Thread: 2nd Generations Scooter Quesitons

    2nd Generations Scooter Quesitons

    Hey guys, I'm still an occasional lurker. Question, I haven't kept up with the second generation scoots, any big issues? I had no trouble for 2 years/10,000 miles on my C600 Sport before I sold it. But, Mrs. GH has expressed a little disappointment in not being able to go occasionally with me any more. So again, any reason to avoid a 2017/2018 model?
    Thanks,
    Sean

    Lol. So what about service intervals? Still the same?

    It's a MUCH better bike:

    1.) hydraulic tensioner
    2.) upgraded clutch
    3.) better gearing
    4.) revamped variator
    5.) re-designed body...better looking!
    6.) much faster off the line
    7.) C650 Sport is now discontinued to the USA; it's like the Tmax, now!

    There is one (relatively) near you, a new demo with 4 miles on it, $750.00 off. GRIND them to get it under $10,000!!! Get it now or you never will...

    Thanks Skutorr. If I go back to a BMW scoot, it'd be a GT. Looking for weekends away sort of thing. Still, no new owners are chiming in.

    Another very happy gt owner here in England, I've got a R1100gs as well but the scoot gets far more use, they're just so practical.

    Just wondering, aren't "Quesitons" sub-atomic particles of an indeterminate nature

    Well, that left everyone speechless

    Hey Sean, I, too, think about re-visiting the BMW C bikes. Spend most of my time on a 1200GSA, but there was always something about that touring scooter. The convenience, low cog/super easy to handle, plenty of power. Hmmmm....might be trying to talk myself into another one.
