New paint scheme options aside, much of the changes lie underneath the skin with all three middleweight dual sport bikes. Euro 4 complains means that both gas emissions and noise levels are significantly reduced, whilst the instrument bin now gains with a mandatory check engine light.
More importantly, the BMW F700 GS, F800 GS and F800 GS Adventure models have gained with selectable ride modes in their 2017 forms.
