2013 BMW G650GS Sertao Review

2013 BMW G650GS Sertao

Power, robustness and agility combined with maximum control. This is what the G 650 GS Serṭo stands for Рa machine designed to master even the most adventurous forays into off-road terrain. Naturally its outstanding ride characteristics not only make it excel here but also in everyday riding on country roads or in city traffic.

No wonder – with these technical features: The engine generates 50 hp at 6500 rpm and a maximum torque of 44 lb/ft at 5000 rpm. Fuel consumption is sensationally low at 74 mpg at a constant 55 mph and thanks to its extremely low weight of 423 lbs with full tank the bike handles easily in every situation.

The G 650 GS Sertão is a thrilling bike to look at, too. The exclusive color design is classic in Aura white/Arroy blue while remaining modern at the same time. The luggage carrier is in black and the seat in black/grey.

Enduro fans will also enjoy the wide range of equipment. Thanks to standard ABS the braking performance of the G 650 GS Sertão reaches a new level on wet asphalt. Apart from riding safety, a high level of comfort is ensured by the optional heated grips and the power socket which ensures untroubled travel feeling on long distance rides. The equipment features are rounded off by the original BMW Motorrad alarm system.

All this makes the G 650 GS Sertão a versatile Enduro which calls out for adventure, like the exciting desert of Brazil after which it was named. Let yourself in for adventure!

The unstoppable G 650 GS has been transformed from a fantastic on-road to an extreme off-road motorcycle. With a brand new paint work and an outstanding range of features as standard, the immense Sertao edition puts the G 650 GS in a new light.

The special edition model comes with a larger front wheel to soak up the pot holes and difficult terrain, a high windshield, aluminium engine guard and hand protectors for enhanced rider and motorcycle protection and spoked wheels front and rear to cope with the difficult terrain. With all these standard features combined with the extreme agility, smoothness and economy of the standard G 650 GS, the superb Sertao is the perfect contender for your next bike.
