The new F 800 R is radically different, and yet every inch a BMW. The state-of-the-art parallel twin engine with electronic fuel injection develops 87hp from its 798cc, not to mention a mighty 86Nm of torque. And with the Akrapovic sport silencer retrofitted, its sound is every bit as impressive as its performance.
The 320-millimetre Brembo double disk brake at the front ensures maximum stopping power, while optional BMW Motorrad ABS and TPC Tyre Pressure Control further enhance safety. The bike is also highly manoeuvrable, thanks in part to the lightweight aluminium in its rigid frame and dynamically styled double swing-arm, which helps keep its dry weight down to just 177 kilograms. Handling is incredibly precise, thanks to the excellence of the suspension set-up, and a fuel tank located under the seat for a lower centre of gravity.
A wealth of design options, including LED indicators, painted components and radiator trims, give it an even sportier look. Streetbike freestyle World Champion Chris Pfeiffer says of his new BMW F 800 R; 'The outstanding qualities of this machine mean I can really take it to the limit, and help me to come up with new, even more extreme tricks!'
