The BMW F 800 R is a new generation of roadster bike based on BMW’s strong heritage. It combines the ease of everyday use with the fun and excitement of off-road riding.
Strong design with relaxed riding
The F 800 R combines minimalistic lines with strong design to appeal to a wide range of buyers. The bodywork has been redesigned and there is a single headlight that replaces the previous model’s twin lights.
The riding position is relaxed and includes a wider one-piece handlebar, whilst the footrests have been lowered and moved forward. This means you will get better control and it will assist shorter riders as the seat has been reduced in height by 10mm.
The F 800 R is available in a range of colours and model choices. Colour choices are Light White/Black Storm metallic/Black satin gloss, Sakhir Orange metallic/Black satin gloss or Racing Blue/Alpine White. Each choice is as unique as you.
The F 800 R has a two-cylinder engine which provides an output of 87bhp. It is a sporty, easy-to-ride roadster. The economical engine provides 86Nm of torque with power being provided across a linear engine speed range. It is happy to rev to 8,500rpm through a six-speed gearbox and provides a crisp, responsive throttle.
The engine gives the feel and ride of a larger bike combined with the excitement of a sports bike. It is perfect for around town or out in the countryside.
The chassis provides clean, crisp performance with the bike weighing in at 177kg. The F 800R provides a stable ride combined with controlled handling. The front forks enable controlled cornering and the dampened rear shocks are fully adjustable. Powerful brakes are provided, backed up with a standard ABS system.
All F 800 R bikes come with ABS and a stable, balanced suspension set-up as standard. This gives you control to match the performance on the road.
If you choose the optional Automatic Stability Control and Dynamic Electronic Suspension Adjustment, you will get adjustable suspension damping at the touch of a button to improve safety, performance and comfort.
