Adventure in the Blood.

You live for the challenge. Where others turn back, you ride on. 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 and regardless of the terrain. 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 to enjoy the things you love like making your life a ride and allowing you to discover what lies over the horizon.

Connectivity via a TFT Display.

The BMW F 850 GS – with optional Connectivity:- allows you to connect your smartphone to the F 850 GS via Bluetooth and operate a wide range of innovative functions using the intuitive multi-controller on the handlebars. These are then displayed on the 6.5 inch TFT-display. The turn-by-turn navigation of Connectivity guides you via a remarkably clear presentation, directly on the display. In connection with the BMW Motorrad communication system, telephoning is child's play – be it accepting calls or making them yourself. Because by connecting your smartphone to the multi-controller, you can even access your contact list and select a contact. Thanks to the communication system, you can even get music from your smartphone and play it while riding. Always intuitive and without distraction – ensuring you never lose focus.
