2015 BMW F700GS Review

2015 BMW F700GS on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

The new F700GS. GS feeling everywhere…

Carefree motorcycling fun for everyone! With the F700GS – the direct successor to the F650GS. A shorter gear transmission ratio in the 75 bhp engine enhances agility while at the same time guaranteeing the bike’s familiar top-class handling. This makes the F700GS an ideal all-round machine within the GS family, suitable for every kind of rider – no matter how experienced.

What was good has just got better: with ABS as standard* and ESA, not to mention ASC as an option, the ride is not just safer but also offers especially high comfort. Low weight, reduced seat height and a lowering option make the F700GS a perfect all-round enduro bike especially for female riders.

GS feeling everywhere: the new design of the windshield and dial faces and the smoke-tinted turn indicators and LED rear light give the F700GS the grown-up look it deserves. The three colour variants offer something for everyone: Black storm metallic / Racing red, Alpine white 3 and Racing blue metallic matt.

As usual, there is once again a wide range of options and special accessories for the F700GS to allow you to tailor your BMW to your individual preferences.
