BMW Motorrad Australia has announced 2019 prices for its new midsize adventure bikes with a bigger 853cc parallel twin engine.

BMW Motorrad Australia now offers a three-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty on all new models.

BMW says the F 750 GS is “designed for all riders” with a low seat height and “all-round qualities”. It features mag wheels with a 19-inch front.

However, the F 850 GS not only has more power and torque, but BMW says it has more touring and off-road features. They include wire wheels and a 21-inch front.

New F 850 GS and F 750 GS engine

BMW says the engine has a 90-degree crankshaft and a 270/450-degree firing interval with two counterbalance shafts to smooth it out.

A self-amplifying, anti-hopping clutch provides a lighter lever feel and the drop in engine drag torque prevents wheel lock-ups on downshifts.

The six-speed gearbox with secondary drive is now positioned on the left.

Rider aids include  ‘Rain’ and ‘Road’ riding modes, ABS and automatic stability control ensures a high level of safety.

The F 750 GS and F 850 GS can be fitted ex-works optional equipment such as Pro riding modes, dynamic traction control and banking-capable ABS Pro.

New midsize frame

The bridge frame of the new F models is made of deep-drawn, welded components and integrates the engine as a co-supporting element.

BMW claims this improves torsional rigidity and “robustness”.

The fuel tank is back in the traditional position for improved centre of gravity.2018 BMW F 750 GS and F 850 GS midsize

There is also a range of optional equipment including different seat heights, windshields, full LED headlight, Connectivity equipment with TFT display, Keyless Ride, Gear shift assistant Pro, Dynamic ESA and eCall.2018 BMW F 750 GS and F 850 GS midsize
