As I made my way through the BMW exhibit at NYIAS, browsing cars such as the F10 M5, 3 Series GT, and M6 Gran Coupe, I spotted a lone motorbike in the back corner, placed behind the 3 Series GT. It was the BMW C650 GT.

(Full Disclosure: Yes I am aware that I do not need this for this type of post, but I just wanted to give a background of myself as this is my first post, and also look cool while doing it.

I am not a car journo. I am a sixteen-year-old high school junior in New York City who was given the opportunity to go to NYIAS on the second press day by a friend that dished me two private tour tickets. This was a dream for me as I’ve been scheming a plan all year to get in on one of the press days. I thoroughly enjoyed my night at the auto show and saw many amazing vehicles, but one that caught my eye was this lonely motorbike(?).)

The BMW C650 GT comes equipped with a 60 horsepower, liquid-cooled, 4 stroke inline two cylinder engine that’s paired with a CVT. Other features include a center stand, a tool kit, a power socket, a multifunction display, and even an illuminated storage area. If that stuff isn’t cool, I’m not sure what is.

Now, I am not by any means a fan of motorcycles, scooters, motorbikes, or anything of the sort, nor do I really know anything much about them. But I couldn’t help but feel sorry for this poor bike, and I just wanted to give it the attention I feel it deserves.

Hell, it didn’t even look like it was cared for in transit!
