2022 BMW F850GS Adventure

The 2022 BMW F850GS And GS Adventure: Premium Middleweight Adventure

Often called “The Best Of Both Worlds”, BMW Motorrad certainly has many things right with the F 850 GS and GS Adventure. Powered by 853cc in-line 2-cylinder engines, and sharing the same 6-speed gearbox and brakes. Both bikes use the easy-to-read TFT display with connectivity. When it comes to the suspension, it appears that both bikes are using the same suspension and should have the same wheel travel numbers, 9.1″ / 8.5″ (230 mm / 215 mm) front and rear. I will note that there is some confusion on the BMW websites. Canada and some European sites list them as the same, but the USA and UK for example show different suspension travel figures between the two models.

There are key differences between these 2 premium Adventure bikes. The most obvious at first glance is the fairing. The Adventure has a larger fairing providing more protection. The Adventure receives a larger fuel tank holding an additional 8 L for a total of 23 L versus the GS with 15L. The Adventure model is blessed with the comfort seat which is a bit more posh for longer rides, this also means a slightly higher seat height. Finally you will notice the engine guard on the Adventure is much more substantial. All of these items add up to an additional 34 lbs (15 kg) of weight. This may not seem like much but it does leave the standard GS feeling much more nimble at slow speeds.

Like many models in the 2022 BMW lineup, the options list is full of goodies. I highly recommend looking at the Premium package, it includes key items such as the Dynamic ESA and Ride Modes Pro.
