2019 F750/850GS's arrived mid week. First out of the box was a 750 in Austin Yellow 853cc, 77hp. 4 gal tank and equipped just like the bigger bikes with Tire Pressure Monitor, Center Stand, Keyless Ride, Heated Grips, Cruise Control, Dynamic ESA, Dynamic Traction Control, Gear Shift Pro, Ride Modes Pro, ABS Pro, Connectivity, LED style elements, GPS Prep, Saddle Bag Mounts...and more! Under 500 pounds with a standard seat height of 32.1 inches.
A Light White one with Low Suspension and Low seat is here also, the Light White is trimmed out a la Motorrad colors.
F850's are similarly equipped in Light White and a Low Suspension/Low Seat in Pollux Metallic (think deep teal green metallic); they are 504 pounds.
Jay took out the 750 for a test ride and says, they feel "sturdy and beefy".
A full range of accessories are already available including higher handlebars, adjustable levers and pegs, mufflers, seats, windshields, body protection, etc.
Looks like the long awaited upgrade for the mid sized bikes have been worth waiting for. Test rides available.
IMF Long Beach - Nov 14-16 -Free Passes for test rides will be here shortly and these new models should be a consideration.
Some things don't really photograph well and BMW Style apparel is no exception. Items in the Fall Supplement on paper are not exactly exciting...
Taking a chance and ordering blindly brought a great surprise… There's a light weight jacket called "Curves" which is really a knock out. Picture "the Pink Ladies from Grease" style and design in a deep teal with the back embroidered "Lean in to the Curves of Life". It's striking and I'll be stocking up on them for the holidays.
Speaking of holidays, we got a preview of a few of the items coming in and they include a 2 wheel BMW scooter as well as additional availability of the BMW Bosch Battery power assisted e-bike.
