Thumb 2015 F800GS - photos

Looks like the 2015's are starting to appear in North America. I found these pics on the intraweb, courtesy of a dealer in California.

The red frame does look pretty. What amazes me is that in the 8 years since the launch of the bike, BMW has been able to get away with small iterative changes and still retail sales. Maybe 2016 is the year when the nuda engine shows up.

Are those Anakee 2 tires? I thought they weren't making those anymore. Where can I get some?

My favorite adventure tires! I thought I bought them all up.
I hope they bring them back!

Anakee 3s suck!

The KLR650 too!

I'm digging the red frame. I'm wondering if it's the same ol' rear shock - just painted grey? Exact same bike as 2014 otherwise?

I doubt it. BMW has been very consistent about not fiddling with things that don't work

Obsolete, but some are still out there, mostly fronts. Google brings up
some at Revzilla, others. The Anakee 3 is it's replacement...

It really does. I had one of the old "red frame, black plastics" ninja 650, and I always loved the look of it. It just stood out. This one has a similar level of "hey that's cool"
