These are regular bikes, but thanks to having two wheels at the rear, you can ride them with a car license.

  • Assistance Systems for Two-Wheelers

    Assistance Systems that are common for cars seem to be exotic or unconceivable, when it comes to two-wheelers. But that's not the case anymore for blind sport alert systems, which are offered by BMW for the very first time. They are perfect for the high traffic load in big cities, which are the home grounds for the new maxi-scooter C 650 GT. We test the 60 hp big scooter including its assistance systems in Valencia.
