2012 BMW C 650 GT

The city is waiting for you and for the first ever BMW Motorrad Maxi-Scooter. The new C 650 GT is perfect for anyone who is looking for an intelligent mobility solution combined with BMW Motorrad riding experience. C 650 GT offers excellent handling and performance. The striking design in characteristic BMW style, is a definite attention grabber. This is certainly the way to handle urban mobility. A world full of possibilities, adventures and challenges.

  • Overall concept and vehicle properties
  • The BMW C 650 GT combine the outstanding riding properties of a motorcycle with the specific agility and conceptual comfort of a scooter for a new kind of dynamic riding experience.

  • Powerful 2-cylinder inline engine with CVT and characteristic sound.
  • The 2-cylinder inline engine of the C 650 GT is an all new development by BMW Motorrad with a displacement of 647 cc. Its rated power output is 44 kW (60 hp) at 7500 rpm, and its max torque of 66 Nm is available at 6000 rpm. The power is transferred via a directly integrated CVT, or continuously variable transmission.

    The engine owes its low position and therefore low centre of gravity to its cylinder bank, which is inclined to the front through 70°. The characteristic sound and low vibration levels are the result of the 90° crank pin offset, 270° ignition spacing, and two balancer shafts driven by spur gears.

    An electronic fuel injection system supplies the four valves under the two overhead camshafts. Oil is supplied from a dry sump with double oil pump, and an efficient cooling concept optimises the thermal equilibrium in the 2-cylinder engine. The exhaust system is made completely of stainless steel and complies with motorcycle specifications. Fitted with a closed loop catalytic converter and an oxygen sensor, the C 650 GT fulfil today the Euro-4 emission limits of tomorrow.

  • Suspension with playful handling and best riding stability.
  • One objective in the development of the C 650 GT was to combine directional stability at high speeds on the motorway with playful handling in city traffic and clear feedback to the rider - just like a motorcycle.

    Accordingly, the design of the C 650 GT suspension features a torsionally rigid hybrid interconnection of a tubular steel bridge frame and a diecast aluminium unit at the swingarm bearing. In addition, the 2-cylinder inline engine functions as a stressed element, presenting a particularly rigid construction for stable and high precision response.

  • Powerful braking system with BMW Motorrad ABS fitted as standard.
  • The new C 650 GT is fitted with a generously sized braking system consisting of a two-rotor disc brake at the front and a single disc brake at the rear, each 270 mm in diameter. At the same time, the BMW Motorrad ABS fitted as standard ensures maximum possible safety.

  • Multifunctional instrument cluster and optional LED daytime running light.
  • The instrument cluster of the C 650 GT presents a large, easily readable LCD display with integrated engine speed readout and an analogue speedometer. The instrument cluster presents considerably more functions than usual in this vehicle class.

  • C 650 GT with the world premiere FlexCase.
  • The FlexCase for the C 650 GT is an innovative stowage space concept. A flap in the tail base under the seat enlarges the stowage space on the stationary vehicle. This can be used e.g. to hold two helmets.
