F 800 GT

"Serious touring" - the BMW F 800 GT shows you how much fun you can have with common sense.

Riding a motorbike is simply great fun. Whether you take a short sporty tour cross country, a trip through the city or a long holiday trip with luggage. That's right - every ride means pure pleasure! This kind of versatility requires an all-rounder which gives the rider whatever is needed - both on winding neighbourhood roady and for fast motorway travel. But common sense is important too: economy, reliability and no complications are just as important as a great visual appearance and pure fun on the road - whether in the city or for sporty weekend tours. The BMW F 800 GT is just such a universal talent, combining pleasure and common sense.


This is what a sports touring bike looks like - combining touring fun and comfort with an impressive sporty touch: elegant, functional trim with superb wind and weather protection. A powerful, highly sophisticated 2-cylinder in-line engine with 80 bhp which fulfils the toughest environmental standards and is right up there when it comes to torque levels. Modern toothed belt drive with loss-free power transmission and without any load alteration, easier on maintenance than a chain drive and with higher durability. The chassis gives you dynamic and stress-free pleasure on winding country roads, you enjoy uncomplicated handling in the city and can cover lengthier distances including swift spells on the motorway with a high degree of ride stability. And as is characteristic of BMW, there are many intelligent accessory ideas which will enable you to put together your own personal sports touring bike.
