MCN overall review verdict: If you want something light and easy to ride, which makes a great commuter and is backed up with excellent ABS then your first choice should be the F700GS. It’s not quite as much fun as other middleweight adventure bikes, but it’s a good compromise. The only sticking point is the price. The BMW is the most expensive bike in its class, especially if you start to include all of the extras available. That said, when you do invest in a BMW you are far less likely to lose on depreciation as they tend to hold their value well in the used market.
