The new BMW F 800 GS Adventure

BMW_F800_GS_2013

BMW Motorrad is the most successful manufacturer of large-capacity   touring enduros and, with the F 700 GS and F 800 GS, leads the way in   the mid-size category, too.

The new F 800 GS Adventure builds on this position. Based on the   dynamic, off-road-oriented F 800 GS, the Adventure model offers an   optimal combination of agility, touring practicality and off-road   capability. Following the tradition of the popular boxer-engined GS   Adventure models, it provides off-road-oriented touring aficionados,   world travellers and enduro fans with an authentic GS Adventure   experience in the mid-size segment.

The F 800 GS Adventure is powered by the characterful, liquid-cooled   798 cc four-valve twin-cylinder engine as featured on the F 800 GS,   with electronic fuel injection, closed-loop catalytic converter and   six-speed transmission. Developing unchanged maximum power of 63 kW   (85 hp) at 7,500 rpm, and with maximum torque of 83 Nm at 5,750 rpm,   this power plant impresses with quick and lively response, powerful   torque and low fuel consumption.

Engineered and equipped for world travel.   Like the F 800 GS, the Adventure model too features a robust,   torsionally resistant tubular steel spaceframe, although the rear   subframe is reinforced to cater for the larger, 24-litre tank (8   litres more than on the F 800 GS model), which increases the bike’s   range. Like the F 800 GS, the Adventure model is equipped with ABS as   standard, while further safety- and performance-enhancing systems –   Automatic Stability Control (ASC) and Electronic Suspension Adjustment   (ESA) – are available as factory-fitted optional extras, or as special   accessories. These features position the BMW F 800 GS Adventure, along   with the F 800 GS, as the safest mid-size touring enduro on the market.

As another optional extra, the new F 800 GS Adventure is available   with Enduro mode as part of a package featuring ASC.  At the press of   a button, the rider can increase the slip threshold of the ABS and ASC   systems when heading off-road, for an even more dynamic riding   experience and with improved acceleration and braking on loose terrain.

The F 800 GS Adventure boasts a new, masculine bodywork styling that   underlines its globetrotting abilities, while a new, very comfortable   bench seat, a larger windscreen for improved protection against the   elements and hand protectors also support this image. Other new   standard specification on the F 800 GS Adventure includes wide enduro   footrests, an adjustable, reinforced foot brake lever, an engine   protection bar and a pannier rack which also functions as a tank   protection bar.

The highlight of the F 800 GS Adventure   “Launch Edition” is its Sandrover matt paintwork in combination with   three equipment packages. The Comfort package comprises an onboard   computer, heated grips and a centre stand. The Enduro package comes   with ASC plus Enduro mode, and the Special accessories package   features a lockable aluminium case set, a topcase holder and   BMW Motorrad Navigator Adventure including holder and cable.
