New bike, picked up today, will take some back roads home tomorrow
heard they go well
I did a Europe trip with Nick. Nice bloke.
280km trip home, love this bike, cracker of a motor, don’t really need to go over 6000 rpm, quick shifter a bit clunky in 1-3, but didn’t really use it, great clutch
Needs a bigger screen, lots of buffering from the shoulders up, and pegs are too small. Ride Modes are very different, enduro is a lot more responsive, and seems smoother in first. Comfortable, but viby in 6th at 100km/h. Fly by wire throttle takes some getting used to. Quick spin on gravel, no real issues, will probably get bar risers, front end feels planted when standing
Had a look at the new ones today. Certainly gone up in price a fair bit.
Can't find official pricing anywhere but earlier this year all the magazines said the 750 would start at $13,190, which is pretty much the same as the 700 went for.
It looks like the dealers only have fully specced bikes on the floor, and these are selling quickly to meet the pent-up demand.
I was told the F850GS Adventure with all the bells & whistles will be (Feb/Mar 2019) just shy of $26k ride-away in WA.
Base price is correct, but most of the bikes are coming in specced up with all the options. Mine was $19,400 ride away, which included both packages and the TFT. A base model is a 3 month wait.
BMW Australia usually do not bring in base models of these bikes into Australia, they are ordered at two higher spec levels. Price I saw for the 750 was same as above and the 850 around $23,000. Even the new 2019 Scrambler was $22,990.
What are all the options?
If the scrambler in @Cruz 's post above is anything to go by, too many to list here
Was about $4000 for comfort package, dynamic package and TFT
Aprapovic slip on is another $1500, couldn’t see the value in that, you can buy them from the US for $900, or a chinese rip off on ebay for a couple hundred
That is base model Dave. Or you can buy a runout model for $18500. Heaps of expensive accessories available. If only they fitted decent suspension standard instead.
Thanks - yes, there's a fair bit in there that you didn't get with the 700GS
For those who value heated grips and cruise control (and rightly so IMO) $13,600 ride away seems reasonable. What amongst the general opposition (eg MT07 Tracer?) offers better value for money?
Just a little joke...the Scrambler's got "option 719" written on it
“I unpacked it, assembled it, and was the first to ride it, compared to the older version it's mind blowing!”
This is what the dealers technician said about my 750 on Facebook
Older version is a nice long-distance commuter ...
Hopefully just a one off?
They only recalled 1 as there was only 1 in a dealers showroom that was about to be sold. There is a stop sale on them as well for all the ones in warehouses and dealers unsold.
Wouldn't be nice on the freeway
