F 850 GS


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.

Even More GS.

The F 850 GS with its characteristic flyline is an excitingly aspirational look. When it comes to design, the sense of adventure is immediate as you look over all of the  visual lines of 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.
