(3 months ago)
NOIDA, India, February 14: BMW Motorrad India has launched the all-new BMW F 750 GS and the all-new BMW F 850 GS today in India at the Auto Expo 2018.
The all-new BMW F 750 GS and the all-new BMW F 850 GS will be available as Completely Built-up Units (CBU) and can be booked at BMW Motorrad dealerships from today onwards. Deliveries will begin from May 2018 onwards.
Mr. Timo Resch, Vice President - Marketing and Sales, BMW Motorrad, said, "For more than ten years, GS models of the F series have stood for premium riding enjoyment with typical BMW Motorrad features in the mid-class adventure segment. GS represents a perfect synthesis of touring and long-distance capability combined with sporty dynamics and supreme off-road performance. BMW Motorrad has now fully-redesigned and reengineered its mid-class GS models in line with its objective of creating riding machines that are even more uncomplicated and carefree."
The all-new BMW F 750 GS is designed for riders who prefer the sensation and conceptual design of a travel enduro in combination with a low seat height, copious power availability, and powerful all-round qualities. The all-new BMW F 850 GS offers more power and torque, featuring even more distinctive touring characteristics coupled with supreme off-road ability.
Mr. Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India, said, "BMW Motorrad has now launched its success formula in a more distinctive form. Premium travel enduros, 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. We are confident that these two exciting products from BMW Motorrad will appeal to the Indian motorcycle enthusiasts with high expectations who want their machines to fulfill a variety of roles. These motorcycles are perfect companions for practical purposes in city travel, long unwinding journeys as well as the times when the rider inside yearns for more challenges."

The all-new BMW F 750 GS and the all-new BMW F 850 GS feature a completely new look, which benefits from a more dynamic and masculine design. The design with its iconic features such as the asymmetric headlight and the GS-typical flyline make it immediately clear that they belong to the BMW Motorrad GS family. The characteristic flyline emanates from the front GS 'beak' (upper wheel cover) over and past the fuel tank and seat bench to the functionally designed and now considerably slimmer rear. The optional LED headlights give an even sharper gaze to the agile appearance.
The newly-developed bridge frame is made of deep-drawn, welded components and integrates the engine as a co-supporting element to offer benefits in terms of torsional rigidity and robustness. As is typical for enduros, the all-new BMW F 750 GS and the all-new BMW F 850 GS feature generous spring travel distances and large ground clearance. Original BMW Motorrad Main Stand is offered as standard on both motorcycles.
Both models feature the powerful 2-cylinder in-line engine with a displacement of 853 cc. The all-new BMW F 750 GS produces a power output of 57 kW (77 hp) at 7500 rpm for dynamic performance. The all-new BMW F 850 GS generates 70 kW (95 hp) at 8250 rpm to deliver supreme level of engine power. An extremely powerful and emotional sound is produced by a crankshaft journal offset of 90 degrees and firing interval of 270/450 degrees.
The newly-engineered 6-speed gearbox transfers the torque with an optimised transmission ratio. Power transmission via the self-amplifying anti-hopping clutch allows reduced operating force and also leads to lesser engine drag torque, increasing riding safety - particularly in the case of braking manoeuvres performed while changing down in gear. The standard Cruise Control offered on both motorcycles enables pronounced comfort for long rides. For faster gear shifting without the clutch, BMW Motorrad now offers the optional Gear shift assistant Pro that permits perfect acceleration with virtually no interruption.
The all-new BMW F 750 GS and the all-new BMW F 850 GS come with two riding modes 'Rain' and 'Road', to adapt to varied road conditions. Riders can choose optional riding modes - 'Dynamic', 'Enduro' and 'Enduro Pro' along with DTC dynamic traction control and the banking capable ABS Pro.
Both motorcycles are equipped with a completely new instrument cluster design, consisting an analogue speedometer and multifunctional display. Fast and clear information is available with the optional equipment known as Connectivity, with a 6.5 inch full-colour TFT display. Integrating operation via the BMW Motorrad multi-controller, it gives the rider quick access to vehicle and connectivity functions. Phone and media functions can be used without having to install an app. The rider can easily make telephone calls and enjoy listening to music with Bluetooth connection. In addition, the BMW Motorrad Connected app offers everyday-suitable and practice-oriented arrow navigation directly via the TFT display.
