The little Vino seems to be a under rated bike around here and they are pretty cheap.


BMW makes TWO scooters: the C650GT and the C600 Sport. Note that the engines in both are built by Kymco.


The C1 was a Rotax powered scooter BMW had, for that money you could own a real bike. They don't make a full face helmet with a dark enough visor I would trust not to be identified riding this contraption.

I would love to have one of those! Did they even import them to the US?

I have a PCX150 downsized from a Burgman 650, I would have rather had the Forza but the money wasn't there and in my city you can park 150cc and smaller on the sidewalk downtown. That being said my perfect all around scooter at this time would be the Piaggio BV350

Had a Vespa GTS300. Quite modified including an Akra exhaust. Man was that thing fun. Surprised many vehicles from red lights, would take off like a rocket and would cruise at 140. With wider Michelin dual compound tires, enough grip to drag the pegs.

Looked just like this:

Yep, "Akra" short for Akrapovic brand exhaust.

I have full titanium Evolution systems, on all three Sportbikes. Beautifully engineered and made pieces, made in KameleON's country of Slovenia, by Igor Akrapovič.
