These days we can all appreciate getting a little something extra for our money, and bmw is playing that timely card with the introduction of an entry-level dual-sport model. The '09 GS comes equipped with BMW's new-generation partial integral ABS, heated handgrips, centerstand and all the convenience amenities (clock, digital readouts) you won't find on a bare-bones 650cc dual-sport. This one comes with the BMW rear trunk too!! The standard ABS (usually a $900 option) works brilliantly, and can be easily disengaged for off-road use. Braking power from the single front and rear discs is impressive, and it gets the job done. Suspension proved more than adequate. The G650GS is comfortable and easy to manage. The engine is a big-bore 650cc thumper, it feels good. It's got enough power to hurry you through the five gears. Those looking for a well-equipped dual-sport or a low-buck adventure bike would do well to consider it. Fully serviced and ready to ride!!!
