BMW has recently updated its middleweight adventure bike portfolio. It replaces the F750 and F850 models with the new F800 and F900 GS series, as well as the adventure-focused F900GS Adventure. These new additions have larger engines and several enhancements, signifying a significant advancement in BMW’s adventure motorcycle portfolio. The most noticeable modification is an increase in engine capacity, with all three models increasing from 853cc to 895cc. While this may appear to be a bit perplexing, it is worth noting that the original F750 was also 853cc, but tuned differently.

This increased capacity translates into increased power from the bikes. The entry-level F800GS now produces 87 horsepower at 6750 rpm, a significant increase over the previous F750’s 76.4 bhp. Meanwhile, the two F900GS models generate 105 horsepower at 8500 rpm, compared to 84 bhp on the original F850. However, the engine is only one component of the puzzle. BMW has crammed these bikes with amenities and enhancements. The entry-level F800GS includes a 6.5-inch TFT screen, an enhanced LED headlamp, heated grips, hand guards, a top-case carrier, and cosmetic upgrades. The F800GS is slated to arrive at dealerships in early 2024, with a starting price of £9,995.
For those looking for more features, the F900GS has lost 14kg in weight thanks to a lighter plastic fuel tank and swingarm. This weight loss improves its agility and handling. The F900GS also has new aesthetics, an Akrapovic sports exhaust as standard, fully adjustable inverted telescopic front forks, enhanced LED lighting, and heated grips with hand protection. The F900GS is priced at £11,995 in the UK and will be available in dealerships in early 2024. However, BMW has not announced when these motorcycles will be available in India.
