So it might not be as bad as it sounded then. I was worried about coasting up to traffic lights and having it frequently stall on me, potentially putting me in a dangerous (or at least more stressful situation) with so many distracted drivers these days. Unlike a motorcycle that can just pull in the clutch and restart on a roll, scooters have to apply the brake first and it might not always be easy to pull off out of the way of traffic to restart. I assumed these would be better engineered/supported for the premium price paid. My Chinese scoot only stalled once when I had to do a quick stop and the CVT transmission probably didn't have time to disengage. However the BMW does check off more boxes for me than any other based on the limited options available in the U.S. market.
