It's the bike that Colombian police use and what Australians call it the "Bush Pig" Others call it “the little tractor” but pretty much everyone calls it the worlds best dual-sport motorcycle. Simple, durable, reliable, and basically invincible, even the most hardened adventurers get a misty glow in their eyes as they start talking about their next great journey and how the DR650 could take them there.
For a 650cc single-cylinder, this bike has a lot of low-end torque, and a decent high end. It's also among the most stable and forgiving bikes I have ever owned and will suit a newer rider fine. The bike corners well, and lightweight makes it surprisingly nimble making it the perfect motorcycle to rent in Colombia. The gauges are easy to read, and everything is quite accessible. The 21-inch front tire gives good directional control on gravel roads but is still fine for fast riding on sealed roads with the standard tires. Although it doesn’t have the marque prestige of the popular European brand that begins with a B and ends with a W, it’s definitely one of the most awesome bikes out there. The only thing it's missing is a fuel gauge. This is easily one of the best motorcycle rental in Medellin.
Here is why the DR650 is so awesome:
Extreme Durability and Reliability - The DR’s simple reliability is positively legendary. Keep it maintained and it will run for a LONG time without issues. In fact, there are numerous reports of DR650's with over 80k miles on them. There's no fancy high-tech fuel injection or ride-by-wire system or computers to leave you stranded far from home. Simple air cooling is used, with an external oil cooler.
Adjustable Seat Height - The DR650 seat height is good for taller riders at an 885 mm (34.8-inch) seat height. We can reduce the seat height by 100mm (4-inches) lower to fit shorter riders. The lowest seat height would be 785mm (30.9-inches).
Waterproof Saddle Bags Available - Let us know and we can provide you with 100% waterproof motorcycle saddlebags. Holds 27.53 Liters per side. The main compartment measures: 15” L x 8” W x 14” H.
Lots of Torque - You're going to be surprised at how much power the single-cylinder produces. The torquey engine has plenty of power for accelerating and climbing grades and is more than enough for Colombian roads. That being said, the torque isn’t so much for the bike to get away from you if you accidentally drop the clutch or pin the throttle but it's definitely enough to have a ton of fun riding through all the twists and curves of Colombia.
Long Distance Touring - In everyday riding, with a combination of freeway and local roads, mileage is around 50.5 mpg, which gives you a range to empty of around 200 kilometers (120 miles) using a stock fuel tank. On the open dirt roads, the DR650 is simply tons of fun to ride, great on fuel, even if you are a little throttle happy.
IS COLOMBIA SAFE?
It is now, things started improving in 2011 and last year, the country welcomed over 4.5 million foreign visitors. I’ve rented motorcycles to hundreds of clients and have never had an issue with security. Colombia is like anywhere else, be careful of pickpockets and theft in crowded places and you'll be fine.
Anthony Bourdain summed it up perfectly: "If you want to find bad people in Colombia, you can surely find them, as you could in New York or Los Angeles. But nowhere have my crew and I been treated better or with more kindness and generosity. I'd bring my family on vacation there in a heartbeat. And hope to soon. As I said before: Colombians are proud. Let them show you what they are proud of."
