BMW F800GT for 2013
BMW’S new baby sports tourer - the F800GT - will also be available in a new rider friendly 35Kw (47bhp) version.

The news comes as the new mini sports tourer, built to replace the FS800ST was launched at the Milan Show.

The new twin-cylinder 798cc bike makes a claimed 90bhp or 66Kw in standard form, an increase of 5bhp over the old F800ST which made 85bhp. But it can also be bought with a new A2-licence friendly 35Kw (47bhp) from the BMW dealer.

Like the ST before it, the GT uses a belt drive, and comes with improved riding position for comfort, better wind protection and is also fitted with ABS as standard.

Electronic suspension (ESA) and traction control can also be fitted as an optional extra.
