After 10 years, BMW’s popular pair of middle-class travel enduros are completely redesigned with more power, sharper design, and added connectivity. Release date set for Spring 2018.

When it comes to discovering the remote corners of the world on 2-wheels, the BMW F 750 GS and F 850 GS have been two of the most popular go-to machines.

Now, since they first debuted back in 2007, these middle-class travel enduros are fully redesigned and reengineered to keep the adventures going – whether it’s highway driving or offroad terrain explorations.

New 2018 GS Features

Power and handling: more power and torque

Powered by a 2-cylinder in-line engine making 77-hp at 7500 rpm, the 2018 F 750 GS now offers more power and torque than the outgoing model. More robust, the F 850 GS cranks out 95-hp at 8250 rpm with 853 cc displacement it shares with the 750 GS.

The look is completely different for 2018, adding more masculine flair that sees full LED headlights including optional LED daytime running lights to ride into the path ahead with confidence.
