For your Direct Access course, you’ll have a choice of either the BMW G 650 GS or the F 650 GS. However, if you’re coming to do a Road Skills course, you’re welcome to ride your own bike as long as it’s fully road-legal and insured. We also have a wide range of BMW motorcycles available to hire if you want to try something different, or plan on travelling to BMW Rider Training by car, train or air.
BMW F 650 GS
798cc parallel twin – 820mm seat height – 71bhp – 199kg
The perfect all-rounder
The F 650 GS combines a confidence-inspiring low seat height and comfortable riding position. The bike is perfectly suited for cruising through the city, gliding along country roads and filtering through traffic. A lower seat (suitable for riders up to 5’4”) can be fitted or a modified bike with lowered suspension (suitable for riders under 5’2”) can be provided.
BMW G 650 GS
652cc single –780mm seat height – 53bhp – 199kg
The confident single model
New for 2011, this single-cylinder lightweight all-purpose bike is ideal for newer and less confident riders and seasoned veterans alike. The low seat height and narrow frame is a big hit with shorter riders while the punchy single cylinder engine is flexible and easy to use in all riding situations.
BMW F 800 GS
798cc parallel twin – 880mm seat height – 85bhp – 207kg
The lightweight adventure bike
The F 800 GS is a perfect blend of rugged adventure machine and lightweight city bike. The taller seat gives a confidence-inspiring viewpoint, the economical, punchy engine and large tank make for long, easy days in the saddle and the off-road potential this bike packs means you don’t always have to take the tarmac route to your destination...
BMW R 1200 R
1170cc flat twin – 800mm seat height – 110bhp – 223kg
The timeless road bike
The R 1200 R features BMW’s legendary DOHC Boxer flat-twin engine – which has a very easy-to-use spread of power and torque. The comfortable, agile R 1200 R lets you enjoy the ride without distraction. A lower seat height version (suitable for riders below 5’2”) is also available upon prior request.
BMW R 1200 GS
1170cc air/liquid cooled flat twin – 850/870mm seat height – 125bhp – 238kg
The legendary R 1200 GS.
The all-new 2013 R 1200 GS is more powerful and more fun than ever before. The biggest GS may appear intimidating, but it possesses a huge grin factor. The balanced nature and smooth, consistent power delivery make it an easy bike to ride, whatever your experience levels. On top of this, the R 1200 GS has a surprisingly low seat height so even the smaller riders out there shouldn’t rule this bike out!
