6. BMW C650 GT


Tom’s review of the BMW C650 GT perfectly explains why this scooter is on this list. Instead of feeling vulnerable on the freeway, the C650’s ample power inspires confidence to zip around cars and tour busses with ease. Then once off the highway, the BMW’s agility was surprising while carving canyons or going through a roundabout.

Being a scooter, there’s no shortage of storage, as the two glove compartments can hold small things like wallets or phones, and the underseat storage area is able to swallow two — two — full-face helmets! Of course, shifting isn’t an issue either, giving you one less thing to worry about on the daily commute. BMW categorizes its scooters under the Urban Mobility moniker, making its addition to this list an easy one.
