Up And Down The Range

BMW's more road focused £7,950 F750GS is essentially the same bike but with cast wheels, a smaller 19" at the front, smaller standard fork, lower seat, less suspension travel and the engine is restricted to 76 bhp. It doesn't get the option of the off-road knobbly tyres or the Enduro Pro riding mode.
