F 800 GS Adventure

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 63 kW (85 hp) parallel twin engine, the F 800 GS Adventure helps you leave civilisation behind with ease. And with a torque of 83 Nm, this enduro has enough power reserves to overcome even the toughest off-road challenge with supreme confidence. Thanks to a 24-litre tank and fuel consumption of 4.3. l at 90 km/h, 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 travels of 230 mm at the front and 215 mm at the rear. The rider is electronically supported with the “Enduro mode” which optimises suspension response on loose surfaces. ABS is of course a standard feature.

Character: Unequalled

The F 800 GS Adventure is a true globetrotter from its high windshield through to its combined fuel tank protector and pannier 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 matt or dynamic Racing Red.
