Thumpercrazze's link was dead but perhaps the one below will work?

Well I was wrong ... or perhaps someone at BMW was fibbing a bit.
This bike is nearly identical to the "old" F650GS single. And get this: the claimed dry weight is an astounding 387 lbs. My guess is the true dry weight will be over 400 lb.s with the wet weight going up to perhaps 440 lbs. or thereabouts. Too heavy for a single IMO.

The initial reports I'd heard from BMW said ALL NEW G650. Oh well.

The bike is built at Kymco, Rotax copy motor, frame built in Berlin.
Lets hope they didn't source the electrics to India
