Following the widespread success of the boxer-engined GS Adventure models, BMW Motorrad has decided to continue the “Adventure” range into its mid-sized enduro, the F800GS. Priced competitively in the marketplace and below the full-sized R1200GS, the F800GS has proven itself popular in a variety of adventure motorcycling circles around the world. The F800GS Adventure is equipped with the same liquid-cooled, 85hp parallel twin engine as the standard F800GS, but features an larger fuel tank with an additional 8 liters of capacity.
The additional fuel brings the total capacity of the F800GS Adventure to 24 liters, and extends the range of the bike by roughly 120km or 75 miles. To compensate for the extra weight of a larger fuel tank, BMW has also reinforced the rear subframe to ensure there are no fatigue issues over time.
