This one takes a closer look at the design (very thorough, bordering slow/boring).

Here’s one from the motorcycle show Eicma in Milan.

    HI Jesper,

    I also found one on the road testing in you tube

    and the same of the F650GS (strangely enough a 800cc too)

    I’ve added the F800GS one David. Thanks for the heads up.

    Along with my Hornet 919 I also have a F650GS. Its a great bike otho I dont find my self riding it much compaired to my honda.

    I think you guys in Europe are going to see the F800GS long before we do over here. Something about the dollar being weak and demand for them over there.

    The BMW Motorcycle site has a chance to win one here in the US but even then I think we have to wait until late 2008.

    Kind of a bummer.
