2024 BMW F 900 GS and F 800 GS Are Coming to America
US-bound middleweight GS models confirmed in VIN filings
Last September, BMW announced an updated middleweight adventure bike line-up comprising of the F 800 GS, F 900 GS, and F 900 GS Adventure. Though the new models were announced globally, BMW never officially confirmed they would come to the U.S. market.
That will soon change, as BMW has submitted vehicle identification number information for the three models to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for the 2024 model year. The three GS models were included on the filing submitted this morning, along with the rest of BMW’s 2024 lineup.
We figured it was only a matter of time before the F 800 and F 900 GS models were announced for the U.S. market, though we assumed they would have been confirmed closer to the launch of the flagship R 1300 GS. With the VIN decoder filings, we expect confirmation to come very soon.
As we previously reported, the new models replace the previous F 750 GS, F 850 GS and F 850 GS Adventure. As with their predecessors, the three new GS models share the same 895cc engine despite the numbers in the model names.
The VIN decoder confirms the U.S. spec models will have the same peak horsepower figures from the global announcement, with the F 800 GS claiming 105 hp and the F 900 GS and GS Adventure claiming 105 hp. Torque figures were not included in the VIN decoder, but we expect they will not change much from the international figures, with the F 800 GS claiming 67 lb-ft. and the 900 models claiming 69 lb-ft. We’ll have to wait for the official announcement to confirm these figures.
