2008 BMW G650 Xchallenge

Sporty. Exciting. Consistent. To this single-cylinder bike by BMW Motorrad, asphalt is almost an insult: 270 mm of spring travel, a genuine 53 horsepower, a superb frame, contemporary geometry specs and nothing to get in the way of a ride through the mud.

The new hard enduro of the new G 650 X series from BMW Motorrad is exactly what off-road fans are looking for. High quality, generously robust suspension components surround an excellent one cylinder high-performance engine. With its reliability, power, low fuel consumption and low emissions thanks to its EU-3 catalytic converter and state-of the art engine management, the Xmoto has what it takes to outclass the larger bikes as well – both on tarmac as well as on loose ground. The suspension provides optimal control thanks to the unique BMW Motorrad Air Damping System. With this racy enduro, you’re sure to be out in front whenever the going gets tough.
