Motorcycle insurance bargains: BMW G650

Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the great little BMW G650.       

Insurance group: 9
Engine: 652cc 4v single, 5 gears
Power: 52bhp
Top speed: 105mph
Weight: 144kg        

The BMW G650 is a practical little city bike, a capable green-laner or a fun supermoto, depending on which version you go for. Plus it's only group 9 to insure.

The G650 comes in three versions: a road/enduro motorcycle called the BMW G650 XChallenge, a supermoto motorcycle called the XMoto and a dual-purpose soft trailie motorcycle named the XCountry - £4,895). All share the same frame and engine, but ride and look different.

The difference is in the details - the XChallenge gets an air-shock for better off-road ability, the XMoto has better brakes and stiffer suspension for B-road blasting and the XCountry has an adjustable seat-height for shorties and a comfy saddle.
