2012 BMW G650GS Sertao Review
The sporty BMW single cylinder enduro for offroad and everyday.
With its new BMW G 650 GS Sertão, BMW Motorrad has added a new, sporting chapter to the history of single cylinders in the BMW GS family. Chassis for greater offroad practicality, optimised touring properties, and dynamic design.
2012 BMW G650GS Sertao Model Highlights

•High-torque and low-consumption single cylinder engine with 652 cc displacement. Output reduction to 25 kW (34 hp) available.
•Offroad chassis concept with long spring travels (front/rear 210 mm).

•Two seat heights: 860 mm (standard) and 900 mm (special accessory).
