Until now, BMW Motorrad has applied the “Adventure” moniker only to its large GS models with Boxer engines. In mid-June 2013, however, that changed with the debut of the all-new 2014 BMW F800GS Adventure, a bike designed to be better than a standard F800GS while also being a much-improved touring rig.
So, what makes this new version of the BMW F800GS an Adventure? It starts with the tubular steel trellis frame, which is basically stock F800GS hardware but is fitted with a strengthened rear subframe designed to handle the increased loads and the heavier new fuel tank, which, at 24 litres is larger than a standard F800GS’s. What’s more, the F800GS Adventure has new bodywork designed to keep proportions right, even with the large tank, while a larger windscreen, a more comfortable bench seat (now two-tone) and hand protectors make the bike much more pleasant on long days in the saddle. Other F800GS Adventure-specific parts include wide enduro footpegs (with removable rubber covers), a strengthened (and adjustable) foot brake lever, a pannier rack that also protects the large fuel tank, and a tubular protection bar for the engine. The F800GSA is also more suited to two up riding than the F800GS
Regarding the engine, it’s unchanged from the F800GS. It’s the familiar, liquid-cooled, 798cc parallel-Twin that smoothly puts out a claimed 85 horsepower at 7500 rpm and 61 ft.-lb. of peak torque at 5750 rpm. The transmission is also the same, a six-speed that helps BMW’s catalyst-equipped dry-sump powerplant stay in the thick of its powerband.
