The New 2019 BMW F 850 GS

Premium middle-class travel enduros with strong characters.

As before, the GS abbreviation again represents a perfect synthesis of touring and long-distance capability combined with sporty dynamics and supreme offroad performance. In short: A BMW GS is the perfect companion when it comes to discovering remote corners of the world by motorcycle. After around ten years of consistent model development,BMW Motorrad has now fully redesigned and re-engineered its middle-class GS models in line with its objective of creating an ultimate riding machine that is even more uncomplicated and carefree,whether used for sport-oriented road riding, on tour complete with luggage and a passenger, or on an adventure trip into off-road terrain.

Even more so than their predecessor model, the new F 850 GS is targeted squarely its’ respective clientele. Opposite this is the new F 850 GS, which besides offering more power and torque, features even more distinctive touring characteristics coupled with supreme offroad ability.

Powerful, new 2-cylinder in-line engine with two counterbalance shafts and a firing interval of 270/450 degrees for optimised smoothness and emotional sound.

The main development focus was to create an increase in both power and torque. In addition, special attention was given to reducing fuel consumption levels. Displacement is 853 cc and the new F 850 GS generates 70 kW (95 hp) at 8250 rpm which translates to a supreme level of engine power.

The developers achieved a powerful and emotionally appealing sound by employing a crankshaft with a 90 degree journal offset and a 270/450 degree firing interval. Unwanted vibrations are absorbed by the new engine’s two counterbalance shafts. A self-amplifying, anti-hopping clutch provides a discernible reduction in the hand clutch operating force while the drop in engine drag torque also enhances safety on the road. Power transmission to the rear wheel comes from the 6-speed gearbox with secondary drive that is now positioned on the left-hand side.

The riding modes ‘Road’ and ‘Rain’ plus ABS and ASC ensure plenty of riding enjoyment and enhanced safety as standard. Pro riding modes are available as optional equipment.

The F 850 GS can be fitted ex works with optional equipment, such as Pro riding modes and in turn the additional ‘Dynamic’, ‘Enduro’ and ‘Enduro Pro’ riding modes as well as the DTC dynamic traction control and banking capable ABS Pro.

New steel bridge frame in monocoque construction, optimised suspension geometry and new fuel tank position.

The bridge frame of the new GS models in the F series is made of deep-drawn, welded components. It integrates the 2-cylinder in-line engine as a co-supporting element and offers benefits in terms of torsional rigidity and robustness. The fuel tank has been placed in the classic position between the seat bench and the steering head, for optimised packaging and an improved centre of gravity.

The F 750 GS and F 850 GS also feature a completely new look, which benefits from a more dynamic and masculine design. The new LED headlight gives the front view an especially striking visusal appeal. In addition to the basic version, the new F models are also available in Exclusive style variations. The Rallye style variant is exclusive to the new F 850 GS and places particular emphasis on its offroad capabilities.
