As with any motorcycle, the sound made by the two-wheeled machines is very important. BMW promises “a powerful and emotionally appealing sound” thanks to the use of a crankshaft with a 90 degree journal offset and a 270/450 degree firing interval.
Aside for the new engines, the revised F series uses a new steel bridge frame, with the fuel tank placed as usual between the seat bench and the steering head. There is also a new telescopic fork and a swinging arm with central spring strut to allow for more sensitive response.
As standard, the new F Series will be offered, with several safety features, including ABS, ASC and Rain and Road riding modes. Optionally, riders can choose electronic suspension adjustment and multi-functional instrument cluster and 6.5 inch full-color TFT display.
“The F 750 GS is designed for all riders who prefer the sensation and conceptual design of a travel enduro in combination with a low seat height, copious power availability, high cost-effectiveness, and powerful all-round qualities,” says BMW.
“Opposite this is the new F 850 GS, which besides offering more power and torque, features even more distinctive touring characteristics coupled with supreme off road ability.”
Prices or availability for the new F series models have not been announced.
