Truly beautiful !!!

Can't wait to see shootouts between all the new mid sized Adv bikes!
No matter what your preference, but I can see quite a few riders "upgrading" from 1200's to these...  :peepwall:

One good point about it......

Those gold rims remind me of 1980's Yamaha's. :thumleft:

Interesting. They’ve ditched the under seat tank which was a good bonus for it, lowering weight and what not.

Seems to also have a stock chain Oiler?

After 3 beers it’s hard to tell this apart from the new Tiger 800XC...

Does remind me somewhat of another tri-colour, golden rim bike just revealed... mmmm. Clever marketing, BMW.

Interesting PRO lady they have!!   :lol8:
One negative is that it is heavier than the 800 - wonder by how much...  :-\

Very, very pretty.

Although I am not scared spending money on new bikes I struggle with the idea of swapping my 2016 800 adv overly kitted for a new 850.

Apparently none of the extras can be fitted and I am only doing 4000km a year if it is a good year.

I like!

$12 000 for the basic model up to about 15k for the full spec..

Question: What is a 'clutch assist' function?

It's when your clutch breaks, and the Hilux and trailer from ASSIST comes to pick you up.

There's also piston assist, crank assist, and so on. :ricky:

My F8GS was 227 kg on the scales.  That was with an Akra slip-on...
