BMW F800 GS Test Teaser

Posted: 12 Feb 2011 09:00 PM PST

Hello everyone, here is a teaser video of our latest test ride of the BMW F800 GS courtesy of San Jose BMW.

We took this 85 HP dual sport motorcycle through the twisty south bay hills, mud, and dirt. Just listen to that engine roar.

Boasting 62 ft·lbs of torque, it had ample power to propel us up steep grades and over tricky obstacles.

The unique thing about this middleweight bimmer is that with the gas tank in the rear, under the seat, the engine can sit higher allowing for more ground clearance.

Equipped standard with Pirelli Scorpion Trail tires on 21 inch diameter front wheels, the transition from street to dirt is nearly seamless.

A comfortable stretch from the ground to the 34.6 inch seat height, the riding position allows an equally good view of the dusty terrain ahead or the miles of bumper to bumper cars.

With plenty of zip in the throttle, this motorcycle can stir up quite a dust cloud, or tear down the highway with ease.

Standard package priced at $12,900 with center stand and anti-theft alarm priced separately at $175 and $395. The 2011 BMW F800GS is available in Lava Orange Metallic with Black Satin, or Alpine White color schemes.
