Verdict

The C600 Sport is a great machine that successfully fills the gap between motorcycles and scooters and is able to offer a perfect compromise between practicality, fun and efficiency. So as far as performances are concerned you’ll hardly find it any major faults.

Though, we’ll have to admit that this great scooter comes with a pretty big disadvantage which is the peppered price. The C 600 Sport may be a great piece of German engineering but it is still a scooter and the $ 9,590 price tag is a bit too much for what it has to offer.
