BMW F 650 ST 1997


Ousted by the F 650 GS, the F 650 remains a friendly urban mono to use. Its engine, manufactured by Rotax, is a close cousin to that of the Aprilia Pegaso, but here equipped with a 4-valve cylinder head (5 on the Italian). The ST differs from the GS by more road equipment: 18 “front wheel instead of 19, rear suspension with reduced travel, retouched fairing and barely modified dashboard. Comfort is present, the seat soft but the shock absorber shows a certain hardness. Damaging on degraded roads. Protection is just right at high speed; high bubble recommended if you want to cut the road. The F does not only rely on its prestigious manufacturer to please – the machine is easy to handle, is efficient, manoeuvrable and pleasant on a daily basis..
