The New MY 2018 F 750 GS/ F 850 GS (arriving in early Q2 2018)

After ten years of consistent model development since they were introduced, BMW Motorrad has now fully redesigned and reengineered its middle-class GS models. With significant enhancements to the overall product offer, the improved value compared to the F 700/800 GS predecessor models has resulted in a substantially more competitive offer despite a price adjustment.

With additional standard features valued at close to $1,000 (not including the new design, engine upgrade, and other product improvements) the F 750 GS price increases $200 and the F 850 GS increases $600 vs. the respective predecessor models.

Improvements vs. Predecessor Models

• Reduced operational clutch force

• Improved sound

• Stiffer rims = improved riding stability and target precision

• F 850 GS: Cross-spoke wheels with tubeless tires; lower seat height: -.8“ = 33.9“

• Improved fuel tank gauge, wheel load distribution, slimmer tail

Options and Product Offer

The number of available options has almost doubled for these models, with new options referenced below:

With this substantial improvement in option availability, BMW is taking the opportunity to implement a new strategy that simplifies the product offer by limiting the number of ways these bikes can be configured. An example of what this offer might look like is shown below, with final details to be provided closer to launch.

• There will be three different available option packages offering a low, medium, and high level of optional equipment. These packages will not be modifiable and the availability of single options will be limited.

• The goal is to include the most desirable options in discounted packages to provide a more cost-effective offer that will appeal to a large majority of customers. This product offer strategy is planned for the rest of the BMW line-up for MY 2019.
