Scooters more dangerous than motorcycles?

Assuming that one rides a motorcycle “sensibly”, shouldn’t a scooter of equivalent power be more dangerous due to less visibility and smaller wheel size?

In other words, are scooters safer simply due to the fact they are purchased by more “responsible” riders, who are less likely to hit the mountain twisties? Or is there some critical factor that I’m missing from the equation?

The lower center of gravity is the only real advantage that I see in something like a Burgman 650.
