EICMA 2012: BMW F800GT Announced as Replacement for F800ST
As we reported in August, BMW is replacing its F800ST sport tourer with a new, more touring-oriented version called the F800GT.
Revealed at the 2012 EICMA Show in Milan, Italy, the 2013 BMW F800ST is equipped with a 798cc parallel Twin engine claiming 88 hp at 8000rpm, an increase from the BMW F800ST’s claim of 84 hp at 8000rpm (the 2012 F700GS and F800GS also claims 84hp from a similar engine.)
Other changes include better wind protection, lighter wheels, new higher-mounted handlebars, repositioned footrests, and load capacity increased to 456 pounds from 432 pounds. Like all current BMW motorcycles, the F800GT comes standard with ABS. Luggage, electronic suspension adjustment and automatic stability control are available as add-ons.
