The pil­lion’s view

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Tracer 700 Group Test -

Two bikes stand head and shoul­ders over the oth­ers for be­ing best for a pil­lion: the BMW and Suzuki. But the BMW just gets it for me.

The F700GS is the eas­i­est bike to get on and off and there’s a de­cent amount of room be­tween you and the rider. The seat is very comfortable, spongy and cups you into place. Wind pro­tec­tion is ex­cel­lent, even at mo­tor­way speeds and you’re not perched up too high over the rider in front, like you are on the Kawasaki. The en­gine is nice and smooth, with al­most zero vibes; you could eas­ily fall asleep on the back. It’s got great grab rails and there’s lots of legroom, too.
