BMW Motorrad India has launched the all-new BMW F 750 GS at 12.20 lakh and BMW F 850 GS for Rs.13.7 lakh (premium travel endures) at the Auto Expo 2018. The motorcycles are available as completely built-up units (CBU) and can be booked at BMW Motorrad dealerships. Deliveries will begin from May 2018 onwards.
The new 853cc parallel-twin engine is tuned to make different power figures in both bikes – 77hp and 83Nm of torque in the F750, and 85hp and 92Nm of torque in the F850. BMW suggests that the engine’s new 270-degree firing order lends it a purposeful engine note, which will be a positive departure from the typically hushed BMW aural package. Another big change comes in the form of a new monocoque frame with new suspension geometry and fuel tank position which has moved from the previous under-seat position to a conventional location behind the bars.
The F750 GS and F850 GS get a new fork (an upside-down 43mm one in the case of the F850 and a 41mm telescopic unit for the F750). Rear suspension duties are handled by an aluminium double-sided swing-arm and a monoshock. BMW’s electronic suspension adjustment (ESA) is optional on either model. Both come with ABS, ASC, and ‘Rain’ and ‘Road’ riding modes as standard. Other optional equipment includes full-LED lighting and a multi-functional instrument cluster.
The all-new BMW F 750 GS and the all-new BMW F 850 GS are all-rounders that excel on every scale, presenting countless opportunities for the riders. These motorcycles are perfect companions for practical purposes in city travel, long unwinding journeys as well as for the times when the rider inside yearns for more challenges. The two models will compete with the Triumph Tiger 800 (and its internationally updated version, soon to arrive in India).
Bike enthusiasts also had an opportunity to preview the most-awaited BMW motorcycles – the BMW G 310 GS and the BMW G310 R – that were unveiled at Auto Expo and will be launched at a later date.
