One of our taller rental motorcycles but very popular with its powerful 85bhp twin cylinder engine giving a lovely throaty roar as you take on New Zealand’s roads. The large capacity fuel tank holds enough to ride from one side of the South Island to the other (Christchurch to Hokitika) plus you can carry enough luggage for the entire tour as you go, all thanks to the BMW Vario side cases and top box.
The BMW F850GSA is a relative lightweight motorbike. The claimed dry weight is listed at 185 kg or 407 lbs, while its real-life weight is around 205kg, this might sound on the heavy side but the F800GS feels and handles far lighter than it actually is. Standard seat height is 34.6 inches, making it one of the tallest hire motorcycles on our fleet.
