2001 BMW F650GS Dakar

The BMW F650 is a family of motorcycles developed by BMW Motorrad beginning in 1993. Newer models (post-2000) included the F650CS Scarver, F650GS, and F650GS Dakar. Produced from 2000 to 2007, the BMW F650GS is a dual-purpose motorcycle. A specially prepared rally raid version of the bike was used by Charley Boorman and his team during the 2006 Dakar Rally while filming their documentary Race to Dakar.

The original F650 single-engine was manufactured for BMW by Austrian company Rotax. Amongst the changes from the original F650, the engine was upgraded to a 43 mm throttle body. The fuel is stored in an under seat fuel tank, and the false tank (where a conventional fuel tank would be) housed the remote oil reservoir (for the dry sump), airbox and battery. This contributed to a lower centre of gravity for improved handling. The bodywork was redesigned by head BMW designer David Robb.

This Dakar has recently been serviced and has a new chain and brake pads.
