Introducing the new F 850 GS Adventure.
The Design of the F 850 GS Adventure.
It carries the GS gene with pride, which you can easily see from its family’s typical flyline. The central placement of the tank between rider’s seat and han-dlebar ensures that the wheel load is perfectly distributed as well as a nice, slim tail. Characteristic, mature, and distinctive – and as unique as you are. Show off your personal style with your own F 850 GS Adventure!
The “global player” among the globetrotters.
With it, you long for the endless road and the challenge: the F 850 GS Adventure is at home in the world and that’s exactly what you can notice. With it, you defy wind and weather, are prepared for any terrain and experience the adventures of the world with the greatest possible comfort. Among other things, this is ensured by the large, height-adjustable touring windscreen, the standard comfort rider’s seat and the large 23-litre front tank. For a relaxed ride through wild terrain, your F 850 GS Adventure comes with durable attachments: in addition to the engine protection bar in series or the practical stainless steel luggage rack in preparation for the aluminium top case, the side trim panel is also very robust. Everything made for your tour through the world with this “global player”.
