F700 versus F800
Posted in the BMW Motorcycle Forum
#1 Jun 2, 2013
If there are any actual owners of either of these bikes I'd appreciate any advice/comments. I'm considering either of these bikes, but here's where I'm stuck before I test ride them. The new 2014 800 LOOKS awesome. But both of these bikes have the exact same engine. Cycle World Mag just dyno'd the 800 and guess what? HP is at 74.5, and torque at about 58 ft/lb....this is exactly the specs for the F700. I'm thinking I may as well buy the F700 for a while, and if BMW switches to a boxer, then make the switch...The 800 has the new larger tank, and comfort stuff..and that's all ok...but if the engines are practically identical....I'm having a tough time justifying the extra 4-6k for the bike. Am I wrong?
