed fork diameter of 40 mm. The tail provides a horizontal spring strut on the left-hand side.
Powerful braking system with BMW Motorrad ABS fitted as standardThe C 600 Sport and C 650 GT are fitted with a generously sized braking system consisting of a twin disc brake at the front and a single disc brake at the rear, each 270 mm in diameter. At the same time, the BMW Motorrad ABS fitted as standard ensures maximum possible safety.
