F 800 GT

Hit the road – the journey begins. The dynamically designed F 800 GT offers impressive dynamic performance on every tour – whether idyllic avenues, winding Alpine passes or endless highways.

A twist of the throttle and 90 horsepowers ensure that you really can leave everyday routine behind you. The water-cooled 2-cylinder in-line engine with a capacity of 798 cc offers remarkable dynamic performance on every trip, achieving supreme power delivery through its low-maintenance toothed-belt drive. A longer rear-wheel swinging arm and tighter suspension ensure a high level of ride stability, guaranteeing superb riding impressions. Without any bumps.

This sturdy riding fun also offers perfect control and comfort. In the F 800 GT, this is taken care of by the suspension and three different seat heights which provide just the right ergonomics for each individual rider. What is more, the optionally available ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) can be used to adjust the rear rebound-stage damping to road conditions at the press of a button.

Safety is the best travel companion. For this reason, the GT supports ABS. For those looking for an even higher level of safety, assistance is provided by the optionally available ASC.
So now it’s just a question of get up and go! There’s nothing to stop you setting off on an unforgettable journey.
