BMW F650GS or F700GS ?

  1. Just wondering if anyone has any experience or advice on these two bikes?

    I believe they're pretty much the same bike but just a few years difference. Would it be worth the extra $3.5-4K to buy new over a 3yr old one?

    I wish the budget would stretch to the F800GS though but I'll just have to save and upgrade to a 1200 in a few years I think. Maybe when the kids move out (the eldest is 3 lol )

  2. I had a Aprils Pegaso 650 and just changed to the f700gs and the difference is immense. Not just power but how it rides. Lovely to have all the safety features including a petrol gauge. Going from 45 to 75hp is enough of a jump for me!
