What Is It?

The BMW F850GS is a mid-range adventure bike and is powered by a Euro 4 compliant liquid cooled 853 cc parallel twin engine, producing 93.9 bhp at 8,250 rpm and maximum torque at 6,250 rpm.

Compared to the 2008-2017 F800GS there's a new chassis, new 55 cc larger engine making 9 bhp more power, the seat height is 20 mm lower and the chain / exhaust have switched sides however it's 12 kg heavier and fuel capacity is down 1 litre.

Notably the fuel tank is now in the usual position, rather than under the seat, to help the front / rear weight distribution. The wire spoked 21" front wheel takes a 90/90 tyre and the rear 17" a 150/70.

  • Exclusive: Gold fork, hand guards, radiator cover

  • 2018-2020: Red/silver, blue/silver (Exclusive), white/blue/red (Rallye)

Up And Down The Range

BMW's more road focused £7,950 F750GS is essentially the same bike but with cast wheels, a smaller 19" at the front, smaller standard fork, lower seat, less suspension travel and the engine is restricted to 76 bhp. It doesn't get the option of the off-road knobbly tyres or the Enduro Pro riding mode.


2018: Dynamic brake light now standard.
