New BMW F850GS and F750GS Announced at EICMA

Recommended Posts

Ever since their debut in 2007, the F-Series BMW GS models have stood for premium riding enjoyment with typical ‘Made by BMW Motorrad’ features, in the middle-class Adventure segment. After roughly ten years of consistent model development, BMW Motorrad has fully reengineered these models and now more than ever, the new BMW F850GS and F750GS are targeted toward a specific rider type.

Accordingly, BMW states the F750GS is aimed for riders who prefer the sensation and design of a travel enduro in combination with a low seat h, ample power, high cost-effectiveness, and excellent versatility. Opposite this is the new F850GS, which besides offering more power and torque, features even more distinctive touring characteristics coupled with optimized off-road capabilities.

New Powerful In-Line Twin Engine

The main development focus of the new F Series line was to create an increase in both power and torque. In addition, special attention was given to reducing fuel consumption levels. Both models utilize the same 853cc inline twin motor (compared with 798 cc in the previous models). Power output of 77 HP (57 kW) at 7500 rpm and 61.2 ft-lbs at 6000 rpm generated by the F750GS is more than adequate for most situations. While the F850GS unleashes the full power potential of the platform, generating 95 HP (70 kW) at 8250 rpm and 67.9 ft-lbs at 6250 rpm.

Developers also achieved a soulful sounding exhaust note by employing a crankshaft with a 90 degree journal offset and a 270/450 degree firing interval. Unwanted vibrations are absorbed by the new engine’s two counterbalance shafts. A self-amplifying, anti-hopping clutch provides a discernible reduction in the hand clutch operating force while the drop in engine drag torque also enhances safety on the road. Power transmission to the rear wheel comes from the 6-speed gearbox with chain drive that is now positioned on the left-hand side.

Advanced Electronics

The new GS models address individual rider requirements by offering ‘Rain’ and ‘Road’ riding modes, while the combination of BMW Motorrad ABS and the ASC automatic stability control ensures a high level of safety. The F850GS and F750GS can be fitted with optional equipment, such as Pro riding modes and in turn the additional ‘Dynamic’, ‘Enduro’ and ‘Enduro Pro’ riding modes (the latter only available in the F850GS) as well as the DTC dynamic traction control and lean-angle sensing ABS Pro.

Improved Chassis Design

The bridge frame of the new GS models in the F series is made of deep-drawn, welded components. It integrates the 2-cylinder in-line engine as a stressed member and offers benefits in terms of torsional rigidity and robustness. The fuel tank has been placed in the classic position between the seat bench and the steering head, for optimized packaging and an improved center of gravity.

New Sharper GS Styling

The F750GS and F850GS also feature a completely new look with a more dynamic and masculine design. In addition to the basic version, the new F models are also available in Exclusive style variations. The Rallye style variant is exclusive to the new F850GS and places particular emphasis on its off-road capabilities.

Optional equipment and BMW Motorrad Accessories

The new GS models of the F series are being launched with a range of equipment options that is impressive for the middleweight Adventure segment. Be it the different seat hs and windshields, the new full LED headlight, the optional Connectivity equipment with TFT display or eCall, the list of fascinating features with which owners can maximize their riding enjoyment and safety as well as experience the thrill of the road, is now better than ever.
