F 800 GS

The F 800 GS: On and off-road have never been so close.

Challenges? Yes! Compromises? No!
This is the motto of the F 800 GS – the sportiest member of the large GS family. The motorcycle is continuing its long success story and impresses with its enormous versatility for both on and off-road journeys. Simply an incredibly versatile enduro with a sports background.

High-quality design

In addition to its sporty character, its high-quality design is striking. The new radiator cowl with its galvanised look lends the F 800 GS a special quality and a more powerful appearance. Details such as the GS model inscription in its new stencil format point to its family connections with the R 1200 GS. And with the style Exclusive, you can personalise your F 800 GS even more.

Riding fun for everyone.

The low-slung option is also available for the F 800 GS. In combination with the low seat, a seat height of 820 mm can therefore be achieved – perfect for smaller riders.

More technology for more safety.

The Ride-by-Wire electronic control system gives the rider much finer throttle control. The Rain and Road riding modes are standard features. The additional Enduro and Enduro Pro modes make the GS even more multifunctional. With ABS as standard and ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) and ASC (Automatic Stability Control) as an option, your ride will not just be safer, but also comfortable.
