Pune: BMW Motorrad, the premium motorcycle arm of German luxury car maker BMW Group, on Tuesday expanded its bike range with the launch of the all-new BMW F850 GS Adventure bike, priced at Rs 15.40 lakh at pan India showroom to boost sale in Asia's third biggest economy.

This new long-distance touring enduro motorcycle was first unveiled at the 2018 EICMA show in Milan, Italy.

 

The 2019 BMW F 850 GS Adventure will be available as a completely built-up unit (CBU) and is currently offered in only one variant 'Pro' with the Style Rallye package. Bookings for the bike have already started at all BMW Motorrad dealerships.

"With the launch of the all-new BMW F 850 GS Adventure, we are now expanding the premium BMW Motorrad range in this segment," Hans-Christian Baertels, president at BMW Group India, said.

The all-new F 850 GS Adventure offers travel enduro riders, off-road-oriented touring riders and globetrotters the perfect companion for exploring the remote corners of the world by motorcycle, he boasted.

 

The motorcycle is powered by the same 853 cc in-line parallel-twin engine that powers the regular BMW F 850 GS, but here, the motor has been tuned to produce an additional 5 bhp, churning out around 94 bhp and 86 Nm torque.

The motor comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox and offers top-speed of 197 kmph.

The motor is also assisted by a new self-boosting anti-hopping clutch that reduces engine drag torque and adds significant riding safety- especially in braking manoeuvres while downshifting.
