2015 BMW G650GS on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

With the G 650 GS you will simply have fun…

Why not? That’s the motto of the G 650 GS. Whether in town or on the gravel track: with this machine you have every terrain under control, and you get more than your money’s worth when it comes to riding fun, too.

The G 650 GS continues the success story of BMW Motorrad’s single cylinder engines in impressive fashion – with a solid output of 48 bhp (35 kW) at 6500 rpm and a maximum torque of 60 Nm at 5000 rpm. The bike offers absolutely sensational fuel consumption levels: 3.2 litres of regular petrol to 100 km*.

2015 BMW G650GS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

The ride feel on the G 650 GS is thrilling, too – wherever you’re going. Whether on the road or over rough terrain – the reliable, tried-and-tested chassis with central spring strut on the swinging fork ensures crisp handling. Membership of the enduro family is highlighted in this machine with the upright seating position and an impressive 170 mm of spring travel at the front with 165 mm at the rear. The moderate standard seat height of 780 mm and the lowered suspension option make this experience accessible to virtually anyone.

 

 

2015 BMW G650GS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

The G 650 GS is robust, powerful and yet still extremely light, weighing just 192 kg (with a full tank). With its low fuel consumption and simple handling, it is not just ideal for beginner motorcyclists. Its slim, athletic stature in a youthful and typically enduro-style design stands for uncomplicated riding pleasure and pure fun.

The optionally available equipment features of the BMW enduro include comfortable hand protectors, aluminium sump guard, a high windshield and practical Vario cases.

The options make the machine a touch safer still: a centre stand makes for improved stability, the heated grips provide a more solid grasp and ABS prevents the wheels from locking.
