I have now owned my BMW F700GS for 2 years now and covered around 30,000 miles on. It has taken me up and down the Pyrenees and Alps, though some questionable gravel roads and around the UK in style.
Is it worth the change? Let me be honest, if you are happy with your BMW R1200GS, stay with it! It rides beautifully and I loved it. On the other hand, if you are like me and like new toys, go for it and get the new BMW R1250GS!

The production of BMW F750 GS models has been put on hold, in order to correct some reported issues with the engines.
Overall, I am really impressed with this bike. It’s not a R1200GS but it’s not that far from it anymore. The new BMW F850GS now incorporates most of the technology its big sister has, which will make many people like me who ride solo, rethink the bike we ride.
