F 800 GT

The BMW F 800 GT: Hit the road and let the journey begin.

Simply climb on and go, leave your daily routine behind and enjoy pure riding pleasure: The redesigned F 800 GT gives you even more sporty and dynamic performance on every tour – for idyllic lanes, winding alpine passes and endless highways. Thanks to a punchy two-cylinder in-line engine with an impressive 66 kW (90 hp) of power, every tour will get moving fast – and you’ll be meeting the new EU-4 standard at the same time. This bike also comes with Ride-by-Wire, a range of riding modes and ABS as standard features. Other options include ASC (Automatic Stability Control) and the tried-and-tested Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment). In short: All you have to do is climb on and let your journey begin.

Classic GT. Unstoppable tour.

The design: powerfully lightweight and elegant.

The body features a dynamic design and is ideal for touring in any weather. Clear lines promise pure riding pleasure right from the start – a promise that is delivered. The cockpit features a new dial design and provides a wider range of information. Handsome details like the new windscreen with a matte GT logo or the galvanised side panel with the F 800 GT lettering accentuate the new design. Another eye-catcher is the new rear silencer, which is not only attractive, it also meets the EU-4 standard.

Three colour options are available for a distinct look. Each one gives the F 800 GT a different character, from elegant to super sporty. You can decide which one suits you and your riding style best

The technology: powerful two-cylinder for dynamic touring.

A twist of the throttle and 90 horsepower (66 kW) ensure that your everyday routine won’t catch up to anytime soon. The water-cooled 2-cylinder in-line engine with a capacity of 798 cc provides remarkable thrust on every trip, delivering supreme power thanks to a low-maintenance toothed-belt drive. The long rear-wheel swing arm and tight suspension ensure a high level of ride stability, guaranteeing a superb riding experience.

The equipment: Comfort and safety are the best travel companions.

Perfect control and comfort are also guaranteed with this powerful fun machine: A wide range of seat choices and adjustable clutch and brake levers allow you to tailor the bike to your individual ergonomic needs. The Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) lets you adjust rebound-stage damping in the rear for optimum damping action and riding comfort. Thanks to the Ride-by-Wire system, you now have much finer throttle control. Thanks to the standard Rain and Road modes and the optional Dynamic mode, the F 800 GT can be perfectly adapted to any road surface and riding style.

The BMW Motorrad ABS is also included as a standard feature to assist you with every braking manoeuvre. The optional ASC traction control provides even more safety – especially on wet roads.

More individuality: optional equipment and accessories.

The standard F 800 GT already captures the Gran Turismo ideal almost perfectly by combining sportiness and touring comfort. BMW Motorrad also offers a wide range of optional equipment and accessories for personalising the F 800 GT to your exact needs. For example, we offer a variety of practical storage solutions. With these solutions, you can take anything you want with you, whether for long trips, short outings or your daily commute to work.
