The range of (over)reactions the G450X inspires is quite astounding. Who gives a shit?


Even though I found the article quite entertaining, the bike is probably not as bad as it was made out to be.
Bad marketing like the aforementioned, can only have an adverse effect on sales which leads to the undervaluation of the G450x.

So stop bitching and be thankful that you and your buddies can now pick the G450X up on the cheap.   :biggrin: :thumleft:

I bought it because of the badge - no question there - i ride with, and am a member of, the BMW club, so it helps to stay with the 'Marque' , but I did quickly remove nearly every trace of BMW branding  ;D


Jirre Chris , you must be the ultimate BMW poser  :biggrin: :biggrin:
that's me!
Seriously, I got quite a 'kick' out of fitting a set of Fastway footpegs - the SAME set - to my 4th bike, (dakkie, then 800, then 1150, now 450), so there are SOME advantages of 'staying BMW!

But whilst I really like the KTM 530 and KTM 690 (Adventurized), the G450X was an experiment, and a financial decision, too  ;D

yesterday, my G450X side-stand bolt broke, so I went off to Donfords Motorrad to get a new one (R30), and today they will drill out the remaining bolt, and I'll refit the new bolt.

Whilst there, i saw a near-immaculate G450X, white with every sticker removed, never off road as far as I could see, no bashplate, really lovely near-new condition, R35K negotiable, with 1645km on the clock!

I did not take a picture, but it is a beautiful bike, was traded in on an 800 GS, and......... they were fitting a new side-stand bolt to THAT bike, too!

Cheers

Eastern Pretoria, just R32K, allegedly in very good condition...
Roadworthy, too...

As usual, no affiliation...
Maybe a 'cheeky' offer of R28K....
Then if it IS in v. Good condition, that could be a good buy!

no affiliation, but Donford Motorrad Cape Town have just marked this bike down, from a speculative "R49K', to a realistic R40k, and today down to R35k...

very good value given the very low hours/mileage, etc.
