Why the Name Change?

First of all I'm new here, Second of all what necessitated the need to swap the nomenclature from 12C to 650S? Its exactly the same car with styling updates...

I know they named it 650 because of it's power output, not sure why they went with a totally different way of naming it.

Would have preferred if they called it the "16C" or something along those lines.

Very common nowadays to include the power of the engine on the name to attract the younger and aggressive generation of drivers. Good example is my buddy's younger brother. I was helping my buddy installing the parts from 4WheelOnline onto his Jeep when his brother came on his new Panigale 959 coming from Bandit GSF400. He's surely one aggressive boy and prefer the bikes with CC name on it.
