Low Seat Options for the BMW F 700 GS

Plus, fun new TV spots for BMW

3/26/2013

Shorter riders, take note! The BMW F 700 GS is now available in two different seat heights, making it easier for riders of shorter stature to get in the saddle of BMW's popular GS model family, which includes the top-selling BMW 1200 GS and the newly introduced F 800 GS. A lowered suspension option is also now being offered straight from the factory.

Standard seat height for the BMW F 700 GS is 32.3 inches, while the new lower seat option is 31.1 inches. That low seat combined with a lowered suspension gets the bike down to 30.1 inches, manageable for a wide variety of riders. 

The F 700 GS was designed to attract riders who are not yet confident on BMW’s other on-road/off-road bikes, providing the opportunity to experience that type of riding in a manageable yet powerful package.

The narrow “nose” on the seat of the BMW F 700 makes it easier for a rider’s legs to reach the ground.
