Revolutionary BMW Adventure Bikes: Unleashing Power and Cutting Weight for 2024!

  • BMW Motorrad has recently unveiled its latest adventure motorcycles: the F900 GS, the F900 GS Adventure, and the F800 GS.
  • These new models boast increased power and reduced weight.
  • The anticipated India launch is scheduled for later this year.

BMW Motorrad has revealed its latest adventure bike lineup, consisting of the F900 GS, the F900 GS Adventure, and the F800 GS. This announcement comes at a time of fierce competition in the 900cc category, with strong contenders from British, Italian, and Japanese manufacturers. In the 2024 update, the German brand has opted for a more subtle overall design for the new F900 GS. The bike’s front end now showcases a rally-inspired look, reminiscent of models like the Yamaha Tenere 700 and the Aprilia Tuareg 660, eschewing its large front beak in favor of a forward-leaning windscreen. The standard enduro-style seat and the exposed white sub-frame contribute to the bike’s rugged appearance.

Under the hood, the engineers have gifted the new F900 GS with a more potent engine, now delivering 105bhp at 8500rpm and a peak torque of 93Nm at 6750rpm. This power boost has been achieved through revised engine mapping. These new BMW adventure bikes come packed with features, including a TFT instrument cluster, LED lighting, keyless ignition, traction control, and multiple riding modes.

One of the most significant improvements lies in the weight reduction department, thanks to a lighter sub-frame and fewer body panels. The bike now tips the scales at 219kgs, shedding 14kgs compared to its predecessor. Ergonomics have also been fine-tuned, with lowered footpegs and slightly adjusted handlebars to enhance off-road friendliness.

The F900 GS Adventure shares the same features and specifications as the F900 GS but offers even more. It boasts an adjustable touring windscreen, a larger 23-litre fuel tank, and a more comfortable seat. Additionally, it comes equipped with different wheels, suspension, crash bars, and saddleboxes as standard. On the other hand, the F800 GS is geared towards road use, featuring smaller front wheels and less travel in the suspension.

BMW India is gearing up to launch these motorcycles in the Indian market later this year. With competitive pricing anticipated, following the brand’s successful pricing strategy with the previous generation, the F900 GS is poised to attract a significant number of enthusiasts.
