    The ST was made from 2006 to 2013. The GT was made from 2014 to 2018.

    I think they played with the fairings in the first GT year, some look like a GT, some still had a ST look from the ones I had seen

    The different two tone paint and roundel placement makes them look different
    VIN# should be accurate

    All I think that HSVPhil meant with his comment is the F800GT is definitely a SPORT-touring bike.. emphasis on SPORT, hence his comment about the ergo's. I don't believe he was implying that the OP got an F800ST.

    Enjoy the bike, I have one too. They're great bikes and I personally love the stock ergo's which have a bit of a forward lean which balances perfectly when over 50mph or so.

    I just got my F800GT back from the BMW dealership today. My first ride is tomorrow morning.

    The seat seems awful low to me. Are there different seats for the 2016 F800GT? Stock seat and low seat?

    There are. I believe there are stock, high, low and extra low, as well as several aftermarket choices. Keep your eyes open for a second hand one, maybe over on f800riders.org.
