BMW G 650 GS from £99


BMW G 650 GS – the success story of the BMW Motorrad single-cylinder engine continues.
With the new BMW G 650 GS, BMW Motorrad has added   yet another attractive member to its BMW GS family. With its   lean, wiry offroad stature, the new single-cylinder enduro cuts a   cheeky, light, and adventurous figure. At the same time it stands out   clearly from its rivals in terms of quality, equipment, and comfort.   In conjunction with its relatively low weight and the low seat height,   it presents an attractive means of entry to the passion of motorbiking   and the fascinating world of BMW GS adventure.

New edition based on a tried and tested platform with high torque and low consumption single-cylinder engine.
The new G 650 GS has opted for a technology on a widely   used basis: the popular and successful BMW F 650 GS   with single-cylinder drive of many years’ standing. This   liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine with double overhead camshafts   has a displacement of 652 cc, delivers 35 kW (48 hp) at   6500 rpm, and develops a maximum torque of 60 Nm at   5000 rpm. As an optional accessory, the vehicle is also available   in a power reduction version, delivering 25 kW (34 hp) at   6500 rpm and 47 Nm at 4500 rpm.Thanks to electronic fuel injection, twin-spark ignition, the high   geometrical compression ratio of 11.5:1, and a closed-loop catalytic   converter, this tried and tested single-cylinder engine is designed   for the maximum level of riding pleasure with the best possible   efficiency and high environmental compatibility. It shines forth with   exemplary low consumption values of, for example, only 3.2 litres per   100 km at a constant 90 km/h.In conjunction with the claw-shifted five-speed gearbox, the free   revving single-cylinder engine in the new BMW G 650 GS   provides for a thrilling experience, in particular on snaking country   roads. Its beefy torque curves and good response also allow detours   handled with supreme ease beyond the asphalt of roads.

Robust suspension technology for great riding pleasure on the country road and on easy terrain.

The suspension of the new G 650 GS was developed primarily   for running on country roads and takes the form of an agile chassis   with a bridge frame of steel tubing and a bolt-on framework tail that   has already seen excellent service on the earlier BMW F 650 GS.Whereas the front wheel is controlled by torsionally rigid telescopic   forks, the rear system takes the form of a solid dual swing arm of   square steel sections in conjunction with a monoshock linked via a   lever system. Besides the optimal riding stability up to the maximum   speed of 170 km/h (power reduction 145 km/h) the new   G 650 GS presents a thrilling performance of playful   handling on the country road. Adequate spring travel ensures a high   level of riding comfort and appealing off-road qualities despite its   low seat height.Powerful deceleration is provided by the brake system consisting of a   single brake disc at the front and rear. The BMW Motorrad ABS, available as optional factory-fitted equipment, can be deactivated for   off-road riding.

Typical enduro design and colour concept in the style of the BMW GS family.

The body of the new G 650 GS was completely redesigned. In particular   the front section makes the single-cylinder enduro light, sporty, and   dynamic. The asymmetrical headlamp and the self steering front wheel   cover give the G 650 GS its look of absolute independence.A clear design of lines, the targeted use of coloured areas and all   black plastic parts uphold the visual impression of a robust enduro   outfit. The overall impression of sportiness is boosted further by the   engine, exhaust covers, frame, swinging arm, and slide tubes, which   are all black, contrasting with the plain colours of aura white and   orange-red as well as the matching two-tone seats.The new BMW G 650 GS will be produced at the   BMW Motorrad plant in Berlin Spandau.
