BMW Motorrad has unveiled the new
BMW F 700 GS and F 800 GS. With the newly designed tank cover and a newly
configured ignition lock cover, both models have an even more fresh and dynamic
look. What is more, the elegant metallic appearance of elaborately
electroplated elements is applied to the knee covers (F 700 GS) and radiator
cover (F 800 GS) along with a partially engraved and newly configured model
inscription, conveying enhanced high-end quality and a fascinating contrast
with the painted surfaces.
Newly designed two-colour
seats round off the fresh, dynamic appearance of the two models. In order to
ensure that optimum riding fun on the F 700 GS and F 800 GS is available to all
riders, five possible seat heights are available for each model with four seats
and the optional lowered suspension (ex works option). This makes for a wide
seat height range of 765 mm - 860 mm (F 700 GS) and 820 mm - 920 mm (F 800 GS).
In both models, powerful
forward thrust is ensured by the well-established, powerfully distinctive,
liquid-cooled 4-valve 2-cylinder engine with a capacity of 798 cc, fuel
injection and 6-speed gearbox. It provides an impressively spontaneous
response, remarkable pulling power and a low level of fuel consumption.
In the F 700 GS it has an
output of 55 kW (75 hp) at 7 300 rpm and develops a maximum torque of 77 Nm at
5 300 rpm. In the F 800 GS, an output of 63 kW (85 hp) is available at 7 500
rpm and a torque of 83 Nm at 5 750 rpm.
In line with the "Safety
360°" principle, the new F 700 GS and F 800 GS are fitted as standard with
a high-performance BMW Motorrad ABS system. Other safety-related features are
the optional Automatic Stability Control ASC and the Electronic Suspension
As before, the new F 800 GS
combines suitability for road use and touring with profound off-road
capabilities while the new F 700 GS is geared more towards motorcyclists who
not require the same degree of off-road potential.
