BMW debuts F 650 GS ’30 Years GS’

Motorcycle Preview

BMW Motorrad has announced the “30 Years GS” edition of the F 650 GS enduro motorcycle. The F650GS is aimed at riders who do not need the power of the F 800 GS, but still prefer the parallel-twin engine configuration (the G 650 GS has a single cylinder motor).

The strengths of this machine are its lower seat height (compared to the 800), easy riding characteristics, and excellent suitability for everyday use.

The F 650 GS “30 Years GS” comes in exclusive Alpine White non-metallic paintwork with three-colored decals in the unique livery of BMW Motorrad Motorsport and its special model designation, in this case on the rear section, together with stainless-steel hand guards and a black plastic protector, as well as a color-matched engine protection cover.

Magnesium-colored cast wheels, the red seat with its three-dimensional “GS” stamp at the front of the seat surface, as well as white direction indicators give this special edition of the F 650 GS a particularly exclusive note.

The F 650 GS “30 Years GS” special model may also be upgraded individually through the addition of special equipment and optional extras from BMW Motorrad.

The lower seat, available as both special equipment and as an optional extra, comes exclusively in black also on this model.

Highlights of the BMW F 650 GS “30 Years GS”:

> Paintwork in Alpine White non-metallic.

> Three-colored decals in the livery of BMW Motorrad Motorsport.

> “30 Years GS” model designation at the rear.

> Magnesium-colored cast wheels.

> Hand protectors with a stainless steel and plastic construction.

> Engine protector made of special plastic.

> White direction indicators.

> Red seat with three-dimensional “GS” stamp at the front of the seat surface.

“Launching the “30 Years GS” special versions of the BMW R 1200 GS, the R 1200 GS Adventure, the F 800 GS, and the F 650 GS, BMW Motorrad is paying its tribute to the outstanding success of the GS models both in the production of series machines and in motorsport.”

“Indeed, it was also motorsport that provided the input for the attractive design of the Edition Models in the livery of BMW Motorrad Motorsport thirty years ago.” — BMW
