The BMW F 800 GS Adventure is a highly competent motorbike for riders who are serious about owning an off-road capable ADV motorcycle, but is it worth the price?
This Adventure version of the F 800 GS includes extended travel suspension, a 21-inch wheel up front, and a 17-inch wire-spoked hoop in the back, much like the normal F 800 GS.
But with the Adventure edition, in addition to the usual Rain and Road modes, you now have access to the Enduro and Enduro Pro riding modes.
With a larger fuel tank of 6.3 gallons, the BMW F 800 GS Adventure could travel over 350 miles between fill-ups if you maintain a constant 55 mph speed.
This off-road vehicle is for experienced riders or those with extremely long inseams because the seat height is 35 inches (a low seat option from BMW may lower it by nearly two inches).
