From sand dunes, mountain passes to river crossings, the F 800 GS Adventure masters every task it is faced with on its far-flung travels. Its core is the torsion-resistant tubular steel frame with spring travel of 9.1 inches at the front and 8.5 inches at the rear. The rider is supported with the optional Enduro mode, which optimizes the suspension for loose surfaces.

Two standard riding modes, Rain and Road, are available at the press of a button. The Enduro and Enduro Pro modes are available as optional extras. ABS is on board as standard of course.

  • BMW Motorrad ABS as standard.

    The classic BMW Motorrad ABS comes as standard with this series. Regardless of whether you’re a novice or an experienced rider, this safety feature makes braking easier and safer in the rain, when you’re riding with a passenger and when you’re carrying luggage. This gives the rider the optimum stopping distance at all times without the risk of falling due to the wheels locking. For off-road use, the ABS can simply be switched off.

  • ASC as optional equipment.

    Optional Automatic Stability Control (ASC) also increases safety. Depending on the road conditions, it limits the drive torque of the engine, thereby significantly increasing active driving safety in borderline situations. The system can be switched off for off-road use.

  • Electric throttle as standard.

    Via an electronic throttle system, the rider's request is now passed on directly by a sensor on the throttle grip to the engine control and in turn the throttle valve. Resulting in greatly improved controllability and response characteristics for even more control.

  • Riding modes Rain and Road as standard.

    The Rain mode allows a soft throttle response. The ABS control is set for road operation and ASC is configured for road operation with a low friction coefficient. In Road mode, the throttle response is optimized, the ABS configured for road operation and the ASC for a high friction coefficient.

  • Pro riding modes with Enduro and Enduro Pro as special equipment.

    A soft throttle response characterises the Enduro mode. In addition, the control characteristics of ABS and ASC are configured for light off-road use with road tires. As a dedicated off-road rider, you can also use the Enduro Pro mode, which offers optimized throttle response with ABS and ASC regulation configured for operation with off-road tires, for even more control. The rear wheel ABS is deactivated in this mode, allowing you to perform flawless braking drifts.
