The BMW R65 was a light touring motorcycle introduced by BMW in 1978 to add a mid-size motorcycle to its product line.

In 1985 the R65’s engine was put into the same frame and suspension as the R80 which featured a single rear shock absorber (mono-shock) – this provided for a lightweight platform for both touring and urban maneuvering, which was an ideal platform for Police use.
