BMW F650 GS Dakar
Produced from 2000 to 2007, the BMW F650GS is a dual-purpose motorcycle. The Dakar model had a thinner, 21 inch front wheel (as opposed to the street oriented 17 or 18 inch) and longer suspension travel for improved off-road handling.
The F650GS had several advanced technology features for its time, with computer-controlled fuel injection, catalytic converter, a Nikasil-lined cylinder, optional ABS and an airbox designed to exploit the airflow pattern of the bike when in motion. Combined with the bike’s high compression ratio and twin spark plugs (from 2004 onwards), excellent fuel economy and low emissions existed alongside high power output.
