The BMW F800GS is an authentic adventure motorbike that has been well regarded and highly reviewed amongst motorcyclists.

It can be ridden on an A2 motorbike licence. Although the BMW F800GS Adventure requires a restriction of 45%, it will deliver buckets of fun, great range and a host of features that usually don’t come with an A2 bike.

Moreover, once you exchange your A2 licence for the full motorbike licence, you will be unleashing nearly double the power. Meaning, you won’t need to think about upgrading from the F800GS Adventure to get more power.
