Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - 'Quality'

Steve Farrell, 21 April 2011 16:46

I’ve just spent my first weekend with the BMW G650GS, after taking delivery of it on Friday, and the word I want to say is: quality. You’d never guess this is one of the cheapest big bikes you can buy. The screen is as blemish-free as glass, so much so that I can attach my sat nav with a suction ...

Michael Neeves, 13 April 2011 12:17

It was one of the best racing weekends for me so far on my beloved BMW Park lane S1000RR. The weather was glorious and I managed three thirds in Powerbikes, with a best lap time of 1.33.01.

Trevore Franklin, 01 April 2011 17:41

Limited edition bikes are like truffles: you wonder what all the fuss is about, especially for the extra outlay involved in buying them. So, when BMW introduces a limited edition R1200GS, you feel justified in saying: "So what?" The standard R1200GS, with no thrills or frills, costs £10,550. The question is: would you pay an extra £435 for the same ...

And at £4920 plus on-the-road charges, it’s one of the cheapest big bikes you can buy, undercutting even Suzuki’s budget SV650 at ...
