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. Like BMW's 800 lineup, the 700 gets ride-by-wire throttle, updated exhaust, Rain and Road riding modes and other optional modes, new gauges, and a few other minor tweaks.
