2015 BMW F800GT Review

2015 BMW F800GT on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Typical GT. Unstoppable tour…

Hit the road – the journey begins. The dynamically-designed F 800 GT offers impressive dynamic performance on every ride – whether idyllic suburbs, winding mountain passes or endless highways.

A twist of the throttle and 90 horsepower ensure that you really can leave everyday routine behind you. The water-cooled 2-cylinder in-line engine with a capacity of 798 cc offers remarkable dynamic performance on every trip, achieving smooth power delivery through its low-maintenance toothed-belt drive. A longer rear-wheel swing arm and tighter suspension ensure a high level of ride stability, guaranteeing superb riding impressions.

The F 800 GT also offers control and comfort with suspension and three different seat heights which provide just the right ergonomics for each individual rider. What is more, the optionally available ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) can be used to adjust the rear rebound-stage damping to road conditions at the press of a button.

Clean lines and a perfectly adjusted touring windshield instantly promise pure riding pleasure. The F 800 GT also makes its mark in terms of paint finishes: there is something for everyone here, from the spirited Valencia Orange metallic and elegant Dark Graphite metallic through to Light White.

Safety is the best travel companion. For this reason, the GT supports every brake maneuver as standard with dual-channel ABS – the most sophisticated system in a mid-range motorcycle. For those looking for an even higher level of safety, assistance is provided by the optionally available ASC.
