ADVENTURE BIKE BUILD: TOURATECH F800GS

 
(11/1/2012)
 
 
 
When Touratech learned that BMW Motorrad was updating their mid-size adventure motorcycle, the F800GS, they were excited to see what changes the Bavarian motorcycle manufacturer would make. While the updates were primarily aesthetic, the 2013 BMW F800GS now comes equipped with two-channel ABS and optional Automatic Stability Control (ASC), as well as Electronic Suspension Adjustment (ESA). It’s also available in three new color combinations - Kalamata Metallic, Cordoba Blue and Alpine White.
Shortly after it was unveiled, Touratech-USA made arrangements to take early delivery of an Alpine White F800GS. The team has installed an assortment of adventure accessories which turned our updated F800GS into the ultimate adventure motorcycle.
“The Touratech accessories we’ve installed on our new F800GS, including the Zega Pro pannier system, tinted windscreen and new Expedition Skid Plate, allowed us to take a good motorcycle and make it a great motorcycle for long-distance adventure touring.”
– Paul Guillien, General Manager, Touratech-USA
Additionally, Touratech-USA’s General Manager, Paul Guillien, spent a few days testing both the bike and the accessories they installed, including the new Expedition Skid Plate, Works Footpegs and Upper Crash Bars and more.
