The F 800 GS: On- and off-road have never been so accessible.
Challenges? Yes! Compromises? No! This is the motto of the F 800 GS. This motorcycle is continuing its long success story and impresses with its versatility for journeys on- and off-road.

High-quality design
In addition to its sporty character, the high-quality design is striking. The new radiator cowl with its galvanized look adds to the visual appeal of the F 800 GS. Details such as the GS model inscription in its new stencil format point to family connections with the R 1200 GS.

Riding fun for everyone.
The low suspension option is available for the F 800 GS. In combination with the low seat, a seat height of 32.3" can be achieved - perfect for smaller riders.

More technology for more safety.
With ABS as standard and ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) and ASC (Automatic Stability Control) as options, your F 800 GS will not only have more safety features, but your ride will be more comfortable.
