2015 BMW F800GS Review

2015 BMW F800GS on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

F 800 GS: on and off-road have never been so close together…

This is the motto of the revised F 800 GS – the sportiest member of the big GS family. The motorcycle continues its longstanding success story, providing impressive versatility both on and off the road: the ultimate versatile enduro machine with sporty genes.

The front section of the body in particular has undergone significant transformation: the new side trim, intake snorkel, upper mudguard and a new windshield give the bike that extra dash of dynamic performance, reflecting the off-road side of the F 800 GS.

Low suspension is now available as an option for the F 800 GS, too. So in conjunction with the low seat, this means it is possible to create a seat height of 32.3 inches – perfect for riders preferring a lower seat height.

Meanwhile, ABS as standard*, ESA and the optional ASC (Automatic Stability Control, can be turned off) ensure the familiar degree of comfort and the necessary safety.
