BMW F 750 GS 2018

Anyone who regards the BMW F 750 GS merely as an entry-level bike is doing it an injustice. Although the low seat height, easy handling and pleasant engine response are indeed suitable for beginners, the "small" GS is also a lot of fun for advanced riders. The possibility of raising the F 750 GS to the level of an upper-class bike with all kinds of luxury features is unique and makes it the ultimate wolf in sheep's clothing.

The new edition of the Tiger 800 XC can be considered quite successful. Even the "conventional" version can do much more than its predecessor thanks to the ride-by-wire system and standard traction control and ABS (both can be switched off). However, if you want to venture off-road more often, which is definitely what the designers had in mind thanks to the large wheels and spoke rims, you should choose the Tiger 800 XCx, which costs just under 1000 euros more. Thanks to the freely selectable riding modes, the x-version can be optimally tuned to the respective terrain. In addition, there is an engine guard, self-resetting turn signals, cruise control, main stand, underride protection, an additional 12V socket and hand protectors - which probably more than justifies the extra charge.
