2008 BMW F650GS

THE NEW BMW F 650 GS
is one of a kind. This UNSTOPPABLE machine offers unlimited freedom to the rider. It is equally serene on tarmac and rough terrain alike – so now the only restriction on your touring is how homesick you get. Featuring a powerful engine, and a strikingly stylish design. The new BMW F 650 GS – because everyone needs something to rely on.

Gravel? Tarmac? Cobblestones? Sand? The BMW F650GS is a match for any surface. This is the definitive multi-talented bike. Whether it's tiny alleyways in town, sweeping bends on country roads or adventurous wild terrain, the light handling is a winner with novices and pros alike.

The new BMW F 650 GS – the most unstoppable enduro in its class. Dynamic and sporty, it is built around a punchy twin-cylinder engine that delivers an impressive 71 horsepower. Light weight and a comfortable low seat ensure outstanding agility, while ABS and Tyre Pressure Control maximize safety. AND it is as at home in the big city as in the big wide world beyond. The new F 650 GS. 100 per cent BMW. 100 per cent unstoppable.
