Overview[edit]

The unknown is exactly what tantalizes you to get up, get out and go. Far, far away! And not just on paved roads. With the BMW F 850 GS Adventure, you’ll conquer new terrain, are ready for new adventures and are ready to ride – wherever you go. This “travel enduro” is made for real explorers. For people who think no destination is too far and no distance too remote. Experience the world with a companion that’s so reliable, robust and powerful that it can even keep up with your curiosity. Introducing the new F 850 GS Adventure. For more than ten years, the GS models in the BMW Motorrad F series have embodied the premium range in the middle class travel and adventure enduro segment. High-level touring capability, absolute long-distance suitability, sporty dynamic riding and superior offroad qualities are its outstanding strengths. Following the newly developed BMW F 750 GS and F 850 GS presented in autumn 2017, the new F 850 GS Adventure now expands the premium BMW Motorrad range in this segment. Based on the dynamic and offroad oriented character of the F 850 GS, the new Adventure ideally unites agility and touring capability as well as increased offroad competence and outstanding long-distance qualities. Like the legendary boxer-engined BMW GS Adventure role models, the new F 850 GS Adventures now offers dedicated travel enduro riders, offroad oriented touring riders and globetrotters the perfect companion in the middle class for exploring the remote corners of the planet by motorcycle.


New, powerful and refined 2-cylinder in-line engine with 90 degree crankpin offset and 270/450 degree ignition spacing. The developers achieved a powerful and emotionally appealing sound by employing a crankshaft with a 90 degree crankpin offset and 270/450 degree ignition spacing. Vibrations are absorbed by the new engine’s two counterbalance shafts. A self-amplifying, anti-hopping clutch not only provides a discernible reduction in the hand clutch operating force but also enhances safety on the road through the drop in engine drag torque. Power transmission to the rear wheel comes from the six-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 available as optional equipment. The new F850 GS Adventure addresses individual rider requirements by offering “Rain” and “Road” riding modes as standard, while the combination of BMW Motorrad ABS and the ASC automatic stability control ensure a high level of safety. Thanks to the standard dynamic brake light, traffic behind the rider is made even more aware of the braking motorcycle. The F 850 GS Adventure 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 sheet steel bridge frame, optimized suspension geometry and new positioning of the 23-litre fuel tank. The bridge frame of the new F 850 GS Adventure 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 and the steering head, for optimized packaging and an improved centre of gravity. In the F 850 GS Adventure it holds 23 liters and permits a range of 550 kilometres and more in combination with the model’s low fuel consumption. Sharper, even more masculine Adventure design, optimized ergonomics and increased globetrotter suitability. New, more masculine body design emphasises the F 850 GS Adventure’s globetrotter suitability. A larger windshield, which can be adjusted in two stages, as well as hand protectors provide increased wind and weather protection. Wide enduro footrests, adjustable shift and foot brake levers as well as engine protection bars and a stainless steel luggage rack round off the F 850 GS Adventure’s standard equipment. In addition to the basic version, the new F 850 GS Adventure is available in Exclusive and Rallye style variations. Unique range of optional equipment and accessories. The new F 850 GS Adventure is being launched with a range of equipment options that is unique for the middle class. Whether different seat heights, such as the seat bench for two (corresponds to standard F 850 GS seat bench), the case holder for a the aluminum cases and trim panels, the new full LED headlight as well as the LED additional headlight, the Connectivity equipment with 6.5 inch full color TFT display or the intelligent emergency eCall, the list of fascinating features for maximising riding enjoyment and enjoying the thrill of the road is now virtually inexhaustible for middle class touring enduro motorcycles.
