Carefree motorcycling fun for everyone! With the F 700 GS – the direct successor to the F 650 GS. A shorter gear transmission ratio in the 75 bhp engine enhances agility while at the same time guaranteeing the bike's familiar top-class handling. This makes the F 700 GS an ideal all-round machine within the GS family, suitable for every kind of rider – no matter how experienced.
What was good has just gotten better: with ABS as standard* and ESA, not to mention ASC as an option, the ride is not just safer but also offers especially high comfort. Low weight, reduced seat height and a lowering option make the F 700 GS the perfect easy-to-ride all-round adventure bike for any rider.
GS feeling everywhere: the design of the windshield and dial faces and the smoke-tinted turn indicators and LED rear light give the F 700 GS the grown-up look it deserves.
As usual, there is once again a wide range of options and special accessories for the F 700 GS to allow you to tailor your BMW to your individual preferences.
The F 700 GS. GS feeling everywhere.
