Xchallenge Struts its Stuff

For those eager to see just what BMW's new G650 Xchallenge can do, the German marque has released a tantalizing taster of what's to come in the form of a short promotional video clip.

The Xchallenge is the most off-road oriented of the new G series, which will be released in Europe in a couple of months and also comprises the G650 Xcountry and the G650 Xmoto.

At this stage it's only the Xchallenge that has been slated to grace Aussie shores, but by the looks of the video teaser it should be a hoot to ride. The promo features the bike setting a sharp pace through a variety of off-road terrain, including handling a couple of jumps in a style with which you wouldn't immediately associate the BMW badge.

The Xchallenge has borrowed some of the technology of BMW's exclusive HP2 off-roader, such as its rear air damper, and comes with knobby tyres, an alloy bash plate and a wave-type front brake disc.

Pricing and an exact Australian release date are yet to be confirmed, but in the meantime you can whet your appetite with the video, found at:
