BMW C650 GT v Honda NC700X

Quite an interesting comparison test. The NC is a 'better scooter than the scooter' - in town, at least: Comparison: 2013 BMW C 650 GT ...

    Think I'd manage a non DCT version and enjoy the considerable saving of the NC700x

    Am curious to try and test ride one of these bikes very soon, more as a transport solution than a motorcycle IYSWIM

    I want motorcycles to be a transport solution. They are much too important to be toys for middle aged men on sunny Sundays.

    Fair one, I guess I should have added 'economical transport solution' I clocked 50,000 miles in the saddle last year, and the f800s took a lot of the strain admirably and with sensible costs.

    Whilst my KTM has clocked 50,000 miles now with little to grumble about if I'd done that in a year I'd have spent a considerably larger chunk of coin away to do so.

    It's talents are wasted on a dull commute, but for touring, scratching or hacking up a goat track in the dolomites it gives me a smiles per gallon ratio a bike like the nc700 never would


    Edit if anyone ever makes the bike that does both I'll buy that!
