BMW Motorrad has updated the 2017 F700GS with several new refinements. As before, BMW’s popular parallel-twin middle-weight adventure bikes offer the same versatility and accessible seat height, along with excellent fuel efficiency everyday driveability. Now with several key functionality and styling updates for 2017, BMW has improved the breed even further. See a description of the new model year changes below:

EU4 Adaptation and Newly Designed Tailpipe

The 798 cc engines have been adapted to the EU4 regulations for model year 2017. The visual hallmark here is the newly designed end piece of the stainless steel tailpipe. The HP sports exhaust by Akrapovič has also been redesigned and is available as an Original BMW Motorrad accessory.

Electromotive Throttle Controller for Improved Response

An electromotive throttle controller now passes on the rider’s commands directly from a sensor on the twist grip to the engine control system and therefore to the throttle valve. The result is even finer controllability and an improved response. At the same time, this also enables the new standard riding modes “Rain” and “Road” to be used for riding on damp or dry surfaces as well as the modes “Enduro” and “Enduro Pro” – available as an ex works option (for the 2017 F800GS / F800GS Adventure only) – which are designed for lighter and more intense off-road use respectively.

Instruments with New Dials and More Information

The 2017 F700GS, F800GS and F800GS Adventure are fitted with newly designed and more easily readable dials. An additional Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) ensures the EU4 norm is met, while the display has been extended to include riding mode information.

New Paint Schemes and Styling

Powerful yet distinct character qualities are expressed in three paint finish/style variants for each of the new F700GS and F800GS, and there are two additional paint finishes, New side reflectors are also used on fork slider tubes and fixed fork tubes.
