Naturally its outstanding ride characteristics not only make it excel here but also in everyday riding on country roads or in city traffic.

No wonder - with these technical features: The engine generates 50 hp at 6500 rpm and a maximum torque of 44 lb/ft at 5000 rpm. Fuel consumption is sensationally low at 74 mpg at a constant 55 mph and thanks to its extremely low weight of 423 lbs with full tank the bike handles easily in every situation.

The G 650 GS Sertão is a thrilling bike to look at, too. The exclusive color design is classic in Aura white/Arroy blue while remaining modern at the same time. The luggage carrier is in black and the seat in black/grey.

Enduro fans will also enjoy the wide range of equipment. Thanks to standard ABS the braking performance of the G 650 GS Sertão reaches a new level on wet asphalt. Apart from riding safety, a high level of comfort is ensured by the optional heated grips and the power socket which ensures untroubled travel feeling on long distance rides. The equipment features are rounded off by the original BMW Motorrad alarm system.

All this makes the G 650 GS Sertão a versatile Enduro which calls out for adventure, like the exciting desert of Brazil after which it was named. Let yourself in for adventure!
