Equipment

South America motorcycle tours

F700 GS

The BMW F 700 GS, with a 73.76 horsepower parallel twin engine is our bike of choice for South America. With its low weight and low seat height of only 820mm the 700 is a great motorcycle to tour the continent on and even the most experienced rider will appreciate its easy riding characteristics. Fuel injection is a necessity as we take the bikes up over 5000m on some of our expeditions and the twin engine gives us the extra power and reliability that we need. We also have several low seats that can be fitted onto any of our 700s reducing the height to approximately 790mm. We also have one factory lowered suspension model with a seat height of 765 mm.

F650GS

F 800 GS

With an 800cc, 83HP twin cylinder engine and a weight of just 207kgs, the F800GS is designed for toughness and agility, combining riding comfort and superb handling characteristics. The overall package combines balanced power and weight, superb ground clearance, long spring travel & precise wheel guidance giving excellent off-road riding and long-distance performance. Seat height is 880mm and the bike comes with, ASC, ABS, ESA & heated grips.

R 1200 GS

Described as the world’s greatest all-rounder, combining an unrivalled balance of on-road agility, off-road ability and touring comfort, the new liquid-cooled ‘GS’ remains unrivalled in its class. It has a twin overhead cam version of their legendary 1200cc boxer engine producing 125HP that offers supreme power and performance. This bike is the complete package for the long distance tourer and is equally at home on or off the dirt. Bikes come with ABS, ESA, and heated grips as standard.

Australia motorcycle tours and rentals

Suzuki DR 650

This bullet proof motorcycle is built for the off road and with its single cylinder counterbalanced motor developing 46HP is now an ideal bike for those long outback rides. Long suspension travel and light weight make this bike a great low cost choice for our rental fleet in Australia.

2011-Suzuki-DR650SEc

The latest all-powerful R1200GS offers superb protection from the wind for long distance riding, electronic suspension and electronic engine power delivery options, cruise control and a light feel. The perfect bike for long Australian journeys.

G 650 Sertao

The new BMW Sertao is the new Dakar, a single cylinder 652cc motor that has retained the same chassis, brakes and instrumentation as the legendary Dakar. Greater suspension and spoked rims have made this a more off road capable bike while still being a more than capable on road bike with gear ratios suited to the pavement. A counterbalance in the engine is used to great effect to offset the usual vibration associated with single “thumpers”. This bike is ideally suited to the rigours of riding in the Australian “outback”.
