Comparison: 2012 Triumph Tiger Explorer vs. 2012 Yamaha Super Ténéré

2012 BMW G 650 GS Sertão Road Test

The 2012 G 650 GS Sertão continues BMW’s lineage of adventure-oriented singles that goes back to the 1993 F 650 Funduro.

Sertão is Portuguese for hinterlands or back country, particularly the arid badlands of northeastern Brazil, the sort of place the new offroad-ready G 650 GS Sertão is designed to explore. From 2000-2010, the rock-hopping variant of BMW’s F 650 GS was called the Dakar, after the legendary rally that... Read more »
