2018 BMW F 800 GS Adventure

For rider who seriously want to and off-road capable ADV motorcycle, the 2018 BMW F 800 GS Adventure is a highly capable machine.

Like the standard F 800 GS, this Adventure version has long travel suspension and a 21-inch wheel up front to go along with the 17-inch wire-spoked hoop in the rear.

With the Adventure version, however, you get access to optional Enduro and Enduro Pro riding modes, in addition to the standard Rain and Road modes.

2018 BMW F 800 GS Adventure specsThe fuel tank is bumped up to 6.3 gallons, giving the 2018 BMW F 800 GS Adventure a potential range of nearly 350 miles between fill-ups, if you ride at a steady 55 mph.

Also, the GSA gets engine protection and the panniers mounts are standard, though the panniers are not.

The seat height is 35 inches (an optional low seat from BMW can move that down over two inches), so this is an off-road machine for experienced riders, or those with very long inseams.
