The 2013 BMW G650GS probably isn't the most exciting bike in the world, but remains a cheap and cheerful (and all-around capable) go-anywhere machine...

BMW have revealed the 2013 G650GS, which is now available with a ‘sunset yellow’ paintjob. Mechanically, the bike remains unchanged – it’s still powered by the same 652cc liquid-cooled fuel-injected DOHC single-cylinder engine that produces 48 horsepower and 60Nm of torque. It’s also quite economical, averaging up to 32km/l at a steady 90km/h. ‘The G650GS stands out clearly from its rivals in terms of quality, equipment, and comfort,’ claim BMW.

With its 5-speed gearbox, robust steel tube chassis and suspension that’s been optimized for off-road use, the 2013 BMW G650GS remains a simple, affordable, go-anywhere machine that can still hit a top speed of up to 170km/h on the street. The bike rides on 19-inch (front) and 17-inch (rear) wheels, ABS is now standard and the 14-litre fuel tank provides adequate range for longer journeys. The bike will be available from August this year.
