BMW F800GT Overview

The all-rounder F800GT does exactly what it says on the tin; looking for your next commuter or just something to take on the open road the weekend? Check out the BMW F800GT.

BMW’s F800GT replaced the F800ST model that was released over 10 years ago, the newer F800GT has 5bhp more (90bhp) compared to its older brother, it’s fitted with lightweight wheels and a lowered seat height making it more accessible for the smaller riders out there.

You’re guaranteed comfort and safety from the fairings, screen and standard ABS across all machines. Only weighing in at 213kg, it can make for nimble handling and a great stepping stone if you’re looking to move up to a bigger bike.

The upright riding position with the forward slanting footrests means it can be suitable for riders over 6ft too.  BMW offer extras including electronic suspension, tractional control and panniers.

Comfort
200 miles per day is easy and I'm 66
Ride Quality
Light bike that you almost think through bends
Build Quality & Reliability
Just plain good quality. No issues at all in 2 summers of riding
Engine Rating
More than adequate solo and enough with a pillion but not as startling as when solo.
Brake Rating
Brembo discs and ABS makes it a good stopper. If I had to find a complaint it would be that it dives a bit if the front brake is hit first
Running Cost
No additional expense but BMW servicing is NOT cheap. This bike stays with the main dealer for servicing though.
Overall
Pros CommentsGood finish, good quality, nice to ride and very good on fuel. Not really got anything bad to say about it. It's a good lightweight tourer that is largely underrated. A much underrated lightweight tourer. Belt drive and great fuel consumption when ridden sensibly.
Cons CommentsNothing I can think of. It does everything I want well.
