The Current Lineup

The F 850 GS and F 750 GS platforms debuted in 2018 and received an update in 2021. In contrast, BMW introduced the F 900 R and F 900 XR in 2020, boasting an 895cc engine. Notably, the GS models stuck with the slightly smaller 853cc Parallel-Twin engine through 2023. However, with the imminent arrival of the 2024 F 900 GS, it appears that BMW is gearing up for a significant overhaul of its GS lineup.

Performance Figures

The F 900 XR and F 900 R, confirmed for 2024, offer impressive performance figures, claiming 103 hp at 8,500 rpm and 68 lb-ft. at 6,500 rpm (though these figures may vary slightly in certain markets). In comparison, the F 850 GS and GS Adventure claim 94 hp at 8,250 rpm and 68 lb-ft. at 6,250 rpm. These numbers are remarkably close to the performance of the larger 895cc engine, possibly explaining BMW’s decision to wait until now to upgrade the GS models.

Euro 5+ Regulations

The decision to change the engine likely stems from the Euro 5+ regulations set to take effect for motorcycles in 2024. Euro 5+ introduces stricter criteria, including onboard diagnostics, durability testing, and noise limits. If the F 900 GS receives the 895cc engine, it will likely feature a different tuning to suit off-road riding better. There’s also the possibility of more extensive changes, including modifications to the engine displacement itself. As the current F 900 R engine will be four years old in 2024, any updates may also trickle down to the R and XR models in 2025.


As we inch closer to September 7, the official unveiling date for the 2024 F 900 GS and potentially its companions, motorcycle enthusiasts have every reason to be excited. The teasers and speculations have set the stage for what could be a thrilling update, promising enhanced performance and compliance with stringent Euro 5+ regulations. Stay tuned for more details, and get ready to usher in a new era of middleweight GS adventure motorcycles from BMW.
