new color, fixed the pee cup, conventional switches, and it's heavier. No mention of bigger fueltank.

Hmmm...well I guess girls can pretend to go off-road, just like their Big-GS siblings
Sure are pretty bikes, it'd be a shame to get them dirty.

Nah.. the 449/511 is butt ugly, and that mangled metal around the swingarm pivot... looks like they'd been modelling with a mechano set! Then again, not fully impressed with the style of the current crop of BMW Husqvanas.

Some of us 'girls' do take them off road, no pretending at all!

The best thing they could do for the 800 is put adjustable suspension damping on it . Decent spring rates would also help . Till then I`ll never take it seriously as a dirt bike .

I really like the look of the new ones, shame they didn't put a few more ponies in the F800 as well though..

I think when the new range comes out its time for an upgrade ;)

problem is, they can sell everyone they bring into the country, so why do they need to upgrade them?

I thought the Tiger XC would shake BMW up but its had zero impact by the looks of it?

Just wait for the Husky 900, I reckon tha's where its heading!!



I quite often get dirt on mine, it seem's to like it!!
