The relatively budget F750 GS is primarily designed for on-road riding with soft off-roading capability. Thus, the motorcycle comes equipped with alloy wheels, instead of wire-spoke units. The F750 GS features a conventional telescopic front suspension to keep the prices low. It even features a more accessible seat height so even shorter riders can enjoy the motorcycle.
The F850 GS, on the other hand, is more premium. It’s also more off-road ready than the F750GS. Thus, the motorcycle comes equipped with wire-spoke wheels that give it more rugged look and capabilities. The F850 GS, unlike the F750 GS, gets upside down telescopic front suspension. Apart from being more off-road ready, the F850 GS packs more power and torque.
Both motorcycles use an 853 cc in-line twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with two counterbalance shafts and a firing interval of 270/450 degrees. The engine on the F750 GS is tuned to deliver 77 hp of maximum power at 7,500 rpm and 83 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. The F850 GS, with the same motor, pushes out 95 hp of maximum power at 8,250 rpm and 92 Nm of peak torque at 6,250 rpm. The motorcycles feature selectable ‘Rain’ and ‘Road’ riding modes. Rider aids on the motorcycles include BMW Motorrad ABS and the ASC (Automatic Stability Control).
