Engine looks outwardly just like the usual Rotax offering .. wheres the gain I wonder? - pretty plastics and a name change over the 650 X range - mind you the seat looks a bit more comfortable

Fuel load is up by 5lts and still looks to be positioned behind the engine

No sump Guard - how ferking tight is BMW

From original post
"A new lighter forged piston bumps up the compression ratio (12.3:1) and much hotter camshafts acting on bigger valves help inject a little more animal into the engine."

power gains

power to help move the big heavy thing

Quote:
For example, a new mould was developed for the cylinder head so as to produce even more aerodynamically optimised ducting of the intake and outlet ducts for increased power. As part of the redesign of the cylinder head, the spark plug thread was also reworked, involving a reduction in thread diameter from 12 to 10 mm. This results in an even more effective flow of cooling fluid in the spark plug area as well as enhanced heat dissipation and therefore a more favourable engine thermal dynamics.
Increased compression, new camshafts, larger valves.
Other features which contribute to the increased engine output are a new fuel-injection system, newly-designed camshafts with longer timing, new valve lift curves and deeper valve strokes. In combination with enlarged valve head diameters in the intake and outlet valves, the optimised intake and outlet camshaft enables improved filling and a more effective charge cycle. Another contribution to the performance enhancement of the single-cylinder engine is the increase in the compression ratio from 11.5 to 12.3:1.
um no comp for the dr
i believe the dr can go over heavy terrian

In conjunction with the constant-mesh 5-speed gearbox, the powerful and high-revving single-cylinder engine in the Husqvarna TR 650 Strada puts in an especially impressive performance on country roads, while a full torque curve and spontaneous response also allow supreme off-road excursions over light terrain on the TR 650 Terra.
why couldn't they just stick the motor in 630 chassis
that would put the wind up the dr's and klr's

Was all looking good until i saw the weight. 186KG... it should be a twin with that figure.

and then the 190mm suspension travel...

NEXT.

Couldn`t agree more . That would have made it a very tempting bike . Why bother making it if they only give it 190mm travel .

190mm was the SM model specs. Maybe the DS has more?
The weight is a concern, but I must say all the cast alloy on my XCH used to worry me. Could be a good Adventure bike, and no heavier then a Tenere660 or a KLR.

Correct, however once you add the pieces that are missing like part fairings, screens, etc etc that are standard on a KLR or Tenere, then it will be a real porker!

True. Actually, looking at the photos, I don't know how they managed to get that much weight in it. My old Dominator was twin exhaust and only weighed 165. Steel frame is a good thing, but I wouldn't think it would account for 40kg increase? Maybe that's wet weight? "road ready".
