The BMW F 750 GS for emergency services17.05.2018
A few weeks ago, the completely newly developed generation of GS models of the F series from BMW Motorrad made its debut. The two available variants F 750 GS and F 850 GS seamlessly continue the tradition of their predecessor versions and combine distinctive touring and long-distance suitability with sporting dynamics and supreme off-road capabilities. Therefore, they are ideal for use as special-purpose vehicles. The BMW F 750 GS being shown at the RETTmobil 2018 impressively demonstrates the qualities it possesses to make it suitable for deployment as a public authority motorcycle.
In addition to the emergency service foiling, the motorcycle’s optical equipment features include several LED flashing beacons and an LED rotating beacon, each switchable between the colours blue and yellow. The entire light system and the siren are effectively controlled via the compactly designed control panel, which is ergonomically ideally positioned directly next to the grips. The rider sits behind high-mounted handlebars on a single seat available in different heights and with a radio box in which all end devices can be safely stowed away to be immediately at hand when required. Further equipment required at the operation site – the handy fire extinguisher, for example – can be kept in the two side-mounted cases offering a generous amount of storage space. Further features include heated grips, hand protectors and a protective bar.
Thanks to the riding modes “Rain” and “Road”, it is possible to adapt the motorcycle to various different road conditions. In addition to ABS as standard, the incline-optimised ABS Pro feature, dynamic brake light and the two additional riding programmes “Dynamic” and “Enduro” are onboard the exhibited F 750 GS as an integral part of the Pro riding modes. The bike is powered by a 2-cylinder, 4-stroke in-line engine with 853 cubic centimetre displacement, an output of 57 kW/77 hp and a maximum torque of 83 Nm. Average fuel consumption as per WMTC is 4.1 l/100 km and top speed is 190 km/h.
