BMW F 800 GT

BMW F 800 GT

Description :

As successful as the BMW F 800 R, so the shadows will the older sister F 800 ST. So who took the BMW 800 and the all and any revised this vigorously. The result: the F GT 800th BMW unveiled the new middle-class tourer at the EICMA in Milan. From the ST so was the GT. Was there ever? Yes. With colleagues from Triumph. Because of the Sprint ST was the Sprint GT.

Times should only be a coppery from the English say.

But names are not smoke and mirrors? Finally, the GT will convince with their qualities. And are compared to the successful naked sister clearly in the tour area. Through better ergonomics, new full fairing with even better wind and weather protection, and not least with a little more power, the GT will win their customers. The manufacturer refers to a real “Gran Turismo”, in our view, rather then “Format Tourismo”.

Brings us back to sound and fury would.

Let’s talk about facts. The Row Twin now delivers a whopping 90 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and has earned 5 horses to herd them. The torque of 86 NM is already on at 5,800 rev / min.

As is known, the BMW Twin is already well fed, through lack of performance should therefore no complaints coming. ABS is now (as with all BMW models) standard, with automatic stability control ASC and ESA, the electronic suspension is also optionally available as a bespoke luggage.

For more comfort, especially on long trips, the driver ergonomics has been revised. Repositioned footpegs and a higher handlebar to ensure a durable riding position. The maximum load capacity of 207 kg reaffirms the touring capability. Whether the F 800 GT can compete in terms of handling with the nimble R variant, we will test clarified.

Information on prices for the F 800 GT, BMW announced at a later date.
