BMW 650 GS (Single Cylinder)

BMW 650 GS (Single Cylinder)

Being the one of the lightest of the rental options sure does have its advantages.  If your plans are to seek out every spot of dirt possible, yet still be comfortable on the open road, the single-cylinder version of BMW’s GS models is an excellent choice.  Also an excellent choice for riders who prefer or need a low seat height.

BMW R1200GS - Liquid Cooled

BMW R1200GS - Liquid Cooled

Revised back in 2013, BMW it seems has done it once again in the world of adventure motorcycles. The new liquid-cooled version of the famous R1200GS comes with a more "upright" stance and off-road friendly positioning.  Now with a wet clutch, a higher air intake perfect for river crossings, and a 10% horsepower increase over the previous model, BMW has clearly made improvements on what was already a great adventure bike.

BMW R1200GS Adventure

Whereas the standard R1200GS was plenty of motorcycle, the Adventure model is just a little bit more.  More fuel capacity, more wind protection, more suspension travel, more carrying capacity, and more crash protection. For the serious expedition rider:  More motorcycle might be what you need!

FAQS

Where can I pickup a motorcycle rental in South Africa?

At this time, our motorcycle rentals in South Africa are based in Cape Town, for which we use Cape Town International Airport (CPT.) Other locations in South Africa like Johannesburg and the rest of the region (including Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe) are possible pickup locations, but could include extra charges.

Where can I travel to on these motorcycle rentals?

The answer to this question depends on a few factors, like our motorcycle fleet availabitlity and the rest of the schedule. Special paperwork and authorizations need to be issued in order for you to cross borders with these bikes, so please inquire further about your options.

What is the best time of year for riding in Africa?

Much like anywhere in the world, seasonal weather patterns should be a consideration for your travels. For example, where we first started operating in Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, and South Africa, the optimal riding months are about September through April, with January and February representing the "middle of summer" and therefore the best (warmest/driest) weather. Other regions may have different timing, so please inquire with us further about where and when you'd like to make your trip.

What is the riding terrain like for Africa?

Such a huge continent full of so many great riding and exploration opportunities means virtually every type of riding surface is possible in Africa. Fully-paved routes, or itineraries with mixed sand, gravel, dirt, and other terrains for dual sport riders exist as well, and each of the route packages listed on our site will have a brief description of what you can expect on that trip. Remember: It's ultimately your responsibility to inquire with our Representative about what types of terrains you'll come across when discussing route options, and that Riders should never make their first attempt at riding off-pavement part of an international expedition! Make sure you're comfortable with such terrains at home, first.
