Mid-size GS gets larger tank and loads more tweaks to enhance its unpaved road potential

BMW'S F800GS has gained Adventure status.

Following on from the 1150GS Adventure and 1200GS Adventure, BMW's successful mid-capacity F800GS gets the Adventure treatment, with a larger 24-litre tank (8-litres more than the F800GS), revised bodywork, a larger screen, 10mm taller seat (890mm), hand guards, wide enduro footpegs an engine protection bar and a pannier rack.

BMW claim the larger tank will extend the bike's range by 75 miles, giving it a 220-mile potential. The F800GS Adventure will have the option of ASC and ESA, BMW's Electronic Suspension Adjustment.

The F800GS retains the same 798cc four-valve parallel-twin engine, with power and torque remaining at 85bhp and 61ftlb.
