First look: The 2024 BMW F900GS, F900GS Adventure and F800GS


Here’s some news that everyone saw coming—BMW Motorrad has finally bumped up the capacity of their popular middleweight adventure bike. The 2024 BMW F900GS predictably borrows the bored-out 895 cc parallel-twin from its cousins, the F900R and F900XR. But what we didn’t expect, is how radically different the F900GS looks from the outgoing F850GS.

The 2024 BMW F900GS stands alongside another two new models—the BMW F900GS Adventure, and the down-tuned F800GS (not to be confused with the F800GS that was discontinued in 2018). All three bikes share several upgrades, but it’s the F900GS that’s most noteworthy.

Adventure motorcycles with rally-derived looks are trending right now and BMW Motorrad has taken note. Joining established bikes like the Aprilia Tuareg and the immensely popular Yamaha T7, the new BMW F900GS stands tall and skinny, with a forward-biased windscreen and an enduro-style seat. With no blocky dual headlights and only the tiniest of headlight beaks, it barely even looks like a BMW GS.

BMW’s intention is clear: they’re pitching the F900GS at riders who prefer dirt to asphalt—or, at the very least, want to look like they prefer dirt to asphalt. The relationship between the three models in the middleweight GS range hasn’t changed though; the F900GS is the core model, the F900GS Adventure adds extra long-distance capability, and the F800GS is a down-tuned version.
