2016 BMW F800GS Review

2016 BMW F800GS on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

The F 800 GS: On- and off-road have never been so accessible…

Challenges? Yes! Compromises? No! This is the motto of the F 800 GS. This motorcycle is continuing its long success story and impresses with its versatility for journeys on- and off-road.

High-quality design

In addition to its sporty character, the high-quality design is striking. The new radiator cowl with its galvanized look adds to the visual appeal of the F 800 GS. Details such as the GS model inscription in its new stencil format point to family connections with the R 1200 GS.

Riding fun for everyone.

The low suspension option is available for the F 800 GS. In combination with the low seat, a seat height of 32.3″ can be achieved – perfect for smaller riders.

More technology for more safety.

With ABS as standard and ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) and ASC (Automatic Stability Control) as options, your F 800 GS will not only have more safety features, but your ride will be more comfortable.

 




2016 BMW F800GS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

A SEAT TO SUIT THE DRIVER.

In order to provide every rider the most fun possible with the F 700 GS, there are a variety of possibilities for adjusting seat height individually. There are four different seats and an optional low-slung version, meaning that a total of five different seat heights between 765 mm and 860 mm are available.


MORE INDIVIDUALITY.

With its two different style variations, the new F 800 GS can be adapted to your personal preferences. The styles do not only include the colour design, but also high-quality design and accessory elements directly ex works. And thanks to the comprehensive range of accessories, the F 800 GS can be tailored even further.

Style 1

– Colour: Light white single colour
– Frame colour: Racing red single colour
– Spring strut colour: Red
– Seat colour: Grey / black
– Accessory: Large hand protectors with spoiler attachments

Basic

– Frame colour: Agate grey metallic matte
– Spring strut colour: White
– Seat colour: Grey / black


Style 2

– Colour: Black storm metallic

– Spring strut colour: White
– Seat colour: Grey / black

Water-cooled 4-stroke in-line two-cylinder engine.

TURNS EASILY.

The extremely efficient, water-cooled two-cylinder four-stroke engine with 63 kW (85 hp) and 83 Nm provides abundant riding pleasures – on road or off-road. A reduced-power version with 35 kW (48 hp) is also available – ensuring that holders of EU driving licences under 25 can also enjoy riding a real GS.

 

HIGH-QUALITY DESIGN.

The new radiator cowl with its galvanised look adds to the visual appeal of the F 800 GS, makes it appear more powerful and emphasises its connection with the R 1200 GS. The same is true for the high-quality design of the new ignition lock cover and tank cover. Details such as the GS model inscription with its new stencil format and the new dual-colour seat cover ensure an even more dynamic overall look.

 

ABS, ASC and ESA.

The classic BMW Motorrad ABS comes as standard with this series. The special equipment ASC traction control (Automatic Stability Control) increases safety additionally. Depending on the road conditions, the ASC limits the drive torque of the engine, thereby, significantly increasing active driving safety in borderline situations. Both the ABS and ASC systems may of course be switched off for off-road use. The ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment), including Comfort, Normal and Sport driving modes, not only provides more comfort, but also a safer ride.

 

 

 

 

2016 BMW F800GS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

F 800 GS.

The variant “Style 1” in Light white non-metallic gives the F 800 GS a specifically sporty accentuation.
• Light white non-metallic paint finish.
• Frame in Racing red non-metallic.
• Red spring strut.
• Grey/black seat.
• Large hand protector with large top spoiler.


The variant “Style 2” in Black storm metallic emphasises the powerful, masculine character of the new F 800 GS.
• Black storm metallic paint finish.
• Frame in Agate grey metallic matt.
• White spring strut.
• Grey/black seat.
• Large hand protectors with large top spoiler, tinted windshield, LED turn indicators.

In the basic variant in Racing blue metallic, the new F 800 GS expresses a deliberately fresh, dynamic style.
• Racing Blue metallic matt paint finish.
• Frame in Agate Grey metallic matt.
• White spring strut.
• Grey/black seat.

In both models, powerful forward thrust is ensured by the well-established, powerfully distinctive, liquid-cooled 4-valve 2-cylinder engine with a capacity of 798 cc, fuel injection and 6-speed gearbox. It provides an impressively spontaneous response, remarkable pulling power and a low level of fuel consumption.

In the F 700 GS it has an output of 55 kW (75 hp) at 7 300 rpm and develops a maximum torque of 77 Nm at 5 300 rpm. In the F 800 GS, an output of 63 kW (85 hp) is available at 7 500 rpm and a torque of 83 Nm at 5 750 rpm.

In line with the “Safety 360°” principle, the new F 700 GS and F 800 GS are fitted as standard with a high-performance BMW Motorrad ABS system. Other safety-related features are the optional Automatic Stability Control ASC and the Electronic Suspension Adjustment ESA.

As before, the new F 800 GS combines suitability for road use and touring with profound off-road capabilities while the new F 700 GS is geared more towards motorcyclists who not require the same degree of off-road potential.

 

The popular BMW Motorrad models F 700 GS and F 800 GS have displayed versatile capabilities for years: carefree riding fun due to secure controllability on all surfaces, vigorous drive power and excellent suitability for both day-to-day riding and travel – even when the route consists of nothing but gravel tracks. It is a concept in two variants that has been received with great enthusiasm by many motorcycle fans over the years and has now been visually refined by BMW Motorrad for model year 2016.

With the newly designed tank cover and a likewise newly configured ignition lock cover, both models have an even more fresh and dynamic look. What is more, the elegant metallic appearance of elaborately electroplated elements is applied to the knee covers (F 700 GS) and radiator cover (F 800 GS) along with a partially engraved and newly configured model inscription, conveying enhanced high-end quality and a fascinating contrast with the painted surfaces.

Newly designed two-colour seats round off the fresh, dynamic appearance of the two models. In order to ensure that optimum riding fun on the F 700 GS and
F 800 GS is available to all riders, five possible seat heights are available for each model with four seats and the optional lowered suspension (ex works option). This makes for a wide seat height range of 765 mm – 860 mm (F 700 GS) and 820 mm – 920 mm (F 800 GS).

An overview of highlights in the new F 700 GS and F 800 GS:
• New, emotional design with electroplated elements.
• New F 700 GS paint finish and style variants:
Light white non-metallic, Sakhir orange metallic, Mineral grey metallic.
• New F 800 GS paint finish and style variants:
Light white non-metallic, Black storm metallic, Racing blue metallic matt.
• Five possible seat heights for each model with four seats and optional lowered suspension (ex works option).

Finely tuned character in each model based on new, dynamic colour concepts.

Three paint finish and surface variants in the new F 700 GS and F 800 GS create an equally powerful yet distinctive character for each.
