BMW F800GSA (2013 onwards)

The BMW F800GSA is an authentic adventure motorbike that has been well regarded and highly reviewed amongst motorcyclists.

It can be ridden on an A2 motorbike license. Although the BMW F800GSA 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 license for the full motorbike license, you will be unleashing nearly double the power. Meaning, you won’t need to think about upgrading from the F800GSA to get more power.

You will need a restrictor to ride the BMW F800GSA on an A2 license. See the BMW F800GSA specifications table for restriction info, and the restrictor kits section to see what restrictors are available for the BMW F800GSA.
