BMW Motorrad has increased the engine capacity from 853 cc to 895 cc.

The weight of the F 900 GS has gone down by 14 kg. The new GS models also feature two riding modes – Rain and Road as standard. There is Dynamic Traction Control, ABS Pro optimized for cornering and dynamic brake light. BMW is offering “riding modes Pro” as an option which allows the rider to control engine drag torque control as well as Dynamic Brake Control or DBC.

BMW F 900 GS features a new fuel tank that is significantly lighter than before as it is made up of plastic. The weight of the swingarm has also been decreased and there is a new aluminium stand and brake lever. BMW has also added knuckle guards and heated grips. Apart from this, the Showa up-side down forks in the front are now fully adjustable on the F 900 GS and F 900 GS Adventure.

The engines on the motorcycle feature two counter-rotating counterbalance shafts to increase the refinement.

The off-road capabilities of the F 900 GS are enhanced by a new riding triangle. The footrests are lower, the handlebar is higher and the fuel tank has been redesigned as well. This makes it easier to ride the motorcycle while standing up. The headlamp unit is also new on the F 900 GS and is an LED unit. The turn indicators on all three motorcycles are LEDs as well.
