2019 BMW F 850 GS Adventure Revealed at EICMA 2018

  • The 2019 BMW F 850 GS Adventure has been launched at EICMA 2018.

  • It has the same specs as the standard model except for its 23-litre fuel tank.

  • The F 850 GSA is geared towards off-road riding.

The 2019 BMW F 850 GS Adventure made its debut at EICMA 2018 as expected.

Its introduction is hot on the heels of the F 850 GS. BMW Motorrad now have four adventure motorcycles on offer.

The F 850 GS Adventure or just “F 850 GSA,” is the German brand’s assault on the middleweight adventure segment and takes off-road capability to a higher level.

Its engine is the same 853cc, parallel-Twin which also powers its F 850 GS sibling. It produces 95 bhp and 92 NM of torque. However, the GSA’s weight made a jump to 244kg wet and ready to ride. Much of that gain results from the 23-litre fuel tank.

Most riders would probably not complain as the fuel capacity allows for a range of 550km.

The GSA has a larger touring windscreen, adjustable gear shifter and brake lever.

Electronics include ABS and stability control as standard. Standard riding modes are “Road” and “Rain.” Customers may opt for the Riding Modes Pro option which adds “Dynamic,” “Enduro,” and “Enduro Pro” besides dynamic brake light and Dynamic Traction Control. BMW Motorrad also offers electronic suspension. LED headlight is standard.

The 2019 BMW F 850 GS Adventure will be equipped with the 6.5” TFT instrument display.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. 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. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
