C650GT vs K1200GT

Here are some pics of my new C650GT Step-Thru motorcycle side by side compared with the 2007 K1200GT I traded in.

Is that the "Official" term BMW uses for a scooter ?? A "Step-Thru Motorcycle" ???

No, I just made it up this morning actually. But after reading everything I could get my hands on and upon closer observation it seems a more appropriate name then scooter. It is much closer related to a motorcycle then any scooter currently on the road. This includes the Suzuki Burgman. Now those of you who own said Burgman don't think I'm slighting your ride, it's just not as well refined technologically as the BMW. Doesn't mean it's not a nice ride, just not the same other them the pass-thru design.

I would submit to my fellow riders not to judge the C-Bikes before you investigate and don't write it off before you ride one.
