What Is It?

The BMW F850GSA is a mid-range off-road 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 outgoing F800GSA there's a new chassis, new 55 cc larger engine making 9 bhp more power, a 15 mm lower seat, more protection and the chain / exhaust have switched sides however it's 12 kg heavier and fuel capacity is down one 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.
