The 2020 BMW F 850 GS Adventure is an adventure touring motorcycle that is one of the best middle-weight motorcycles in its class. The Adventure trim level of the F850 GS is a model that takes things up a notch. It’s more of a hardcore off-roader than its sibling.
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 Adventure is more at home on a trail than the standard model. That’s not to say the Adventure isn’t ready for the highway, too. It’s a tough bike designed for any environment and that’s how BMW arrives at the price tag of $14,445. The bike is a carryover from the previous year.
The motorcycle is available in Ice Grey, Lupin Blue Metallic, and Granite Grey Metallic.
