BMW’s F 800 R and F 800 GT have proven popular with smaller riders, and for 2017 both models are receiving updates and new color options.

Perhaps the biggest change is the addition of ride-by-wire, which enables riding modes. Rain and Road riding modes will come as standard on both models, while Dynamic ride mode will be equipped as an option. A revised instrument cluster will now include the chosen riding mode, as well as new dials that are easier to read.

Check out the 2015 F 800 R and see what’s new this year.

Both bikes will have a newly Euro 4-compliant, liquid-cooled, 798cc parallel twin engine that is good for a claimed 90 horsepower. The F 800 GT will also have minor cosmetic changes, including a windshield with “F 800 GT” inscribed on it and a new-look model designation on the bodywork.
