The new BMW F 750 GS is part of our range of rented motorcycles, so we thought it would be great to give you a short review of the BMW F 750 GS in this article.
The new 2019 BMW F 750 GS, one of the smallest BMW adventure tourers, is the smaller version of its big brother the BMW F 850GS.
- So then, what are the main differences between the BMW F750GS and the BMW F850GS?
For a start, the frame and the engine on both GSes are the same. The BMW F750 GS is not as powerful as the 850, there is a bit less torque and max power (77 vs 90hp at 7 500rpm).
- So, why should you buy or rent a BMW F750GS instead?
The F 750 GS comes up in two versions, the standard one and the version with additional features with pro ride modes option. The pro option contains Enduro mode and Dynamic mode. On the standard version, the throttle of the BMW F 750 GS seems to be a bit too smooth, for those who prefer a more dynamic ride you are better going for the pro option modes… or change for a BMW F 850 GS.
Anyways, this motorcycle offers the possibility for smaller riders to have fun on a smaller version of the GSes family with its 770-815 mm height seat. It’s also a very light motorcycle with a total weight of 224kg. The suspensions are adjustable contrary to the 850, and the TFT dashboard offers a brilliant tool for the rider. The TFT screen is very clear to read, the information is simple, large enough to be seen without having to bend down and the visibility is still clear when the sun hits the screen.
The main point about this motorcycle is that it is not really the best to ride off-road, it is a more tarmac orientated motorcycle. It will be at its best and most impressive on proper tarred roads especially in the countryside and mountain type roads. Long riding and touring is totally feasible, the BMW F 750 GS is easy to handle, very comfortable, and gives excellent capacities when not off-road.
At high speed, the wind blast is an issue because of the short windscreen, but as we said, this bike is perfect for countryside roads and mountain winding roads, where there is no need to speed up as much.
If there was a real comparison to do, it would be with the Triumph Tiger rather than the F 850 GS. So stay tuned, the next blog article might just be about our Triumph Tiger 800 XRx review.
