2013 BMW F 800 GS Review

2013 BMW F 800 GS is designed for the weekend warrior to tackle any type of terrain or the daily commuter that also wants to go off road. The water-cooled 4-stroke in-line two-cylinder engine has a very surprising mid range punch that puts a smile on any type of riders face. The tubular steel frame, upside-down telescopic forks, dual sided swing arm, and tall riding position all contribute to a remarkably well-balanced and maneuverable machine.

The 2013 BMW F 800 GS is inherently tall as are all of the other BMW GS family members, but once on board the wide handle bars, comfortable seat and electronic suspension adjustment all blend in to make this machine a really fun and easy bike to ride.

The new bike, the first Harley-Davidson factory custom, was dubbed the FX 1200 Super Glide.
