We have a spy photo and it is of a BMW adventure bike being tested. Reports claim that this is the all-new F900GS being developed by BMW for the 2018 model year (or may be 2019 model year). The styling of the bike is similar to the F800GS but is sharper. Also, the bike’s final drive is now on the left side with the exhaust end can moving over to the right of the bike. So, here’s what we think the 2018 BMW F900GS price in USA, specifications and other details will be like.
2018 BMW F900GS Price in USA
The new 2018 BMW F900GS should come for a price of $14,499, considering the 2017 F800GS retails for $12,295. For this price, you should get a nicely-kitted bike from the factory itself without having to spend a few bucks on options.
