The BMW R80 GS is a familiar sight all over the world as one of the best-sellers globally. The value of the earlier models has already doubled in recent years, which is a clear indicator that it is heading for classic status and could be a smart investment for anyone looking to make money off of a fun investment. If you do decide to invest in the BMW R80 GS or any other potential future classic, make sure that you have insurance coverage and you can take out a multi-bike policy if you have more than one.
