Nope, not a wing. It's the lighting. The piece is actually angled down and in.

Default F650 vs F800

I think that woman is sitting on the new BMW F650GS, not the F800. Note the conventional forks and the single front disc.

Don't know. Unless there's a dumbed-down, "city" version of the F800.

Yep. In the photo gallery, it says F650GS on the number plate.

No the model is the F800GS. This will replace the 650.

This is something we're working on. For now, go into the photo gallery to see larger pics. Thanks.

Sharp eyes, Dave! You're correct, so we're changing the caption to reflect this point. Thanks for pointing this out.

I thought the 650 was being cancled and replaced with the 800? Does this mean the 650 is staying? If so, I't looks like it has been redesigned a bit. Will the price be the same? Is it the same 650 as the previous model?

It's also an oil-cooler.

Do tell! I noticed the braided lines near it, but didn't make the connection. It's a cool bike, no doubt.

Default mea culpa

The 800 and 650 are actually the same bike, mechanically speaking, the 650 IS actually a detuned 800cc..... As someone said here, it's really the dumbed down version. Twisted logic, I know, I know. We'll report on this scoot too.
