It is more than 15 years old, but they still do not make a better motorcycle than this. If you like trail rides and BDR's than this is the perfect motorcycle for you. They only weigh 317 lbs. It has a 650cc rotax motor which is bulletproof. Has a manufacturer oil change interval of 3000 miles. Pretty much all the newer bikes have poor oil change intervals 500-1000 miles.

Has a Hyperpro rear adjustable shock. Bike has been lowered 1.5 inches and the seat is a seat customs low seat. The seat concepts low seat is a life saver for comfort on long rides. The x challenge stock seats are very uncomfortable. Stock seat height is 36 inches. I'm 5'10 and the seat height is still a little high for my liking. Has a Touratech rally fairing and comes with a garmin 600 that is mounted into the dash. The clutch cover's that came with these bike's from the factory had a factory defect, but the mod for this has been done and it was fixed with bmw parts, $500 fix. Don't buy an X that hasn't had this mod done.

Has KTM style axle bolts that are better for off road than the stock bolts. The rear brake has a security cable. Comes with Acerbis aluminum handlebar lever guards. Has a steel F650gs clutch lever mounted, the original aluminum clutch lever is also included. It aluminum bmw clutch lever is inside the tool tube. The other great thing about this model, was it was before manufacturers started loading up motorcycles with a bunch of useless heavyweight electronic features like traction control, etc. The Husqvarna 701 is an interesting bike, but is loaded up with dumb electronic features where you are going to have to take it to the dealer every other year to get something fixed because you can not work on it yourself.

I'm an airline pilot and this bike has been excellently maintained. It has been babied and is a bit of garage queen. If you like to do multi state trips than this is the perfect model of motorcycle for you. Cruise comfortably all the way there at 80 mph and it handles the offroad similar to a dirtbike. Best of both worlds. I'm only selling because I'm moving to Canada. The g650 x challenge is a more rare model of bmw motorcycle. It came out during the Great Recession and did not sell very well. BMW no longer supports the g650x but luckily the g650x has a twin sister motorcycle the Husqvarna Terra 650 and most of the replacement parts from this motorcycle will fit the BMW X Challenge

Please note that the Touratech rally fairing is a very expensive upgrade. The previous owner who was an engineer installed the rally fairing and he did an excellent job. From the second picture you can see the beefy aluminum support structure of the rally fairing. If you were to hit a deer while riding it would rip the deer in half. The rally fairing has very bright HID headlights mounted. They work great at night for lighting up the road.

All of the plastic body panels are in great condition for the age of the motorcycle. The left and right body panels are good quality. The previous owner's paint job on those black body panels was not the greatest paint job. There are some light scratches and blemishes on those panels but nothing major. The rally fairing is in excellent condition. If you look between the headlights where the mounting screw is for the fairing, you can see a little bit of cracking. That is pretty normal for these rally fairings.

Has a clear title, it has never been in an accident.
