How many BMW G 650 XChallenges in SA?
« on: May 15, 2020, 05:21:43 pm »
Hi all - if this needs to go to model specific under Technical it can be moved

I'd like to try and figure out how many X's are left in SA, and also how many were originally brought in.
I know only 3899 were ever manufactured, of which 139 were kept by the manufacturer for testing and maybe disassembled again.

So, pls let me know if you own one, or if you know of anyone who has one.
