2017 BMW F 700 GS and F 800 GS Revealed
The BMW F 700 GS, F 800 GS and F 800 GS Adventure mid-range enduro motorbikes have been updated for the model year 2017.
Aimed at those who like the ride feel of an enduro but do not require quite so much off-road competence, the bikes have now been adapted to the EU4 regulations that are set to take effect in 2017.
The 798 cc parallel-twin unit that produces 75 hp in the F 700 GS dan 85 hp in the F 800 GS and F 800 GS Adventure also receives a newly designed stainless steel tailpipe that can be upgraded to a new Akrapovič HP sport exhaust.
Electromotive throttle controller is also included for an even finer controllability and improved response. At the same time, all three bikes get new standard riding modes “Rain” and “Road” to be used for riding on damp or dry surfaces but “Enduro” and “Enduro Pro” are options reserved for the F 800 GS and F 800 GS Adventure only.
Also fitted is an instrument panel with newly designed and more easily readable dials. An additional Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) ensures the EU4 norm is met, while the display has been extended to include riding mode information.
Not much changes in terms of exterior design save for three new paint finishes for the F 700 GS and F 800 GS, and two additional colours for the F 800 GS Adventure fitted with new galvanised radiator trim elements, a new intake silencer cover and a new ignition lock casing.
