- BMW Motorrad is expanding its Indian line-up at a rapid pace, and the 2022 F 850 GS Pro and GS Adventure Pro certainly seem like fine additions.
- The two bikes are alike in so many ways. They have the same design and almost the same features.
- However, the difference lies in the fact that the latter is meant for longer trips and demanding terrains.
BMW F 850 GS Pro and Adventure Pro sport a muscular fuel tank, a prominent beak, a raised windscreen, an upswept exhaust, and a pillion grab rail. They pack a 6.5-inch TFT instrument cluster with support for smartphone connectivity. While the former is offered in a Racing Blue Metallic shade, the latter is available in Kalamata Metallic Matte and Black Storm Metallic color options.
The 2022 BMW F 850 GS Pro and GS Adventure Pro draw power from a BS6-compliant 853cc, liquid-cooled, two-cylinder engine linked to a 6-speed gearbox. The mill churns out a maximum power of 95hp at 8,250rpm and a peak torque of 92Nm at 6,250rpm.
The 2022 BMW F 850 GS Pro and GS Adventure Pro are equipped with disc brakes, along with four riding modes, cruise control, automatic stability control, and ABS Pro for improved handling on the roads. Suspension duties on the bikes are handled by 43mm inverted telescopic forks on the front side and a central spring strut on the rear end.
