A New Entry Into The Mid-Displacement Scooter Market

BMW Motorrad turned us on to its newest mid-size scooter, the C 400 X, at the EICMA last week, and now it’s time to take a deeper look. Beemer blesses it with a 34-pony thumper that drives it up to 86 mph and turns in a 0-60 mph time of 9.5 seconds; not bad at all for a genre made up mainly of rides more appropriate for putting around campus or retirement communities. Scooters can be sources of good, economical transportation, and quite a bit of fun to boot. While for some people frightening themselves can also be a source of entertainment, the process of trying to compete with urban-artery and highway speeds can be downright terrifying on the majority of the scooters around the world. For that reason, the C 400 X looks to be a good fit for the American commuter since it seems like it can hold its own with the traffic and speeds we deal with over here.

BMW Motorrad has just revealed the new G 650 GS, a new single-cylinder enduro that adds a cheeky, light, and adventurous figure. The G650 GS is powered by a 652 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine with a double overhead camshafts engine that develops 48 HP at 6500 rpm and 60 Nm at 5000 rpm. BMW is also offering a detuned version that develops only 34 HP at 6500 rpm and 47 Nm at 4500 rpm.

The body of the new G 650 GS was completely redesigned. The front section, in particular, makes the single-cylinder enduro light, sporty, and dynamic. The asymmetrical headlamp and the self steering front wheel cover give the G 650 GS its look of absolute independence.

A clear design of lines, the targeted use of colored areas and all black plastic parts uphold the visual impression of a robust enduro outfit. The overall impression of sportiness is boosted further by the engine, exhaust covers, frame, swinging arm, and slide tubes, which are all black, contrasting with the plain colors of aura white and orange-red as well as the matching two-tone seats.
