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.

    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.
