F 850 GS

The F 850 GS: Adventure in the blood.

You live for the challenge. Where others turn back, you ride on. Overcome boundaries. Obstacles are transformed into possibilities. Adventure flows through your veins. Atop the F 850 GS, you will easily master the offroad track thanks to the 21 inch front tyre. What matters is that your attitude and curiosity spur you on – regardless of how far you want to travel with the F 850 GS. And regardless of whether you take it through the mud: With the ex factory option Connectivity, you have access to the navigation, telephone, media and vehicle-relevant data at all times. Clear and concise on a 6.5 inch TFT-display – without any distractions. Giving you more time for what is important. And allowing you to discover what lies over the horizon.

Even more GS.

A strong look: you and your F 850 GS with the characteristic flyline. When it comes to design, the sense of adventure can be felt on every surface, in every corner and line of the motorcycle. From the rear, the front tank right up to the LED headlamps, whose daytime running lights are reminding of a tilted tuning fork and are available as an optional equipment, the design elements are trimmed to offroad, while you are attuned to unique tours from head to toe. The galvanised radiator blind for the Rallye and Exclusive styles give you a cool appearance both on the road and offroad.

The inner drive.

Curiosity and a thirst for discovery are your drive. The twin-cylinder in-line engine, with its 70 kW (95 HP), supports you in every endeavour – its strengths are a high torque and zippy character. The strong sound of the engine impresses whilst working economically and delivering an impressive performance at all times. Discover the unknown with the F 850 GS!

In your element.

Your head is free, your gaze focused on the road ahead. Almost instinctively you steer, shift and brake the F 850 GS – an inimitable handling: you are in your element, fully focussed on your adventure. And thanks to the GS-typical ergonomics, you ride upright and confidently, meaning you always want to go on.

Exclusive style.

Are you a strong character? Then your F 850 GS should certainly have unforgettable features. The Exclusive style, besides the Pollux metallic matt colour, offers a gold-anodised suspension fork and a galvanised radiator trim. Both highlight the high quality of the motorcycle. Hand protectors and a black-grey seat bench skilfully round off the style.

Rallye style.

Do you fancy a sporty look and are daring offroad? The Rallye style gives you even more dynamism when atop your F 850 GS, because it sets striking accents with its gold-anodised rims, black red seat bench, hand protectors and galvanised radiator trim – this also involves the exclusive paintwork from the Lightwhite uni, Racing red uni and Lupin blue metallic colours.
