The new Bmw F 800 GT replaces the F 800 ST (+video).
The high-torque, water-cooled 2-cylinder in-line engine with a capacity of 798 cc delivers 90 bhp (F 800 ST: 85 bhp) at 8,000 rpm. The new F 800 GT boasts an even more supreme drive with the maintenance-free secondary drive via toothed belt.
What is more, improved ergonomics, optimised wind and weather protection and an even more practically oriented luggage system provides the basis for “Gran Turismo”.
The new F 800 GT is also fitted as standard with ABS in line with the “Safety 360°” principle. Other optional systems such as Automatic Stability Control ASC and the Electronic Suspension Adjustment ESA enhance handling.
The F 800 GT can also be fitted with an Akrapovič sports silencer. This slip-on silencer provides an earthy 2-cylinder sound. Made of titanium and stainless steel it enables a weight reduction of approx. 1.7 kg as compared to the standard rear silencer.
