Assuming you mean the G650GS, it's been in showrooms for nearly two months now.
And I'm with WoodWorks, can everybody please get it right from now on? The G450X motor is built in Taiwan, the G650GS motor is ASSEMBLED in China.
"F" motors are all Rotax, all Austrian.
I haven't seen these "new" G650GS singles in California yet. And it's hard to get it right ... even BMW dealers screw this up. So give me a break on this shit, it's all in flux and you're gonna see a lot of changes in coming years.

According to the review the "new" G650 single is totally built in China, at the Kymco factory, using "Rotax blueprints". So, NOT just
assembled, but built ... according the review linked above.

As far as ALL "F" designated bikes having Rotax motors? Well bubba, any bets that all changes in the next few years?
