The BMW F650 is a family of motorcycles that was produced by BMW Motorrad beginning in 1993. Models include the F650ST Strada, F650 Funduro, F650CS Scarver, F650GS, and F650GS Dakar. The 1993 F650 Funduro and Strada were the first single-cylinder motorcycles from BMW since the 1960–1966 R27, and the first chain driven motorcycles from BMW
First seen in early 2000, the F650GS is an update of the F650 Funduro. Like the Funduro, it has a dual sport-road/off-road design, with a new steel-tube frame and revised engine. A new engine management system reduces pollution and improves smoothness. The bodywork is also new, and incorporates an underseat fuel tank, lowering the centre of gravity. Long-travel suspension soaks up the worst of road bumps and allows a degree of off-road use, while a tough bashplate protects the bottom of the engine. The single disc brakes front and rear are Brembo units, and there is an optional ABS anti-lock system. There is a centrestand and clock, while the twin underseat silencers are stainless steel for long life.
No motorcycle can do everything, but the BMW F 650 GS come close. Based on the fundamentally flexible “enduro” concept, the F 650 line has been carefully developed to meet a broad range of requirements, to enable cross-country travel in comfort as well as jaunts across town with consummate ease.
