BMW revises the F 800 R roadster and sports touring F800 GT with ride-by-wire throttle, riding modes, new dials and more options.
The updated models were unveiled at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan alongside the new G 310 GS and nineT Urban G/S, updated R 1200 GS and K 1600 GTL with reverse, as well as their ConnectedRide technologies.
