BMW Motorrad celebrates 40 years of the GS — the iconic model that started the adventure bike segment — with new color schemes and standard features for the F series of adventure bikes.
Offering road and touring suitability with outstanding off-road characteristics in smaller dimensions, BMW Motorrad updates the F-series line with new color schemes, expanded standard equipment and new optional equipment.
The new BMW F 750 GS now comes in white paintwork with the tank center cover painted in the vehicle color. The black matt painted rims, black handlebars, and seat bench in red/black make for a striking contrast.
The Sports Style variant in San Marino Blue metallic is also new for the BMW F 750 GS. A tinted windscreen gives it a sporty touch. In keeping with this, Granite grey metallic rims, silver handlebars as well as a black-grey seat bench and galvanized radiator cowl make a high-quality impression.
Commemorating the 40th GS anniversary is the F 750 GS 40 Years GS Edition. It has the “40 Years GS” logo on the fairing side panels. Its yellow hand protector bars and seat bench in black/yellow with GS logo pay tribute to an icon from 40 years of GS history: the BMW R 100 GS. Black matt painted rims, silver handlebars, and a galvanized radiator cowl round off this exclusive anniversary appearance.
F 850 GS
On the other hand, the entry level BMW F 850 GS can be had in basic racing red or silver. The basic F 850 GS comes with hand-protector bars, black fixed fork tubes and black-red seat bench emphasizes its sporty character. The gold rims and galvanized radiator cowl accentuate its luxury feel.
In Rallye Style trim, it's offered in Racing Blue or Kalamata metallic matt (above) color.
The “40 Years GS Edition” of the BMW F 850 GS celebrates the 40th anniversary of the BMW GS models in Black storm metallic with “40 Years GS” logo on the fairing side panels. An exclusive yellow hand-protector bars, gold rims and a seat bench in black/yellow with GS logo also ensure a high level of recognition. Black fixed fork tubes and a galvanized radiator cowl are further hallmarks of this anniversary edition.
F 850 GS Adventure
The standard equipment of the BMW F 850 GS has been further enhanced with a windscreen adjustment mechanism and a TFT display including convenient Connectivity functions.
F 850 GS Adventure 40th Anniversary Edition
Further, the F 850 GS Adventure is also available in the 40th anniversary edition, with the exquisite “40 Years GS” logo and yellow hand-protector bars are distinctive hallmarks of the anniversary GS in Black storm metallic paintwork. Black-coated fixed fork tubes, gold rims, and a black/yellow upholstered seat bench for two with 860 mm seat height round off the BMW F 850 Adventure’s tribute to the GS family’s 40th anniversary. A TFT display including convenient Connectivity functions is now also a standard onboard feature.
New and expanded optional equipment
The new BMW F 750 GS, BMW F 850 GS, and BMW F 850 GS Adventure all feature new components of the Pro riding modes optional equipment. Thus, as in the GS models with boxer engines, a reworked throttle response in DYNAMIC riding mode now ensures even more dynamics and driving enjoyment.
Furthermore, dynamic engine brake control and Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) now feature in Pro riding modes. Other new Pro riding mode features include the preselection of up to four riding modes for the button assignment on the right handlebar controls (though only in conjunction with the Connectivity optional equipment in the BMW F 750 GS).
An extra-low seat bench as well as a modified lowered suspension will be available as optional equipment for all three models in the future ensuring even better ground accessibility when stationary.
Original BMW Motorrad Accessories now supply a holder for the BMW F 850 GS and BMW F 850 GS Adventure for mounting the BMW Motorrad Navigator above the standard TFT display, which is beneficial when the driver is stationary offroad. This holder was previously reserved exclusively for GS trophy machines and deployment vehicles. The ex works "Preparation for navigation device" optional equipment is still available for positioning on the handlebar clamp as before.
Since completely switching off the ABS will no longer be permissible under legal homologation regulations in the future, the Enduro and Enduro Pro riding modes provide suitably adapted controls for this purpose. The ABS function can still be switched off on the rear wheel in the Enduro Pro riding mode (BMW F 850 GS and BMW F 850 GS Adventure only).
The HP logo will be omitted in the future in all optional equipment scopes and Original BMW Motorrad Accessories. The sports silencer for the BMW F 750 GS will only be provided via Original BMW Motorrad Accessories.
