REVIEW

BMW set out to turn its 800GS into an authentic adventure bike and on this first showing have certainly achieved just that. Basically it’s an 800GS with a bigger (underseat) tank, extended bodywork and a host of options. Think of it as a ‘3/4 version of the 1200 Adventure’ (even though, at 800cc, it’s actually 2/3) and you should get the idea. Or, to put it another way, a Range Rover Sport compared to the 1200’s full blown Range Rover. That car has all of the style, accoutrements and, virtually, ability of the bigger original but at a far more affordable price and has proved a huge success as a result. Exactly the same is true of BMW’s new 800 Adventure: it’s credible, effective and more affordable. As I said at the beginning: if only they’d done it earlier…
