Well I believe it will be true, but that pic is a photoshop.

Plus it will be an F800GS and hopefully not belt drive.

I thought it was about the same weight as an 1100 but a smaller motor for European legislation purposes, some of them were restricted to allow learners to ride them.

I have seen a couple of R850,s but not the GS.

Best thing about them is the rear bevel box has really high ratio I would love one on the GSV it effectively changes second to where the current first is.
