This is our BIKE

The latest rendition of the BMW F800 GS is the perfect balance between off-road prowess, on-road maneuverability, straight-line power, and hill climbing torque. Slotted between the heavier R1200 GS and the F700 GS, the F800 GS is an ideal marriage of lightweight maneuverability and large bore acceleration. The F800 GS is no compromise; it handles like a sportbike when you want it to and an enduro bike when you need it to. On and off-road have never been closer together. Prior to the F800 GS’s arrival, the only options for adventurers were 650cc singles and 1200cc twin cylinder bikes. The Bimmer created its own segment that was quickly embraced by enduro riders. This has proven to be a lucrative segment over the last couple of years. The profitability in this segment has urged BMW to revise its hot adventure bike for the first time since its conception.
