The new BMW F 900 GS, F 900 GS Adventure and F 800 GS: The new
premium mid-range touring enduros provide purist riding fun thanks
to even more sophisticated off-road, touring and adventure
With the new F 900 GS, F 900 GS Adventure and F 800 GS BMW Motorrad is significantly boosting its product range of touring enduros for the mid-range. While the new BMW F 800 GS is the ideal bike, especially for entry-level riders, the
BMW F 900 GS Adventure is very well suited for extended adventure trips and for long, demanding tours. All three models have been significantly updated and now offer, among other things, an even higher level of standard equipment in addition to a new drive. The
F 900 GS features many far-reaching innovations. The motorcycle’s range of uses has been considerably expanded thanks to its enhanced off-road qualities combined with a drastic weight reduction of 14 kg compared to the predecessor model making it a particularly sporty F Series model.
Drive with advanced 2-cylinder in-line engine with greater capacity, more output and engine drag torque control.
In the new F 900 GS, F 900 GS Adventure and F 800 GS the advanced 2-cylinder in-line engine introduced in 2018 with the F 850 GS provides increased riding dynamics. The main reason for this is the increased capacity 895 cc (previously 853 cc). With a
270/450 degree firing interval, the engine generates a particularly emotional sound. In the F 900 GS and F 900 GS Adventure it puts out 77 kW (105 hp) and in the F 800 GS 64 kW
(87 hp). In addition to a significant increase in peak power of 10 hp each, the new engines are also characterised by a much fuller torque curve, increased pulling power and faster acceleration.
Two riding modes, ABS Pro and DTC as standard. Riding modes Pro with additional riding modes, riding mode pre-selection and engine drag torque control as optional equipment ex works.
The new GS models in the F series already offer the two riding modes "Rain" and "Road" as standard. Dynamic Traction Control DTC, the cornering-optimised ABS Pro and the dynamic brake light. With "riding modes Pro" available as optional equipment ex works, the dynamic qualities of the new F 900 GS, F 900 GS Adventure and F 800 GS can be exploited even more intensively thanks to additional riding modes, the riding mode pre-selection and the engine drag torque control as well as Dynamic Brake Control DBC.
BMW F 900 GS with new, significantly lighter plastic fuel tank and rear section. New, fully adjustable upside-down telescopic forks on the F 900 GS and
F 900 GS Adventure.
The new F 900 GS, F 900 GS Adventure and F 800 GS rely on a bridge-type frame made of deep-drawn sheet steel parts welded together, which integrates the 2-cylinder in-line engine as a supporting element. The 14.5-litre plastic fuel tank of the new F 900 GS is a completely new development saving 4.5 kg of weight compared to the steel tank of the previous model. The F 900 GS features a completely redesigned rear section which makes it look even more dynamic and save around 2.4 kg of weight. A further 1.7 kg are saved thanks to the rear silencer by Akrapovič. The front wheel on the F 900 GS and
F 900 GS Adventure is guided by new, fully adjustable upside-down telescopic forks by Showa.
New Enduro Pro package for the new F 900 GS and Dynamic ESA for the new
F 900 GS Adventure and the F 800 GS optionally available ex works.
The new F 900 GS can be given even more off-road prowess with the optional equipment ex works Enduro Pro package featuring fully adjustable titanium nitride-coated upside-down telescopic forks, fully adjustable central spring strut as well as handlebar risers and M Endurance chain. The Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) electronic suspension is available as optional equipment for the new F 900 GS Adventure and the
F 800 GS.
New BMW F 900 GS with ergonomics optimised for off-road use, enduro footrests and aluminium side stand. Optimised adjustable gearshift lever and, on the
F 900 GS, a new foot brake lever as well.
The increased off-road qualities of the new F 900 GS are expressed by the ergonomic triangle (handlebar - seat - footrests) optimised for off-road use. Lower footrests in combination with the higher handlebar position and the new design of the fuel tank provide clear advantages, especially when riding standing up on rough terrain.
All three new models already offer an adjustable gearshift lever as standard. In conjunction with an optimised bearing and new gearshift lever kinematics, it was also possible to optimise shifting the six-speed transmission even further. The F 900 GS also features a new foot brake lever in a higher position.
New LED headlight on the BMW F 900 GS. All models feature powerful LED light units.
Compared to the predecessor model, the LED headlight on the new BMW F 900 GS offers a larger low beam opening angle and thus better illumination directly in front of the motorcycle. The new F 900 GS Adventure and the F 800 GS also feature LED headlights as standard. Furthermore, the turn indicator and control lights of all three models also use LED technology.
Connectivity - unrivalled information diversity and functionality in the form of a large, perfectly readable 6.5-inch TFT display. The new BMW F 900 GS comes as standard with multifunction holder to accommodate navigation devices, action cams and more.
The new GS models in the F series already each have a large 6.5-inch TFT display as standard. This applies in particular to the F 800 GS, which previously had an analogue display. Information diversity, quality of presentation and, last but not least, user-friendliness are unrivalled. Phoning, listening to music and navigating while riding is very comfortable. The new BMW F 900 GS is already equipped with a 12 mm holder as standard, which permits action cams or other devices to be mounted. In order to install the BMW Motorrad Connected Ride Navigator or the BMW Motorrad Connected Ride Cradle, the "navigation preparation” option is also required.
BMW F 900 GS with new body dimensions, clear design and colour scheme highlighting its off-road qualities, sportiness and dynamic performance.
The new BMW F 900 GS has been completely redesigned and benefits from a dynamic design that signals increased off-road qualities and sportiness, as well as visually highlighting the 14 kg of lowered weight. One of the key points of the new design is the redesigned plastic fuel tank, which allowed for a much slimmer and ergonomically more favourable design with a capacity of only 0.5 litres less than the previous model. New, close-fitting tank side panels, together with a new radiator trim give the new F 900 GS a sleek, sporty and off-road-oriented look. Off-road qualities, sportiness and dynamic performance are also reflected in the entire rear section, which is significantly narrower and more dynamic than the predecessor model. The dynamic appearance of the new
F 900 GS is further enhanced by the sporty rear silencer by Akrapovič. The new F 900 GS is available as a basic version in Blackstorm metallic, as a Passion model version in São Paulo yellow solid paint and as a GS Trophy version in Lightwhite solid paint/Racing Blue metallic.
New attractive model variants and colour schemes for the
F 900 GS Adventure and F 800 GS.
The new F 900 GS Adventure is available as a basic variant in Blackstorm metallic and as a Ride Pro model variant in matt White Aluminium. The new F 800 GS is available as a basic variant in Lightwhite solid paint, as a Sport model variant in Racing Blue and as a Triple Black version in Blackstorm metallic.
