Why didn't BMW go with a 18/21" combo for the F800GS?

Please bear with me if it is a stupid question, but I tend to think of the F800GS as BMW's attempt to make a GS that is a lighter, and more capable machine offroad than its big brother - while still retaining civilised road manners and pillion comfort.

Maybe that's not what they were going for and I've misinterpreted it, but say they were aiming for this - why did they go with the 17/21 wheel combo over an 18/21 that has seen action in offroad oriented bikes such as KTM's and the HP2E to good effect?
