  • On the heavy side, high seat

What Is It?

It's powered by a Euro 4 compliant liquid cooled 853cc parallel twin engine, producing 93.9bhp at 8,250rpm and maximum torque at 6,250rpm.

  • Traction control, 2-level adjustable screen
  • Ride modes: Road, Rain

Compared to the outgoing F800GSA there's a new chassis, new 55cc larger engine making 9bhp more, a 15mm lower seat, more 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. The wire spoked 21" front wheel takes a 90/90 tyre and the rear 17" a 150/70.

Compared to the 2018 road-focused F850GS, which it's based on, you get longer travel suspension, wire spoked wheels, engine bars, larger adjustable screen with side deflectors, off-road pegs, a Stainless Steel rack and a much larger fuel tank but it's 15kg heavier.
