With the moderate consumption of 4.2 liters on country roads, the increased tank capacity is enough for well over 500 kilometers. For globetrotters this is probably the most important argument in favor of the Adventure. However, adventurers should also be financially aware of their resources. Compared to the standard F 800 GS (10 750 euros), the Adventure costs 1300 euros more (12 050 euros).

Playmate for the terrain

After the R 1200 GS, its little sister is now getting an adventure version as well. If you are looking for a comrade to play in the terrain, you could find it – if you are looking for a long-distance travel enduro too.

S.The R 1200 GS has been leading the way for years: around a third of the large boxer enduros are ordered as adventure models (larger tank volume, longer spring travel, larger windshield, crash bars, spoked wheels). Better travel and off-road suitability and, last but not least, a more robust look attract fans to the upgraded version. In this respect, it is only logical that the F 800 GS will now also be given an adventure edition, the BMW F 800 GS Adventure. After all, the 800 series with its more moderate dimensions and lower weight has long been extremely popular, especially among off-road enthusiasts and globetrotters.

Playmate for the terrain

F 800 GS Adventure, surprisingly, is not restricted. In any case not when sitting, and even when standing, the fuel tank, which is nestled close to the flanks in the front, does not force you to bow your legs. Even the passenger is not disturbed by the bulges and continues to sit comfortably and with an open knee in the pillion seat.

Adventure version has remained true to its character

It goes without saying that the F 800 has remained true to its character even in the Adventure version. The compact looking, small BMW F 800 GS Adventure can be casually swung from one lean angle to the next, and with its pronounced steering precision it pulls effortlessly through all curve radii. The larger screen offers better protection from the wind than the smaller shield on the BMW F 800 GS. The 16 kg additional ballast compared to its 225 kg sister is more noticeable in a different way. Especially when starting out of tight bends, the 88 hp parallel twin with the adventurer weighing 241 kilos, which is actually well in the forage, looks strained.

On the other hand, the two-cylinder, hanging so neatly on the gas, inspires when it goes off-road. The power can be dosed precisely, giving the BMW F 800 GS Adventure first-class traction. The traction control, which can be activated at the push of a button (“Enduro mode”), is ultimately only required in extreme cases with this brilliance off the road. Just like the off-road ABS, which allows a lot of slip in this mode, which demands a lot of control in the event of emergency braking.
