No, do not throw in the F800GS motor. Thats what the F800GS is for.

Don't get me wrong, I really like the bike. Just would have a hard time throwing my money down when I could pick up a Tiger with more horses. But I guess I'd have to ride both first, then make up my mind.
The F650/700GS motor has a much better low end and midrange powerband
for people who want that kind of power and not the top end concentrated F800GS powerband.
