New F800GS Adventure launched!

BMW's new 2013 F800GS Adventure
While we wait for the new R1200GS Adventure, BMW keeps adventure riders sweet by launching its baby adventure bike, the new F800GS Adventure.

Take one BMW F800GS, dial in electronic suspension, traction control and ABS settings, a massive 24 litre tank, up from 16 litres on the standard F800GS, a larger screen, enduro footrests and a stronger sub frame, a rear rack, and you have the new F800GS Adventure. It costs £9650 on-the-road.

There’s also an F800GS Adventure Travel which costs £10,535 and comes with luggage, heated grips, LED bolt-on lights, an on-board computer and a centre-stand. The traction control can be adjusted for enduro mode which allows some slip from the rear tyre and adjusts the ABS.

Like the standard F800GS, the Adventure features the same 798cc parallel twin-cylinder engine which makes 85bhp.
BMW's F800GS Adventure. Some people think the  smaller GS is actually better than the big 1200, so will be interesting to see how this goes down.
Both bikes will be available in the UK from BMW dealers from June 15.

Dealers have told Bike Social that there's already a pent-up demand for the new BMW R1200GS Adventure, based on the new liquid-cooled bike, but as yet they've had no sight of it. It will be interesting to see how BMW manage to bolt-on a massive fuel tank like the old bike's 33-litre tank,
