2012 BMW F800GS

An enduro bike like no other BMW Motorrad has made before: an 800 cc machine with a full 85 hp and torque of 62 ft-lb weighing road-ready just 462 lbs! State-of-the-art engine management with highly economical fuel consumption, but abundant riding fun with powerful sound management, too: truly unstoppable! With a space frame which is not only has a high level of torsional stiffness but also allows room for lots of other highlights such as a large airbox and fuel tank under the seat. Fitted at the front with a 21-inch wheel which provides constant directional stability even over off-road stretches, at the rear with a full 17-inch wheel for the appropriate propulsion power – both naturally with robust spokes.

The dual disc at the front and the single disc at the rear make for a breathtaking braking performance, with further safety enhancement available from the optional ABS. The chassis is adapted to the off-road concept and has generous spring travel which can cope with the odd jump.
