BMW 650 Sertao US$145 per day

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”.


BMW F 650 GS US$ 155 per day

The BMW F 650 GS, with a 71 horsepower parallel twin engine is our bike of choice for South America. With its low weight and low seat height of only 820mm the 650 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 one factory lowered F 650 with the seat height of only 765mm and we also have a low seat that can be fitted onto any of our 650s reducing the height to approximately 800mm


BMW F800 GS US$185 per day

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.
