F 800 GS

The Sportiest Member.

The BMW F 800 GS

Challenges? Yes! Compromises? No!

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 fuel tank 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.

Lowering 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 820 mm - perfect for shorter riders and women.

Meanwhile, ABS as standard*, ESA and the optional ASC ensure the familiar degree of comfort and the necessary safety.

The F 800 GS comes in three exciting colour variants: Kalamata metallic, Alpine White 3 und Cordoba Blue. From tough and modern to athletic and dynamic - this bike is guaranteed to offer something for everyone.

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