Any F800 would be belt drive because the S and ST are already that way. You know that BMW will seek commonality to maximize the return on investment.
I'd be shocked if any GS version of the F800 was produced with a belt drive. I agree they aim for commonality, but understand the trade offs (reliability of a belt drive in off road applications).

I see the Buell Ulysses uses a belt drive, but I guess I think BMW makes better bikes
