    Does anyone know what color seat would have come on a 17’ GSA, red model? I’m seeing pictures with bikes that have a red and black seat but mine has an all black seat. I have a suspicion that mine is a low seat. Thanks!

    Don't know about the GSA, but my 2017 F700GS came with the 2016 solid color. Later in the same year, BMW was shipping them with multi-colored grey and black seats. I bought mine from an out-of-state dealer. It was one of two white 2017 F700s in their showroom. The other had the two-toned seat. Neither of them were low or comfort seats.

    As it turned out, I bought a Comfort Seats kit which is all black, so the stock seat color didn't matter.

    I thought this was the comfort seat but I’m 5’11” with 32” inseam and can flat foot the bike no problem. IMG_9047.JPG

    Only ever seen it dual tone.

    It's not the stock torture bench:

    Looks like I need to find a red and black one. How do you like those Touratech upper bars?

    Looks sharp! Have you crash tested them? Do I see a tool tube of sorts above your skid plate?
