The all-new BMW F 750 GS and F 850 GS motorcycles, which were unveiled at the 2017 EICMA motorcycle show, are reportedly heading to India. Latest reports suggest that the BMW Motorrad’s middleweight adventure duo will reach Indian shores at the 2018 Auto Expo in Delhi.
Both the motorcycles will reportedly arrive via the CBU route and will be the most affordable products in BMW Motorrad’s India product portfolio. The new motorcycles will compete against the new Triumph Tiger 800 range and thus we expect the prices for the BMW F 750 GS to hover around INR 11 lakh-12 lakh while the F 850 GS may arrive in the INR 12 lakh-13 lakh range.
The new F 750 GS and F 850 GS are targeted squarely at their respective clientele. The F 750 GS is designed for all riders who prefer the sensation and conceptual design of a travel enduro in combination with a low seat height, abundant power, high cost-effectiveness, and powerful all-round qualities. On the other hand is the new F 850 GS, which besides offering more power and torque, features even more distinctive touring characteristics coupled with supreme off-road ability.
Powering both motorcycles is a new 853 cc twin-cylinder in-line engine with two counterbalance shafts and a firing interval of 270/450 degrees. Power output for the F 750 GS is rated at 77 hp at 7500 rpm, while for the new F 850 GS, the motor pushes out 95 hp at 8250 rpm. The developers achieved a powerful and emotionally appealing sound by employing a crankshaft with a 90 degree journal offset and a 270/450 degree firing interval.
We’re yet to hear an official announcement from the two-wheeler arm of the German manufacturer. We’ll keep you posted with more updates as and when they’re available. Meanwhile, let us know your views about the (possibly) upcoming BMW F750 GS And F850 GS through the comments section below.
