The BMW G650X was a series of motorcycles produced from 2006 to 2009. The three models were: the G650 Xchallenge, the G650 Xmoto, and the G650 Xcountry.[2] The same updated Rotax engine first seen on the BMW F650 was shared among the three models. The single-cylinder, four-stroke, 652cc engine was liquid-cooled and features DOHC. The 652cc engine produced 53 hp and 60 Nm of power and torque at 7000 and 5250 RPM respectively.[1][2] The three models shared all major components and are differentiated by their fairing and wheel sizes, therefore, the models vary in weight.
