BMW-F650GS

BMW Motorrad, the two wheeler wing of premium carmaker BMW, today launched the F650GS in India. The off roader bike has a 798cc parallel twin engine that gives out a peak power output of 71 hp along with 75Nm of peak torque. The F650 GS weighs at a rather heavy 200kg, but the healthy power, by Indian standards should make it one of the faster machines on two wheels here.

With its impeccable off-road credentials, the F650 appears to be a great option for serious tourers who have some vitamin M to spare. The only trouble is the high 820mm of seat height which wouldn’t be very suitable for those with a short stature. The F650GS will come equipped with 17 inch wheels up front and 19 inchers at the rear, both alloys. Hardcore off-roaders may cry foul over the missing spoke wheels but for most others, the alloys would be more than enough to tackle any adversity thrown at them. The bike will have great tractability, easy riding position and a smooth, comfortable ride quality as its USPs. The bike will also be equipped with ABS to handle emergency situations more adeptly.

The bike has been introduced with a price tag of INR 9.99 lakhs.
