2018 BMW F 700 GS Buyer’s Guide | Specs & Price

2018 BMW F 700 GS

Don’t let the 700 designation fool you. The 2018 BMW F 700 GS actually has a 798cc parallel twin motor—it’s just detuned to “700” status.

Dropping the 800’s power to 75 horses at 7000 rpm gives it some licensing and insurance benefits in various countries, so all of a sudden the 800 is a 700.

2018 BMW F 700 GS Buyer's Guide More of a street-going GS, the F 700 has cast aluminum wheels rather than wire-spoke, though 6.7 inches of suspension travel is generous.

Regardless, it’s a capable machine for a rider who wants access to a twin-cylinder GS at a lower price and with less intimidating power.
