I love watching speedo and tacho needles dancing, shame about the display.

Im looking forward to this one. If you google Bmw Motorrad specials there is a pic of what im 99% sure is the real deal pic of the bike. Check link below. Im also old school when it comes to speedo and tacho,s but it appears all manufactures are going this full digital route.

Are you referring to the White bike at the top?  It does look sexy and definitely gives the Africa Twin in white competition in the looks department.

Beautiful bike except for the monstrous exhaust ... But too "low slung" for my liking - doubt it will ruffle the AT's feathers too much ...  :sip:

Seems like with past GS launches it will only be a standard model, as they show a F800GSA for 2018 in a lovely blue colour!!  :-\

Another bright side:  I see a new source of 21" tubeless rims   :ricky:  Gold rims on a Triple Black - yes please!

The more I look at the picture - the more "classy" the bike appears! But it doesn't look very adventurous...
Improvements I notice over the 800:
Bolt-on pillion pegs.
Possible Ohlins rear shock.
Tubeless rims.
Better and modern LED headlight.
Better front brake reservoir....

We'll have to wait and see...

Just another delivery bike.

Such a shame, BMW has a cool brand, they just need to stop this nonsense.

I'm a big fan of the 800 Beemers and this new one really appeals to me....but I'll probably wait for the adventure version...

So you one of those guys who just buys a bike and thinks its the best? No test rides nothing?
Good for you  :thumleft:
I like to first ride a bike before I make up my mind if its kak or not.

Interesting. They’ve ditched the under seat tank which was a good bonus for it, lowering weight and what not.

Seems to also have a stock chain Oiler?

After 3 beers it’s hard to tell this apart from the new Tiger 800XC...
