2012 BMW F 650 GS

Welcome to one of the most state-of-the-art 2-cylinder machines, with 71 hp and full torque across the entire engine speed range. With a torsionally stiff space frame which not only looks good but also allows plenty of space for the many extra highlights such as the large airbox and the fuel tank under the seat.

The cast aluminum wheels with moderate dimensions are ideal both for city cruising and for covering lengthy straights at speed. State-of-the-art ABS is of course available as an optional extra. And with bright, elegant colors you will be an eye-catcher at every break – weather on the mountain pass or in front of the ice cream parlor.

  • It gets you everywhere - simply unstoppable! How about a quick ride?
  • Gravel? Tarmac? Cobblestones? Sand? The BMW F650GS is a match for any surface. This is the definitive multi-talented motorcycle. Whether it’s tiny alleyways in town, sweeping bends on country roads or adventurous wild terrain, the light handling is a winner with novices and pros alike.

    The F 650 GS is a bike which can perform in any situation. With a water-cooled 798cc parallel twin-cylinder engine, and an impressive 71hp, this sturdy motorcycle will never let you down. BMW Motorrad also offers a reduced power version (34hp/25kw) which is perfect for beginners, and is our 'bike of choice' at our very own BMW Rider Training school.

  • The 2012 BMW F 650 GS. The most unstoppable Enduro in its class.
  • The new BMW F 650 GS offers all the power you need, on tap whenever you need it. Its state-of-the-art 798-cc twin-cylinder engine delivers 71 horsepower (52 kW). And that in a bike that weighs just 199 kilograms*. Because the key to performance is not making things harder for yourself than they have to be.
