Winning our Reader’s Choice award for top scooter is the same scoot your MO staff picked, the BMW C650… wait, what? You voted for the $10,999 Honda NM4? Wow, we didn’t see that one coming. In fact, the final voting wasn’t even that close, either – the Honda’s 36.3% of the votes gave it a commanding lead over the second-place finisher, BMW’s C650GT, with only 21.4% of the votes. The Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS came in a close third, with 19.6% of the votes.

2015 Honda NM4 Review


Best Scooter Of 2014

The NM4 is certainly unique, and its quirky exterior attracts attention like nothing else. As far as commuting duties go, its fuel-efficient 670cc parallel-Twin is great for the task and its Dual Clutch Transmission is responsive in ways a conventional CVT can’t be. A low, 25.6-inch seat height is attractive to riders of various shapes and sizes, with the added bonus of its passenger seat doubling as a backrest. Even though the small storage compartments were a disappointment to our own John Burns in his review, they clearly didn’t seem to bother you much. Its looks might be polarizing, but the NM4 is a worthwhile people’s champ in the scooter category.
