This F850 GS bike weighs 233 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 15 liters.

The BMW F850 GS Adventure, like its name suggests, is based on the F850 GS. And the Adventure suffix is not there for branding purposes. It gets more features that makes it off-road ready.

The F850 GS Adventure follows a styling similar to the F850 GS although with redesigned bodywork. The front ‘beak’ is wider and the bike also sports wind deflectors, a tall-windscreen, redesigned radiator shrouds along with a larger luggage rack and engine guard.

The motorcycle rides on spoke wheels; a 21-inch front and 17-inch rear shod with dual-purpose rubber. The suspension hardware on the F850 GS Adventure has been tuned to offer more travel. While the inverted forks have 230mm of travel, the monoshock at the rear offer 215mm of suspension travel. There is no difference in terms of powertrain and the F850 GS Adventure is powered by the same 853cc, liquid-cooled parallel-twin motor as the F850 GS. This unit churns out 95bhp of power and 92Nm of torque and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox.

As for competition, the BMW F850 GS Adventure competes against the Triumph Tiger 900 Rally and the Honda Africa Twin in India.

BikeWale’s Take

The BMW F850 GS is a near-perfect adventure tourer which makes its premium price tag look justified. While the worst of terrains can be conquered on it with ease, it can also be a great companion while munching miles. That is courtesy the bike’s potent motor, premium set of hardware and a long list of electronic aids.
