Compared to the outgoing F800GSA there's a new chassis, new 55cc larger engine making 9bhp more, the seat height is 15mm lower, there's more weather protection and the chain/exhaust have switched sides however it's 12kg heavier and fuel capacity is down one litre. Notably the fuel tank is now in the usual position, rather than under the seat, to help the front/rear weight distribution.
