The BMW G 450 X motorcycle was launched as a 2010 model year. BMW claims it was the first pure-blooded sports enduro to be produced in the popular 450cc class and to have been developed especially for enduro use, fit for taking part in the most demanding races in the world.
A new data-set has been developed for the ECU (engine control unit) of the bike’s digital engine management system. This results not only in an improvement in fuel consumption but also a reduction in engine break torque, improved start characteristics and more sensitive responses, particularly with load changes.
The chassis of the BMW G 450 X has also received a number of modifications. The offset of the front axle to the middle of the fork rod has been reduced by 2.5 millimeters, resulting in more neutral handling with optimum directional stability.
Furthermore, the BMW G 450 X upside-down fork has been recalibrate with a stronger damping progression, resulting in more sensitive response characteristics and improvements in overcoming bumps, even in very tough off-road terrain.
The calibration of the rear strut has also been modified, with the result that its damping characteristic now also displays a more progressive line, favoring more sensitive response characteristics.
The design of the new G 450 X is oriented towards the successful factory racing models of the BMW Motorrad Motorsport team, with matching, gold-anodized fork inner tubes.
