An updated version of the BMW G650 Xcountry will be available in dealerships from January 2009.

The revised Xcountry features a new paint scheme and a number of subtle changes designed to make the bike more appealing to urban riders and commuters.

The new model should be more manageable in town as it boasts a lower seat height, down from 840-870mm to 800-825mm, which BMW achieved with modfications to the suspension and saddle. Both brake and clutch levers are also adjustable as standard.

The 2009 BMW G650 Xcountry is also available in a new sunset yellow and white aluminium colour paint scheme (pictured) and features integrated passenger footrests in place of the bolt-on type used on the previous model.
