This question displays a sad ignorance of the difference between all the above-named machines, and their prices. which isn't to say that the BMWs aren't overpriced...... If anyone's interested, my review of both the new BMW 650 maxiscooters is out now in the August 2012 issue of The Rider's Digest, No.169, which is available to read online or download for free from: www.theridersdigest.co.uk The maxiscoot feature starts on page 98 and runs all the way to p.119. The magazine is 160 pages in all and has a great variety of other features too. PNB in London, UK PS Meanwhile, BMW's electric maxiscoot prototypes were presented last weekend at the London Olympics. I hope to ride one soon. PPS I have of course ridden all of the above-named machines in all their various guises, and I have actually owned 3 Tmaxes and 3 Burgmen.
