Following in the tradition of the iconic boxer-powered GS Adventure models, the F 800 GS Adventure offers the authentic ‘GS Adventure experience’ in this segment for the very first time.
Based on the class-defining middleweight F 800 GS, the new Adventure model delivers an unmatched combination of agility, touring practicality and off-road capability.

In addition to the standard model, which costs just £9,650 OTR, a UK-exclusive edition – the F 800 GS Adventure Travel – featuring a high level of factory-fitted options as standard, will be available for £10,535 OTR.
The F 800 GS Adventure will be arriving in BMW Motorrad UK dealerships on 15 June, with a demonstration model available for test rides at every dealer.
