    BMW F 750 GS – BMW F 850 GS
    BMW F 850 GS Adventure

    BMW have overnight released these images and details on new editions of the F 750 and F 850 GS along with the F 850 GS Adventure.

    The anticipated 40th Anniversary of GS Edition livery does not disappoint and along with the recently completely redesigned engine make the 850 by far the most attractive proposition it has ever been.

    [​IMG]
    BMW F 850 GS and BMW F 850 GS Adventure Edition 40 Years GS
    The BMW F 850 GS and BMW F 850 GS Adventure perfectly combine great road and touring amenity with outstanding off-road characteristics, thanks to their 21-inch front rim, while the more manageable dimensions of the BMW F 750 GS appeal to motorcyclists seeking an introduction to the world of touring enduros. The F 850 and F 750 GS models are expected to arrive in Australia this November while the 850 GS Adventure will not arrive until the first quarter of 2021. Pricing is expected to be similar to current pricing despite the higher specification level of the new models.

    BMW F 850 GS Adventure Style Rallye

    Already a tried and tested concept, the F series is unveiling three variations here further refined by BMW Motorrad for model year 2021 with expanded standard equipment and new optional equipment.

    General changes to the BMW F 750 GS, BMW F 850 GS and BMW F 850 GS Adventure include new tape designs and the respective style designation on the fairing side panels of the style variations.

    Furthermore, all models now have new LED flashing turn indicators as standard and a USB charging device at the front right of the cockpit. ABS Pro and DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) are now also standard, for even more braking and accelerating safety.

    BMW F 850 GS Style Rallye
    As before, the recently updated and heavily improved liquid-cooled 4-valve, 2-cylinder engine with 853 cc capacity, fuel injection and six-speed gearbox in all three models provides the propulsion.

    In the BMW F 750 GS, as before, it generates 57 kW (77 hp) at 7,500 rpm and develops a maximum torque of 83 Nm at 6,000 rpm. The BMW F 850 GS and the BMW F 850 GS Adventure still generate 70 kW (95 hp) at 8,250 rpm and 92 Nm at 6,250 rpm.

    BMW F 750 GS
    The new BMW F 750 GS now steps up in the new basic Light white paintwork with tank centre cover painted in the vehicle colour. The black matt painted rims, black handlebars and seat bench in red/black make for a striking contrast.

    [​IMG]
    BMW F 750 GS Style Sport
    The sports style in San Marino blue metallic is also new for the BMW F 750 GS. A tinted windscreen gives it a sporty touch. In keeping with this, Granite grey metallic rims, silver handlebars as well as a black-grey seat bench and galvanised radiator cowl make a high-quality impression.

    These 800's just aren't getting any cheaper are they?

    Been watching the prices for quite a while now and the low kilometre bikes are only just slightly cheaper than the newer 850's.

    It's bullshit I tell ya. :bluduh

    OK kiddies. Stuck in SA, for who knows how long....? Can’t live without a bike. Got choices, lots. Buy a new/demo T7? 2019/20 500X? Or be ‘sensible’, (?!?!), and pick up something useful and handy 2nd hand. I’m on a 2/1 roster, so won’t be riding it all the time. Mostly road, but will certainly be bringing it up here and going dirt roaring, with appropriate tyres, and probably suspension upgrades.
    Looking at a one owner 2008 F650gs with FSH, immaculate, with useful stuff. Haven’t had a whole lot to do with these jiggers, but the couple I’ve ridden were very appealing. As was a 700. ( Never been able to work out why the fek they weren’t given the full power engines! wtf?)
    Need to know from this incredibly WISE bunch, is there a major, (or minor?) issue I should be freaking out about?
    Comes with some riding gear! Handy, when most of mines at Melbourne airport...:becca

    How many k's? I'd jump on it, but I'm biased because I've got one. Known fuel filter / pump issue, but easily fixed, and top shock bolt problem, again easily fixed. It's got the same or more power than the 800 up to 4k revs, so not an issue. I've got 80k on mine, never a problem.
    And stay away from those T7's, wankers bikes. Hi Paul. :wave

    That's a nice gesture on his behalf - I'm surprised he gave it back. :lol3

    What was his thoughts on the 800 and is he looking for his own now?

    yeah he likes it, he’s also ridden my Tenere and he really liked that too

    he’s a motorcross and enduro racer and never had a big bike before but he wants to buy something that he can commute to the city sometimes and ride on weekends particularly with his brother who has a big BMW background, hence his interest in the F800
