BMW presents the new G 650 GS Sertão, a sporty single cylinder enduro suitable for both off-road and everyday use. The new model features an even more sporty look than the standard G 650 GS, and it is designed to be more off-road effective than the model it derives from. The Sertão is aimed at a more adventurous custom base that looks out for exciting riding experiences but still doesn’t want to give up on technical features and comfort of a regular road bike.
The G 650 GS Sertão will be equipped with the same liquid-cooled single cylinder engine whose outstanding torque curve has made the standard G650GS a success. This 652cc double overhead camshafts engine boasts an output of 48hp at 6500rpm and delivers its maximum torque of 60Nm at 5000rpm. Obviously, just like the standard model, it features electronic fuel injection and twin spark ignition as well. A reduced power version will also be available, delivering 25 kW (34 hp) at 6500 rpm and 47 Nm at 4500 rpm.
G 650 GS chassis’ design was developed for riding mainly on country roads while the Sertão is definitely more off-road oriented, thanks to longer travel suspension and stiffer settings. Besides, it uses spoked wheels that are more suitable for that kind of surface. The blue/white color scheme with big ‘Sertão’ lettering on the tank makes a good match with the black/gray saddle, adding up to the aggressive character of the bike.
