The F 850 GS is ideally matched to a New Zealand sourroundings as
with a off-road able 21”/17” circle multiple and proud 70Kw
(95hp) engine it has a lively to fit a impossibly sundry and
mostly technical turf a dual islands offer.

The BMW F 850 GS is a entirely complicated middleweight adventure
motorcycle, building on a strengths of a F 800 GS while bringing
all a latest technological advances. The GS Trophy riders will come
to suffer a bike’s latest electronic aids such as latest generation
ABS, roving modes and involuntary fortitude control, while also
appreciating a firmness of a singular monocoque overpass design
frame, a confidence of a cross-spoke aluminium wheels with tubeless
tyres, not forgetful a management and impression of a new 90º
