BMW has created some new updates and kits for its F800GS for the 2012 model year. the BMW F 800 GS Triple Black kit, which takes on the same Triple Black details as used on the R 1200 GS and R 1200 GS Adventure.

The F 800 GS Triple Black gets a new granite grey frame with updated graphics, a Nurburg Silver fork, black stems and a Rally black and grey seat.. All that comes finished with BMW’s new black livery for an overall mean look

Inspired by the biennial BMW GS Trophy event , the BMW F800GS Trophy. The bike is painted in Alpin Weiss uni and uni Desertblau, combined with special styling. Big hand protectors with spoiler, an aluminum engine protection and a seat in black / gray highlight the rally enduro character.

It is time to set forth – into a new age, on a new generation of enduro bikes. With low weight and abundant power reserves. Able to cope with real terrain as well as perform amazing banking feats on asphalt. An enduro bike like no other BMW Motorrad has made before: an 800 cc machine with a full 85 bhp of horsepower and torque of 83 Nm weighing no more than around 200 kg! State-of-the-art engine management with highly economical fuel consumption, but abundant riding fun with powerful sound management, too: truly unstoppable! With a space frame which is not only has a high level of torsional stiffness but also allows room for lots of other highlights such as a large airbox and fuel tank under the seat. 

Fitted at the front with a 21-inch wheel which provides constant directional stability even over off-road stretches, at the rear with a full 17-inch wheel for the appropriate propulsion power – both naturally with robust spokes. The dual disc at the front and the single disc at the rear make for a breathtaking braking performance, with further safety enhancement available from the optional ABS.

The chassis is adapted to the off-road concept and has generous spring travel which can cope with the odd jump. Even though this bike is perfect when it comes off the production line: it wouldn’t be a BMW if there weren’t an extensive range of special accessories available for it – so that you can make your BMW even more individual. This modern enduro – almost like a fun bike in its naked state – can thus be turned into an adventurous long-distance runner, not just visually but functionally too. Fuel up with a quick test ride from your BMW Motorrad dealership – then start planning your first trip!

This fall, the legendary GS gets even more legendary with the incredible new F 800 GS. It's lean. It's mean. It's ready to tackle everything from dual sport rides in the woods or desert to long-haul adventure touring. With a lightweight design and eye-opening power, the F 800 GS is the most off-road oriented GS ever built. A parallel twin engine with 85 charging horses and 62 lbs/feet of torque give it startling speed and breathtaking acceleration. Throw in a dry weight of just 392 lbss, six-speed gear box, switchable ABS, wide foot rests and a 4.2 gallon tank located under the seat for a low center of gravity, and you get a enduro light enough for amazing handling no matter where you're headed. If you want all the capabilities of the GS in a lighter, tighter, totally aggressive package, the destined-to-be-a-classic F 800 GS is your ride.
