The advanced 2-cylinder in-line engine introduced in 2018 with the F 850 GS provides increased riding dynamics, thanks to the increased capacity 895 cc (previously 853 cc). In the F 900 GS and F 900 GS Adventure it puts out 77 kW (105 hp) and in the F 800 GS 64 kW (87 hp). In addition to a significant increase in peak power of 10 hp each, the new engines are also characterised by a much fuller torque curve, increased pulling power and faster acceleration.

The new F 900 GS

The new GS models in the F series already offer the two riding modes “Rain” and “Road” as standard. Dynamic Traction Control DTC, the cornering-optimised ABS Pro and the dynamic brake light.

With “riding modes Pro” available as optional equipment ex works, the dynamic qualities of the new F 900 GS, F 900 GS Adventure and F 800 GS can be exploited even more intensively thanks to additional riding modes, the riding mode pre-selection and the engine drag torque control as well as Dynamic Brake Control DBC.

The new F 900 GS, F 900 GS Adventure and F 800 GS rely on a bridge-type frame made of deep-drawn sheet steel parts welded together, which integrates the 2-cylinder in-line engine as a supporting element. The 14.5-litre plastic fuel tank of the new F 900 GS saves 4.5 kg of weight compared to the steel tank of the previous model. The F 900 GS’s redesigned rear section save around 2.4 kg of weight. A further 1.7 kg are saved thanks to the rear silencer by Akrapovič. The front wheel on the F 900 GS and F 900 GS Adventure is guided by new, fully adjustable upside-down telescopic forks by Showa.

The optional equipment ex works Enduro Pro package featuring fully adjustable titanium nitride-coated upside-down telescopic forks, fully adjustable central spring strut as well as handlebar risers and M Endurance chain means the new F 900 GS can be given even more off-road prowess.
