With the new 2011 BMW G 650 GS, BMW Motorrad has added yet another motorcycle to its BMW GS family. With its lean, wiry off-road stature, the new single-cylinder enduro cuts a cheeky, light, and adventurous figure.
This liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine with double overhead camshafts has a displacement of 652 cc, delivers 35 kW (48 hp) at 6500 rpm, and develops a maximum torque of 60 Nm at 5000 rpm. As an optional accessory, the motorcycle is also available in a power reduction version, delivering 25 kW (34 hp) at 6500 rpm and 47 Nm at 4500 rpm.
Thanks to electronic fuel injection, twin-spark ignition, the high geometrical compression ratio of 11.5:1, and a closed-loop catalytic converter, this tried and tested single-cylinder engine is designed for the maximum level of riding pleasure with the best possible efficiency and lower environmental impact.
In conjunction with the claw-shifted five-speed gearbox, the free revving single-cylinder engine in the new BMW G 650 GS provides for a thrilling experience.
The suspension of the new GS 650 was developed primarily for running on country roads and takes the form of an agile chassis with a bridge frame of steel tubing and a bolt-on framework tail that has already seen excellent service on the earlier BMW F 650 GS.
The body of the new G 650 GS was completely redesigned. In particular the front section makes the single-cylinder enduro light, sporty, and dynamic. The asymmetrical headlamp and the self steering front wheel cover give this motorcycle the BMW look.
