Go-Anywhere Power and Agility: The New BMW F 800 GS, F 900 GS, & F 900 GS Adventure

Setting a new standard for premium middleweight versatility and performance.


Manila, Philippines. With the goal of providing purist riding enjoyment with a range of new premium middleweight touring enduro motorcycles, SMC Asia Car Distributors Corp., the official importer and distributor of BMW Motorrad in the Philippines, now presents the new BMW F 800 GS, F 900 GS, and F 900 GS Adventure.
The launch of these three new motorcycles significantly boosts BMW Motorrad's lineup of sophisticated off-road, touring, and adventure motorcycles in the hotly contested middleweight segment. All three models have been significantly updated and now offer, among other things, an even higher level of standard equipment in addition to a new powerplant.
An advanced 2-cylinder in-line engine with greater capacity, more output and engine drag torque control.
In the new F 900 GS, F 900 GS Adventure and F 800 GS, the advanced 2-cylinder in-line engine introduced originally introduced in 2018 receives a significant upgrade. The main reason for this is the increased capacity 895 cc (previously 853 cc). With a 270/450 degree firing interval, the engine generates a particularly emotional sound. Power outputs for the F 900 GS and F 900 GS Adventure are rated at 105 hp and 91 Nm of torque, while the F 800 GS has 87 hp and 91 Nm of torque. 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.
Two riding modes, ABS Pro and DTC as standard. Riding modes Pro with additional riding modes, riding mode pre-selection, and engine drag torque control as optional equipment.
The new GS models in the F series already offer the two riding modes "Rain" and "Road" as standard, alongside Dynamic Traction Control DTC, the cornering-optimised ABS Pro, and the dynamic brake light. When equipped with "Riding Modes Pro" available as an optional extra, 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 three additional ride modes (Dynamic, Enduro and Enduro Pro), riding mode pre-selection (quick select up to 4 riding modes), engine drag torque control, and Dynamic Brake Control (Prevents unintentional throttle application when braking).

BMW F 900 GS with new, significantly lighter plastic fuel tank and rear section. New, fully adjustable upside-down telescopic forks on the F 900 GS and F 900 GS Adventure.

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 is a complete redesign, saving 4.5 kg of weight compared to the steel tank of the previous model. The F 800 GS, on the other hand, has a capacity of 15-liters, while the F 900 GS Adventure offers a 23-liter fuel capacity for extended riding range.
The F 900 GS features a completely redesigned rear section which makes it look even more dynamic and saves 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.
New Enduro Pro package for the new F 900 GS and Dynamic ESA for the new F 900 GS Adventure and the F 800 GS as an option.
The new F 900 GS can be given even more off-road prowess with the optional Enduro Pro package featuring fully adjustable central spring strut as well as handlebar risers and M Endurance chain. Low suspension is standard on the F 900 GS, with the possibility of Standard Height Suspension as indent order, adding fully adjustable titanium nitride-coated upside-down telescopic forks. The Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) electronic suspension is available as optional equipment for the new F 900 GS Adventure and the F 800 GS.
New BMW F 900 GS with ergonomics optimised for off-road use, enduro footrests and aluminium side stand. Optimised adjustable gearshift lever and, on the F 900 GS, a new foot brake lever as well.
The increased off-road qualities of the new F 900 GS are expressed by the ergonomic triangle (handlebar - seat - footrests) optimised for off-road use. Lower footrests in combination with the higher handlebar position and the new design of the fuel tank provide clear advantages, especially when riding standing up on rough terrain. All three new models already offer an adjustable gearshift lever as standard. In conjunction with an optimised bearing and new gearshift lever kinematics, it was also possible to optimise shifting the six-speed transmission even further. The F 900 GS also features a new foot brake lever in a higher position.

Unrivalled information diversity and functionality.
The new GS models in the F series already each have a large 6.5-inch TFT display as standard. This applies in particular to the F 800 GS, which previously had an analogue display. Information diversity, quality of presentation and, last but not least, user-friendliness are unrivalled.
The new BMW F 900 GS is already equipped with a 12 mm holder as standard, which permits action cams or other devices to be mounted.
