BMW debuts F 800 GS “30 Years GS”

Motorcycle Preview

Introduced in 2007, the BMW F 800 GS enduro motorcycle expanded the BMW model range, with an all-new engine configuration–a parallel twin.

Like its counterparts, the 800 GS, called a “dynamic grand touring enduro perfectly suited for off-road use,” by BMW, has a vigorous look and long-travel suspension.

Weighing just 456 pounds with a full fuel tank, the F800 GS is designed for riding both on- and off-road, plus it has the traits needed for fatigue-free riding qualities for long tours.

As a special model, the F 800 GS “30 Years GS” celebrates a major anniversary in the GS line.

As its first highlight, the F 800 GS “30 Years GS” also comes in exclusive Alpine White non-metallic paintwork with three-colored decals in the traditional livery of BMW Motorrad Motorsport as well as the “30 Years GS” model designation on the airbox cover, hearty hand protectors with a stainless-steel reinforcing bar, a large spoiler element, and aluminum engine protection bars.

The seat finished in red, with its three-dimensional “GS” stamp at the front of the seat bottom as well as white turn indicators.

Like the other GS BMWs, the F 800 GS “30 Years GS” may also be further upgraded individually through the addition of special equipment and optional extras from the BMW Motorrad catalog.

The seat reduced in height available as both special equipment and as an option straight from the factors comes only in black.

Highlights of the BMW F 800 GS “30 Years GS”:

> Paintwork in Alpine White non-metallic.

> Three-colored decals in the livery of BMW Motorrad Motorsport.

> “30 Years GS” model designation on the airbox cover.

> Hand protectors with stainless steel frame, plastic protectors, and an extra-large spoiler element.

> Robust engine protection made of aluminum.

> White turn indicators.

> Seat in red with three-dimensional “GS” stamp at the front of the seat bottom.

“Launching the “30 Years GS” special versions of the BMW R 1200 GS, the R 1200 GS Adventure, the F 800 GS, and the F 650 GS, BMW Motorrad is paying its tribute to the outstanding success of the GS models both in the production of series machines and in motorsport.”

“Indeed, it was also motorsport that provided the input for the attractive design of the Edition Models in the livery of BMW Motorrad Motorsport thirty years ago.” — BMW
