See a Road. Eat a Road.

The most versatile member of BMW Motorrad’s fresh new G series line up, the G 650 Xcountry is the classic scrambler concept topped off with a few modern features unique to BMW, like a zippy 53 hp single cylinder engine, and a high performance lightweight design. With a round head lamp, round side panels and black, anodized wheels, the look of the Xcountry is edgy and totally striking. Add Marzocchi telescopic forks and Magura aluminum handlebars and you can attack any road you want, from dusty gravel tracks to asphalt sweepers. On-road or off-road, the Xcountry is one scrambler that’s will have your heart revving as fast as your tachometer.
