BMW Motorrad India launches its new range of middle weight Adventure twins in India
The German bike manufacturer BMW is putting a good effort to conquer the Indian premium bike market. The company is looking forward to the middle weight adventure touring segment with the launch of 2018 F750 GS and F850 GS. The F750 GS retails at Rs. 11.95 lacs and F850 GS is priced Rs. 12.95 lacs. Both the bikes are imported to India as CBU models, and the imports have been commenced by all the BMW Motorrad dealerships across the country.
For the middle-weight adventure twins, the bodywork is inspired by the company’s flagship adventure bike, the mighty R1250 GS. Looking at the electronics, the Bluetooth enabled 6.5 inch TFT display comes as an option. The base variant gets two riding modes i.e. Rain and Road, while the flagship variant gets four modes i.e. Rain, Road, Dynamic and Enduro. Also the base model owners can opt for Dynamic and Enduro mode.
The GS twins are equipped with a new monocoque frame and updated suspension geometry with the engine acting as a stressed member. The suspension setup is revised to a 43mm Front fork unit for F850 GS and a 41mm telescopic setup for F750 GS. Both the bikes are offered in 3 variants in India i.e. Standard, Pro and Pro Low Suspension. The standard variant is equipped with slipper clutch, ASC, dual-channel ABS, cruise control and LED headlamps lights with integrated DRLs. However, the Pro variant gets Dynamic traction control, Dynamic ESA, quickshifter, cornering ABS and a luggage rack. The Pro Low Suspension variant gets a suspension lowering kit along with a shorter seat hieght. Well this is a great move by BMW. As per the Indian average height, many riders face difficulties while hoping and riding the standard adventure bikes.
After the launch of 2018 BMW F750 GS and F850 GS, other bikes like Triumph Tiger 800, Honda Africa Twin, and Ducati Multistrada 950 might face a tough competition in the Indian middleweight adventure touring segment.
