The G 650 GS continues the success story of BMW Motorrad’s single cylinder engines in impressive fashion – with a solid output of 48 bhp at 6500 rpm and a maximum torque of 44.25 foot pounds at 5000 rpm. Newcomers to motorcycling can reduce the output to 34 bhp. The ride feel on the G 650 GS is thrilling, too – wherever you’re going. Whether on the road or over rough terrain – the reliable, tried-and-tested chassis with central spring strut on the swinging fork ensures crisp handling. Membership of the enduro family is highlighted in this new machine with the upright seating position and an impressive 6.7 inch of spring travel at the front with 165 mm at the rear. The moderate standard seat height of 2.6 feet and the lowered suspension option make this experience accessible to virtually anyone. The G 650 GS is robust, powerful and yet still extremely light, weighing just 423 pounds (with a full tank). With its low fuel consumption and simple handling, it is not just ideal for beginning motorcyclists. Its slim, athletic stature in a youthful and typically enduro-style design stands for uncomplicated riding pleasure and pure fun. Even the paint finish is a real eye-catcher – whether in hot-blooded Orange Red or pure Aura White. The optionally available equipment features of the new BMW enduro include comfortable hand protectors, aluminium sump guard, a high windshield and practical Vario cases. The options make the machine a touch safer still: a centre stand makes for improved stability, the heated grips provide a more solid grasp and ABS prevents the wheels from locking.
