BMW F800 GS Adventure

BMW F800 GS Adventure

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…
