To give you a quick recap, the BMW F 750 GS is the lower-spec model among the three motorcycles listed above. The road-biased setup brings alloy wheels, conventional (right-side up) telescopic forks and a relatively lower power output numbers than the F 850 range. The 853 cc, inline two-cylinder, water-cooled, eight-valve (four valves per cylinder), DOHC engine on the F 750 GS is tuned to produce 77 hp of maximum power at 7,500 rpm and 83 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm.
The off-road biased F 850 GS and the F 850 GSA also pack tubeless tyre compatible cross-spoke wheels, inverted front forks and relatively higher output numbers than the F 750 GS. The same 853 cc motor makes 95 hp of peak power at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 92 Nm at 6,250 rpm on the F 850 GS and the F 850 GSA.
Unlike the F 750 GS and the F 850 GS, the F 850 GSA is available in a single variant. Standard equipment on the INR 15,40,000 worth adventure tourer includes LED headlamp with LED daytime riding light, LED turn indicators, low double seat, wide enduro footrests, engine skid-plate cruise control, adjustable shift and foot brake levers and centre stand.
The details about the F 750 GS and F 850 GS’s successor are scarce as the Bavarian brand did not make an announcement about the updated models at the 2019 EICMA show. The company, however, revealed the new F 900 R and the F 900 XR that come with a Euro-V compliant engine, and we could see the same motor power (although in a different tuning) the updated middleweight GS range.
