2016 BMW F 800 GT

Known best for its large-displacement touring motorcycles, the 2016 BMW F 800 GT gives riders a choice—smaller and sportier, and that can be better.

Handling and braking is intuitive, while the engine is sufficient for light touring duties, especially solo. Accessory seats allows the rider the opportunity to customize the ergonomics, and the optional bags are good for week-long rides, with a top box and tank bag available. Traction control is optional, though the motor has impressively smooth throttle response.
