After almost ten years, BMW Motorrad has now fully redesigned and reengineered its middle-class GS models in line with its objective of creating an ultimate riding machine that is less complicated for all types of conditions.
The new F 750 GS and the F 850 GS are one of the eye-catching models. The former has a low seat height with impressive power output and is cost-effective. The latter offers more power and torque compared to the F 750 GS.
The GS bikes feature a new two-cylinder in-line engine with two counterbalance shafts and a firing interval of 270/450 degrees. Focus was set on reducing fuel consumption levels alongside increasing both power and torque. The 853cc engine is capable of producing 57kW at 7500rpm in the F 750 GS while the F 850 GS can deliver 70kW at 8250 rpm on tap. It is mated to a six-speed gearbox.
It also comes with a self-amplifying, anti-hopping clutch to provide a discernible reduction in the hand clutch operating force
The riding modes of the bikes are the standard riding modes, ‘Road’ and ‘Rain’ and according to BMW, the ABS and ASC ensure plenty of riding enjoyment and enhanced safety as standard.
