The new 2019 BMW F 850 GS Adventure was launched in India yesterday at a price of INR 15.40 Lakh, equivalent to RM 91,318.15.

BMW had built the new F 850 GS series with more refinements in terms of styling, engine performance, comfort, chassis dynamics and electronics over its F 800 GS predecessor. The same updates are brought over to the Adventure version, called the F 850 GS Adventure or just F 850 GSA.

Setting it apart from the F 850 GS, the F 850 GS Adventure (or just GSA) carries features for more serious adventure and off-road riding. First and foremost is the “extended” fuel tank which has a 23-liter capacity compared to the 15-liter tank on the GS. Other features are crash protection bars, aluminium engine bash plate and Comfort Seat as standard. The GSA also features the new TFT screen of the GS.

The additions add 15 kg to the GS’s weight to a total of 244 kg.

The engine is the same 853cc, parallel-Twin with 270ocrankshaft, which produces 95 hp at 8,250 RPM and 92 Nm of torque at 6,250  The 270ocrank mimics the firing order of a 90oV-Twin for a better spread of power and torque throughout the rev range. It has lesser vibration that the previous 360o-crank engine in the F 800 GS, too.

The 2019 BMW F 850 GS Adventure ought to arrive in Malaysia soon, so stay tuned.

He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist.
