With the Auto Expo 2018 just around the corner, bike and car makers are readying their products for unveils, showcase and even launches. Among the most prominent launches are the motorcycles from BMW Motorrad. The BMW F 750 GS and F 850 GS India launch is scheduled at India's largest auto show, the Auto Expo 2018.
Both the F 750 GS and the F 850 GS share a new 853cc parallel twin engine, but with a different state of tunes. BMW Motorrad says the adventure motorcycles are entirely different in characteristics and personality. The design of the bikes is inspired by its elder sibling the R 1200 GS.
The middle-weight adventure tourers get a new design, a new monocoque frame, and new suspension compared to the previous models. They are compact and lightweight and will offer an alternative to the bigger adventure bikes in the market currently in India.
The most prominent changes to the bikes are the new monocoque frame with new suspension geometry and fuel tank position which is now moved behind the handlebar rather than the under seat position. The BMW F 750 GS and the F 850 GS receive new 41mm telescopic front forks and 43mm upside down unit respectively.
At the rear, the suspension duties are carried out by mono shock setup for both the bikes. BMW also offers electronic suspension adjustment (ESA) as an option. Both the bikes are equipped with multiple riding modes, ABS and ASC as standard. Other optional features include multi-function instrument cluster and LED lightings.
The 853cc unit produces 77bhp and 83Nm of torque on the BMW F 750 GS, while it develops 85bhp and 92Nm of torque on the F 850 GS. While the F 750 GS gets alloy wheels, the F 850 GS receives spoked wire wheels.
Thoughts About The BMW F 750 GS & F 850 GS India Launch At Auto Expo 2018
Both the BMW F 750 GS and the F 850 GS will be the most affordable adventure tourer from BMW Motorrad's product lineup in India. With adventure motorcycling in India gaining unprecedented popularity, BMW Motorrad will indeed make the most of it by offering the best motorcycles for the buyer.
As for the pricing, the BMW F 750 GS and the F 850 GS will be brought to India via the Completely Built Unit (CBU) route; prices are expected to be slightly higher due to import duties. We expect BMW to price the motorcycles in the range of Rs 15 lakh.
