Superior. On any terrain.

Superior. On any terrain.

Anyone who ventures into uncharted territory again and again needs a bike they can trust in any situation. Whether it's deserts or mountains, river valleys or plateaus, this travel Enduro shows its superiority across the board. Even from the factory, it is predestined for long-distance and off-road use: The tubular steel space frame provides increased rigidity, ensuring greater ride stability and improved handling. The front suspension is regulated by the upside-down telescopic forks, and by the WAD suspension strut at the rear via progressive damping. The F 850 GS Adventure offers 9.1 inches of front suspension travel and 8.5 inches of rear suspension travel – for intense riding on any terrain. In addition to disengageable ABS, two standard "Rain" and "Road" ride modes are available at the touch of a button. With optional Ride Modes Pro, there are additional "Enduro", "Dynamic" and "Enduro Pro" modes. They provide additional control for diverse riding situations and their respective surfaces. Ride Modes Pro includes ABS Pro cornering ABS technology and DTC (Dynamic Traction Control). The F 850 GS Adventure also shows its superiority on off-road terrain thanks to a larger 21-inch front cross-spoked wheel with tubeless tires, enduro footrests, engine protection bars, skid plate, and practical hand protection.

More highlights of the F 850 GS Adventure.
  • Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) automatically adjusts the damping action of the suspension strut based on the riding style and road conditions.

  • With available Ride Modes Pro, the throttle and control systems of the machine can be easily adapted to different road situations. In addition to the standard "Rain" and "Road" ride modes, Ride Modes Pro provides "Enduro" and "Enduro Pro" modes, and advances ABS and ASC to ABS Pro and DTC (Dynamic Traction Control). "Enduro" mode is characterized by a more reserved throttle response. In addition, the control characteristics of the ABS Pro and the DTC are designed for enhancing off-road use while utilizing road tires. As a dedicated off-road rider, you also have the "Enduro Pro" mode, which offers optimal throttle response to go hand in hand with a regulation of ABS Pro and DTC, geared toward the operation with off-road tires. In addition, the rear wheel ABS is deactivated in this mode, allowing you to perform advanced braking maneuvers.

  • Connectivity offers innovative functions for navigating, calling, and listening to music on your motorcycle on a 6.5-inch TFT display.

  • The On-Board Computer Pro provides perfect information management at a glance. Programmed for displaying the most important vehicle data quickly and easily.

  • Those who go on trips around the world rarely do so travelling light. That's why the F 850 GS Adventure features a stainless steel luggage rack for the aluminum top case (optional accessory) and a stainless steel case holder for aluminum side cases. Practical accessories such as aluminum side cases and topcase in the rugged GS Adventure design, a passenger seat pocket, and a tank bag with map compartment, as well as the large space under the seat, are available and complete the range of storage options.
