2015 BMW F800GS Adventure Review

2015 BMW F800GS Adventure on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Adventure: Unbounded…

No matter where you travel, no matter what the terrain – with the F 800 GS you can master any adventure. This travel enduro has been created for true globetrotters for whom no destination is too remote and who want to conquer the world off the beaten track. The F 800 GS Adventure: the reliable and robust companion for unbounded adventure.

Power: Uncompromising

Powered by the potent 85 hp parallel twin engine, the F 800 GS Adventure helps you leave civilization behind with ease. And with a torque of 61 lb/ft, this enduro has enough power reserve to overcome even the toughest off-road challenge with supreme confidence. Thanks to a 6.3-gallon tank and fuel economy of 55 mpg at 55 mph, it can cover distances where others have already run dry.

Control: Unconditional

Be it sand dunes, mountain passes or river crossings, the F 800 GS Adventure can master any task it may be faced with in faraway places. Its core is the torsion-resistant tubular steel frame with spring travel of 9.1 inches at the front and 8.5 inches at the rear. The rider is supported with the optional “Enduro mode” which optimizes ASC traction control and ABS on loose surfaces. ABS is of course a standard feature.

Character: Unequalled

The F 800 GS Adventure is a true globetrotter from the high windshield to its combined fuel tank protector and saddle bag mountings. In spite of its striking side panels and the larger fuel tank, the distinctive flyline makes the F 800 GS adventure a clear member of the GS family. This motorcycle strives to conquer the world, whether in Sandrover Matte or dynamic Racing Red.
