The Bombardier DS 650 was an all-terrain vehicle intended for motocross and other off-road applications. It was especially suited for sandy terrain; in fact, the "DS" in the name stands for "Dune Sport." The DS 650's heavy weight makes it less of a choice for motocross tracks that involve a lot of jumping.
The Bombardier DS 650 had a liquid-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine with a dual overhead camshaft and a displacement of 653 cc. It had a dry-sump lubrication system and a Mikuni BSR 42 mm carburetor. It had a capacitor discharge ignition system and an electric starter. It had chain drive with a five-speed manual transmission. Its fuel tank had a capacity of 3.5 gallons.
Brakes and Suspension
The front brakes were dual hydraulic discs, and the rear brake was single hydraulic disc. The front suspension consisted of dual A-arms with 12 inches of travel. The rear suspension consisted of a single swingarm with 11.5 inches of travel.
The front tires had diameter of 21 inches and width of 7 inches on 10-inch rims. The rear tires had a diameter of 20 inches with a width of 11 inches on 9-inch rims. The wheelbase was 50.2 inches. Overall, the Bombardier DS 650 measured 77.5 inches long, 49.5 inches wide and 46.5 inches tall, and its claimed dry weight was 490 pounds. It cleared the ground at a height of 4.75 inches.
