BMW F800 GS Adventure Announced

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

BMW Motorrad announces the new F800 GS Adventure. The new bike is based on the existing FS800 GS and is designed to appeal to the globe-trotting crowd.

The F800 GS Adventure will retain the 85 hp twin of the GS, but gets a host of upgrades like engine guards and more robust bodywork. The Adventure comes fitted with Electronic Suspension Adjustment (ESA), Automatic Stability Control (ASC) and Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS). The ASC is switchable to “Enduro” mode that turns down the wick and allows less intervention when riding on loose terrain.

Wider footpegs, a larger windscreen and improved seat are added to the Adventure. Fuel capacity grows to 24 litres, up from 16 litres on the GS version.

The first 1,000 units will be a special “Launch Edition”, finished in a matte paint finish. These initial specials will also feature heated grips, onboard computer, centre stand and a lockable aluminum case set.

A release date is forthcoming along with a Canadian MSRP.
