BMW F 850 GS

OTR

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 Connectivity ex factory option, 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.

Choose your style.
The choice is yours: with the Exclusive style, the F 850 GS in the Pollux metallic matt colour is an elegant eye-catcher. Whereas the Rallye style, with the Light white, Racing Red uni and Lupin blue metallic colours, allows you to give the bike an even sportier accent. Or you can choose the F 850 GS in the basic colour Racing red uni.

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 lineof the motorcycle. From the rear, the front tank right up to the GS-typical 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.

Comfortable riding pleasure.
There's something for every rider type: you can adapt your F 850 GS to perfectly suit your needs – a whole host of seat benches with differing seat heights are available. A low double seat bench and a comfortable seat bench are also available. You can even have the motorcycle's suspension lowered if desired.

The extra kick.
For demanding offroad use, the F 850 GS has cross-spoke wheels with tubeless tyres. Allowing you to reach new destinations, the next level, the next adrenaline kick. At the same time, your departure into unknown terrain is now safer thanks to the "intelligent emergency call" – also known as eCall: in serious cases, the rider triggers the system fitted to the handlebars at the touch of a button in order to get help. Depending on the situation, the eCall is automatically discharged and aids a faster response from the rescue services – wherever you may be.
