Again in Could 2018, BMW Motorrad unveiled an idea bike, the 9cento (pronounced ‘nove cento’) at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy. Now, a patent filed within the Nationwide Institute of Industrial Property (INP) in Brazil confirms production-ready model is already within the pipeline. A 2019 BMW Motorrad brochure, in the meantime, had the F 850 RS listed, and the producer claimed that this was a typo, however that does not appear to be the case now. Our supply claims that the bike is listed because the BMW F 850 RS within the patent submitting.
The F 850 RS is anticipated to be powered by the identical 853cc, parallel-twin engine used on the F 850 GS and the F 750 GS, however most certainly in a unique state of tune. That is additional backed by the truth that the header pipes look similar to these on the GS bikes. This engine delivers 77hp and 83Nm of torque within the F 750 GS and 85hp and 92Nm of torque on the F 850 GS. It is going to be attention-grabbing to see how BMW tune this engine for the F 850 RS.
The patent picture additionally reveals what the manufacturing F 850 RS will appear like, and it’s evident that BMW hasn’t strayed too removed from the unique 9cento idea on which it’s primarily based. It seems to be just like the BMW S 1000 XR sports-tourer and can probably be a touring-biased, partly faired model of the mid-capacity GS bikes. BMW makes use of the ‘RS’ (Reisesport, which interprets to journey sport) suffix to establish its sport-tourers and the R 1250 RS is at present the one bike within the line-up utilizing the nomenclature.
It’s additionally clear that the bike will sport alloy wheels and a suspension setup that’s extra in tune with its sport-touring intent. There’s additionally a chance that the BMW F 850 RS may very well be a substitute to the F 800 GT in worldwide markets, however that is still to be seen.
