1 of 6

BMW's F700GS and F800GS get a minor refresh for 2016, with newly-designed fuel tank covers and a host of minor cosmetic changes aimed at giving the duo a mild refresh.

Owners can specify one of five possible seat heights with four different seats and there’s an accessory lowered suspension option too.

The F700GS has a variant called ‘Style 1’ which comes in non-metallic white paint, red frame, grey/black seat cover and large hand protectors. There is also a basic version available in orange with a grey painted frame, or grey metallic with grey metallic matte finish frame.

The F800GS get a ‘Style 1’ version too. This is the same non-metallic white with a red frame, red spring strut and grey/black seat. A ‘Style 2’ option gets black metallic paint, grey frame and along with the standard hand protectors it also gets LED indicators. A basic version in blue is also available.

There are no mechanical changes to the engines, meaning power outputs of 75bhp for the F700 and 85bhp for the F800 remain.
