-- New BMW F 800 GS Adventure
-- By Trevor Hedge
The new F 800 GS Adventure is based on the highly successful off-road-oriented F 800 GS and adds extra features such as a strengthened sub-frame to cater for the new 24-litre fuel tank (8 litres up on F 800 GS). This extends the range of the machine by approximately 120km.
An updated seat, larger screen and hand protectors are also fitted to the F 800 GS Adventure along with wider enduro footrests, adjustable rear brake lever, engine protection bars and a pannier rack which is also designed to protect the machine during a fall.
Optional is also a further Enduro mode to supplement the standard ASC/ABS system to allow for more serious off-roading thanks to increase slip parameters in the system mapping.
Three equipment packages will be available although it is not yet confirmed which combinations will be available in Australia the following are on offer overseas. The Comfort package includes an onboard computer, heated grips and centre stand. The Enduro package ships with ASC plus Enduro mode while the Special accessories package includes lockable aluminium cases, a topcase holder, BMW Motorrad Navigator Adventure GPS system including holder and cable.
Australian delivery dates and prices are yet to be confirmed.
