BMW Motorrad has launched the F 750 GS and F 850 GS model series in India. Prices for the BMW F 750 GS and F 850 GS start from Rs 11.95 lakh and Rs 12.95 lakh respectively. Both prices are ex-showroom (India). The entire model range will be imported and sold as CBUs (Completely Built Units).
The adventure tourers look very similar to their predecessor with only a few subtle changes in design. The front end is characterised by the typical ADV motorcycle beak and new LED headlamps with DRLs.
The fairing is now sharper compared to the earlier models and the previous models had the fuel tank placed under the seat which has now been changed to a conventionally placed fuel-tank.
The BMW F 750 GS is equipped with alloy wheels shod with road-based tyres. The F 850 SG on the other hand comes with spoked wheels and dual-sport tyres. The 850 also comes with knuckle guards, taller windscreen and even fork protectors.
The traction control also comes with terrain-specific riding modes named ‘rain' and ‘road' as a standard feature on all models. The F 850 GS comes with an additional riding mode called ‘Enduro Pro.'
The Pro variants of the motorcycles come with ‘Dynamic' and ‘Enduro' modes as standard. Contrary to what the names suggest, both the 750 as well as the 850 use the same 853cc parallel-twin engine. The difference only lies in the power output of the engine.
While the BMW F 750 GS puts out a maximum power of 75bhp at 7,500rpm, the BMW F 850 GS ups the ante with an output of 93bhp at 8,250rpm. A six-speed gearbox drives the rear wheel via a slipper clutch system.
It features an all-new instrument cluster design with an analogue speedometer and a multi-information display. A major update over the previous model is the new optional 6.5-inch TFT instrument cluster that comes as part of the connectivity package.
It allows the rider to pair a smartphone to the display and make calls, listen to music via bluetooth, access vehicle information and use the navigation function as well.
