2013 BMW Models

July 6, 2012 - Earlier this week, BMW Motorcycle Magazine ran a story on the new 2013 F700GS and F800GS models. Both are powered by the same 798cc liquid-cooled, 4-valve engine, and while the F800GS retains its 85 hp at 7,500 rpm rating, the F700GS (formerly the F650GS), gets a small bump to 75hp at 7,300 rpm. The real update for 2013 is that both models come with ABS standard (a new generation of BMW’s two-channel ABS) and the F700GS gets double disc brakes for the first time. Electronic suspension adjustment (ESA) and automatic stability control (ASC) are now both available as factory installed options.

Earlier today, webBikeWorld reported that BMW announced the rest of the 2013 model lineup. ABS is now standard on all models and about a dozen models received updates.

Ed. Note: Missing is the liquid cooled R1200GS/RT. Maybe 2014?
