BMW F750 GS & F850 GS revealed at EICMA 2017. BMW has fully redesigned its middleweight adventure bikes, bringing touring, long-distance capability, sporty dynamics, and excellent offroad performance together.
Despite the difference in their names, BMW has stuck with its practice of making the two models with the same capacity. But both have had a capacity increase. Both the bikes are now 853cc, up from the 798cc of their previous models, the F700 GS and F800 GS respectively.
In addition to the increase in capacity, both the adventure tourer receive a hike in power output as well, from 75bhp to 77bhp for the F750 GS and 85bhp to 95bhp for the F850 GS. Torque is up as well, from 81Nm to 83Nm for the F750 GS and 83Nm to 92Nm for the F850 GS.
Both the motorcycles feature a new steel monocoque frame housing the parallel-twin engine. The bikes also receive a new front fork: an upside-down 43mm in the 850 and 41mm in the 750. At the rear, the F GS series get an aluminium double-sided swing-arm and shock, with BMW's ‘ESA' electronic suspension adjustment optional.
BMW's ‘ASC' traction control system is standard, as is ABS with standard riding modes are ‘Rain' and ‘Road.' One can opt for more as a further option. Other options include a TFT ‘Connectivity' dash, along with BMW's ‘intelligent emergency call function,' which can automatically ask help in the event of an accident.
The F750 GS has cast aluminium wheels with a 19-inch front while the F850 GS has wire-spoked ones with a 21-inch front, for more off-road potential in common to its previous models. Other changes include the fuel tank, which has been repositioned for improved center-of-gravity.
Braking duties are carried out by two-piston floating calipers on 305mm twin discs at the front, while the rear is a single-piston floating caliper on a 265mm disc.
BMW has updated the F GS series with a retuned suspension and other rider comforts like repositioning the fuel tank. This will lead to better ride and handling of the F GS series.
