2020 BMW F 850 GS

The 2020 BMW F 850 GS is an adventure touring motorcycle that is one of the best middle-weight motorcycles in its class. The bike can do pretty much anything. It’s a model designed to be a well-rounded machine that can take on the dirt as well as the street with ease.

The model features an 853cc liquid-cooled twin-cylinder inline engine that makes a 90 hp and 63 lb-ft of torque. The motorcycle has the grunt to do what it needs to on the low end of the rev range and the power at the top end, too.

The F 850 GS is at home on the pavement but it can also take to an off-road trail or lane with ease. It’s a tough bike designed for any environment and that’s how BMW arrives at the price tag of $13,345. The bike is a carryover from the previous year.

The motorcycle is available in Light White with Blue and White Accents, Racing Red, and Pollux Metallic Matte.
