Got to tell you, this is a big, heavy scooter! I was sort of surprised by the weight.

I'll be back in the States tomorrow and see if anyone could post the photo I took.
Your comment made me look up the weight on these. Jeebus! The C600 Sport is 549lbs curb weight, while the C650 GT is 575lbs! My big pig R1200GS is 495lbs in comparison (438 dry!!). A 2012 Piaggio BV 350 has a dry weight of 390 (curb weight guess- 415??)

I won't have to worry about developing scooter lust over these- simply no way I could envision comfortably handling that weight for general purpose scootering. Crikey.
