Reviews

“It feels like the shortest and least intimidating middleweight adventure motorcycle on the market” adv pulse.com

“The F850GS is a good bike – it’s that simple. The engine is lovely; fast and frantic when you want it, easy and economical when you want that instead. The chassis is capable on road and those in the know tell me it works off-road too. It has all the essential modern gizmos, as many options as you could ever need” bennetts.co.uk

“The F 850 GS closes the gap between the two models. I think the increased level of refinement is going to make it al the more attractive to potential customers looking for a premium, adventure-touring motorcycle.” Revzilla.com
