The BMW R 850 C was the sister model of the larger R 1200 C version made from 1997. The R 850 C model debuted in 1999, and, contrary to tradition, the maker used a lot of chrome on this particular machine.

In 2000, the German motorcycle maker released the BMW R 850 C, a cruiser motorcycle in its second production year, delivering the same technical, visual, and performance specifications as the previous one without any changes.

In the visual department, the motorcycle packed standard fittings, such as a round headlight on the front, a small wind deflector, a single seat with a low seating position, a wide handlebar, two short exhausts with a silencer on each side, and three-spoke aluminum wheels.

Despite the R 850 C and its larger sister being identical, with the only visual differences being the R 850 C badge on the fuel tank and the smaller engine, it never reached the same sales figures as its sister, so the R 850 C was removed from the product range in 2001.

A BMW Motorrad Telelever system and two 305 mm brake discs tied to four-piston calipers controlled the front end. In comparison, the rear end was controlled by a BMW Motorrad Monolever system and a 285 mm disc with a dual-piston caliper.

As for power, the 2000 BMW R 850 C took its muscles from an 848cc four-stroke twin-cylinder air/oil-cooled engine that delivered 50 hp at 5,250 rpm and 71 Nm (52 lb-ft) at 4,750 rpm.
