Is the BMW F800GS a good bike?

It’s light, slim and perky enough to be a credible off-roader yet it’s also substantial, grunty, roomy and potentially sufficiently well equipped to tackle crossing continents. It’s also got a price that’s hugely tempting too.

  • What’s the difference between the BMW F700 and F800 GS?

    Despite the obvious difference in name, the F700 GS and F800 GS use the identical parallel twin-cylinder 798cc engine, the larger of the two bikes making 85bhp, 10 more than the 700. It also has a upside down forks and longer suspension, a larger front wheel which are spoked instead of cast – all pointing toward a more off-road bias.

    Are there different versions of the BMW F700?

    *In total, there are seven different versions of the F700 and F800 models available in the UK. These are: 1. F700GS (base model) 2. F700GS Rallye. Includes heated grips, hand guards, on-board computer, centre stand, pannier fastenings 3. F700 Rallye LS. Same as Rallye but with low seat and low suspension.

    Which is better BMW 700 or BMW 800?

    The 700 has a lower seat height and the suspension doesn’t travel as far as the 800 and it feels it too, which would be ideal for those requiring easier access to flat foot both feet and certainly noticeable when you swap from the 800!

    Is the BMW F800 good for the road?

    The F800 feels good on the road too. With its extra 10hp to play with and a taller riding position, it would be just as home in the city as mucking around on dried-up river beds. It’s perfectly happy being hustled around twisty A-roads too, despite its off-road ambitions.
