Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - Who needs the badge?

In a recent update I highlighted the disappointingly early beginnings of corrosion on my G650GS's frame, a development that has left me dreading winter. Now I’ve got a BMW cover, which should help. It's lovely, as BMW accessories tend to be, with a number plate window and integral storage bag. But I got a shock when I saw the price. ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - Corrosion sets in

I really like my G650GS. So I’m massively disappointed to report that the paintwork doesn’t seem to be up to much. Corrosion is already beginning to appear in places and it’s not yet had to endure a single winter. A BMW spokesman said: ‘Obviously I can’t really comment on the cause of the corrosion until the bike has been inspected. ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - When different isn’t better

In my last update on the G650GS I’m riding this year, I mentioned how BMWs are different to other bikes in the detail. I said they were not always better but never without effort. Well, here’s an example : The indicator switch. The G650GS does not feature BMW’s famously different three-switch arrangement, with a button on each bar to activate ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - 'Quality'

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 ...

Why new bikes aren’t as heavy as you think

The specifications of some small-to-middle-weight new bikes have caused disquiet on the forums of MCN this year. One user wrote of the new Honda CBR250R, which weighs 162kg and makes a claimed 26bhp: “I can't believe how heavy these things are. Modern four-cylinder 600s are down to this sort of weight.” Another user said both the CBR250R and the 169kg ...

BMW G650GS (2011-current)

The GS650GS is BMW’s entry-level adventure bike and successor to the old G650 and F650GS single. Because it’s essentially a tweaked version of those, development costs have been low, making it not just the cheapest BMW you can buy but one of the cheapest big bikes. It’s competent on trails, but with a low seat height and exactly 47bhp on ...

Video: BMW G650GS is a lot of bike for £5000

MCN’s world-first ride on the new BMW G650GS has shown it’s competent on and off road and novice-friendly too. The BMW has 47bhp, which from 2013 will be the new power limit for novice riders, up from 33bhp. 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 ...
