2007 BMW G650X Challenge

The right stuff for the tight stuff.

Got dirt in your blood? Dreaming of whoops, ruts, sand washes and gnarly singletrack? Want an off-road bike that can slalom around trees roots, and rocks without getting hung up? Then the rippin’ new G 650 Xchallenge is your ride. Boasting a 53 bhp single cylinder engine with plenty of pulling power, this is an enduro that’s lightweight in terms of heft, but certainly not in its ability. With the same air damping rear suspension as the HP2 Enduro you’ll thrash over just about anything, even the tightest trails on that dual sport ride out in the woods. Front mudguards, an asymmetric headlight, a cast aluminum rear swing arm, and a lightweight wave design front brake disc complete the package. The new G 650 Xchallenge – a single cylinder enduro that can’t wait to tear it up.

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.
