A little google will do the trick:

Seat height: 31.0 in. (780mm)


[edit]The currentF650CS according to the BMW site:
The tank filler manifold, in turn, is positioned conveniently on the right-hand side of the seat, which is available at two different heights: 30.7” (standard) or 29.5” (available as an option). The lower seat height options also incorporates the use of 150/60 ZR 17 rear wheel and 150/ 60 ZR 17 front wheel.[/edit]

There is also a replacement link kit for the suspension which helps a lot. I periodically ride with a young lady who barely reaches 5'4" with her boots on. With the 'Kouba Link' she can almost do flat feet at a stop with her F650 (she also has the lowered seat stuff from BMW).

F650 seat height

BMW also makes a lowered version of the F650 GS (model is GSLA). It has a substantially lower height that allows my 4'10" W to comfortably reach the ground. Note that 06 may be the last year for the F650. If you are in MN, the first black one has our name on it.

There is a silver one for sale in Valporiso, IN last I looked. www.f650.com, click on <classifieds>

Happy shopping!!
