        With the growth of the riding population, approachable middleweight motorcycles are becoming more and more popular. To meet this demand, manufacturers are bringing in lighter motorcycles better suited to everyday use than 1,000cc+ adventure bikes. 

        Updating its lineup to match is BMW Motorrad, which has just opened reservations for the F 750 GS and F 850 GS adventure motorcycles

        Despite what the model names might imply, these two share the same 853cc DOHC parallel-twin cylinder engine in different specs. In F 750 guise, the mill is good for 77hp at 7,500rpm and 83Nm of torque at 6,000rpm. For the F 850 model, the engine produces a maximum of 95hp at 8,250rpm and 92Nm of torque at 6,250rpm

        Also shared between the two is a 15-liter fuel tank, a six-speed manual gearbox, and a chain final drive. 

        Where the two begin to differ is in seat height. The 2021 BMW F 750 GS seat can be as low as 29.9 inches with the low suspension option. The F 850, on the other hand, has a minimum seat height of 31.6 inches.

        In terms of features, the two motorcycles share much of the same standard equipment: BMW Motorrad ABS Pro, Dynamic Traction Control, LED headlight and indicators, 12V and USB power sockets, adjustable brake and clutch levers, rain and road riding modes, and a 6.5-inch full-color TFT display with phone connectivity.

        In addition to the above features, the F 850 also receives keyless ride functionality and LED daytime running lights.

        Also in the F 850’s favor are the components, with a 43mm inverted fork, adjustable rear shock, and cross-spoked wheels equipped from the factory. Meanwhile, the F 750 gets a conventional 41mm fork, slightly lower-spec rear suspension, and cast aluminum wheels.

        Braking hardware is the same across both models, with dual 305mm with double-piston floating calipers up front and a single 265mm disc with a single-piston floating caliper in the rear. 

        With their light weight, lower seat heights, and ample equipment, either would make a great choice if you’re not quite ready to make the jump to something like BMW’s R1250 GS just yet. 

        Pricing for the F 750 GS starts at P695,000, while the F 850 GS can be had for as low as P795,000. Contact your local BMW Motorrad dealership if you’re interested in making a reservation.
