Categorically, the BMW F 850 GS is more of an off-roader while the F 750 GS is more road focused which is why the power output is higher on the former. The F 850 GS also has a marginally larger wheelbase at 1593 mm compared to 1559 mm of the F 750 GS. Moreover, the former also gets cross spoke 21-inch Wheels and 17-inch wheels at the rear shod in fatter 90/90 and 150/70 profile tyres, respectively which complement its off-road character. The latter on the other hand comes with cast aluminium, 19-inch wheels shod in 110/80 profile in the front and similar 17-inch wheels shod in 150/70 tyres at the rear.
