    I called into the BMW Dealer here in Chiang Mai today and They had the New GX650 MOTO on Display, Great Looking Bike, Great Price as well 650.000 Baht !!! I expected them to be a bit cheaper or the same as the GS650 with current Exchange Rates but T.I.T. The Guy claims they are 65HP which is Pretty Good, and Only 4 in Thailand. It looks 100% better in the Flesh than the photos i have seen in the Magazines. No doubt it will be at the Chiang Mai Motor Show and the Bangkok Motorshow.
    The Xchallenge is the one i want to see (Enduro Version) which should be here within the Next 2 months they say. I will keep you posted.
    Cheers Ian.

    Just received the 'blurb' from BMW in today's mail, (presume other BMW owners did as well.

    It says the G650X model series will be on display at the Bangkok Motor Show.

    Also they have 4 R1200GS HP2 Enduro's on Special Offer (does that mean they didn't sell)

    basicly can t do much on this kind of bike ...
    Today i was riding with a friend of mine on the samoeng loop ,he got a KTM 640 super moto ,so basicly the same power ...
    He was complaining a lot about lack of power......
    The samoeng loop should be the place you should enjoy this kind of bike
    ,so to be disappointed in that kind of area ,where it should be excellent ,is a sign.....
    I think a gs 650 is more interesting ,it can do everything or most of .....
    I think honestly that the Ducati Hypermotard will be 10 times better than this GX.

    Hi All,
    Sorry for the Misinformation!!! Shows that none of the Sales People here actually Know what they are selling. John,One HP2 has been in the Showroom here since Last year. Guy said only Farang can Ride it as to Big for Thai's??? I think the Problem is the GS1200 is cheaper and more practical. For the Xchallenge i think get a New XR650R and leave the Extra 200.000 Baht in the Bank? Be interesting to see what's at the Motor Show.
    Cheers Ian.

    Ian, when I was in the BMW Showroom up there in CNX, the salesman said the HP2 on display in the showroom has already been sold, so wonder why its still sitting there, that was in early Jan
