BMW Motorrad has officially confirmed the list of products that the two-wheeler brand will display at the 2018 Auto Expo and as we had expected (and reported), it will be launching the new F 750 GS and F 850 in the Indian market.
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.
Both the motorcycles will arrive via the CBU route and will compete against the new Triumph Tiger 800 range. 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.
Moreover, motorcycle enthusiasts will also have an opportunity to preview the most-awaited motorcycles in the Indian market ahead of their launch – the BMW G310 R and the BMW G310 GS which means that you will have to wait for some more time before you can lay your hands on the G310 duo.
Apart from the aforementioned models. BMW Motorrad display at the 2018 Auto Expo will also include the BMW S 1000 RR, the BMW R 1200 GS, the BMW R nineT, the BMW R nineT Scrambler, the BMW R nineT Racer and the BMW K 1600 B.
