Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > F700GS
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The F700GS doesn't get a lot of press, but continues to fill a niche for riders looking for a midsized adventure bike with a lower seat height. It uses a detuned version of the parallel twin that powers the F800GS, making 75 hp, 10 less than the F800, and comes with cast instead of wire wheels. For 2016 it gets a minor cosmetic makeover.
