BMW F800GT (2013 - 2020)

Middleweight sport-tourers are not very common and the BMW F800GT is one of the very few A2 legal motorcycles available in this category. Its parallel twin engine is smooth at all speeds and the bike handles really well. It has very good fuel economy and offers enough power for long-distance commuting.

The bike offers premium build quality for a reasonable price, but there are not that many features in the standard version.

The BMW F800GT comes equipped with a large windshield and ABS. Traction control, panniers and electronic suspension are not included in the standard version and you will have to pay extra money for them.
