New BMW F 800 R

BMW F 800 R at Marshall BMW

At our Dealership in Grimsby


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 deep, throaty exhaust tone, its sound is every bit as impressive as it performs.

With its stripped-back approach to exterior design, the F 800 R is a breath of fresh air. Quirky touches like asymmetrical dual headlamps lend an 'auteur' feel to proceedings, and remind the observer of the popular roadster K 1300 R model. Customisation options abound, including a Sport windshield, pillion passenger cover and radiator trim panels, allowing you to make the F 800 R your own.

The large-capacity 798cc parallel twin engine of the F 800 R provides ample power – up to 87bhp with 86Nm of torque, to be exact. The body is constructed from aluminium, making it both light (at just 177kg) as well as strong, and ensuring that handling is delightfully responsive even around tight bends.

Despite its back-to-basics approach, the F 800 R doesn’t shy away from incorporating a degree of technological sophistication. This comes in the form of the optional onboard computer, which informs the rider of the status of the bike. ABS, too, has been included as standard and serves to increase the rider's control over the bike's handling.

Safety & Design

The 'purist' approach of the F 800 R has not led to any compromises in terms of safety. BMW is to be commended, in fact, for ensuring safety levels comparable to almost any other current model you care to name. The Tyre Pressure Control (TPC) system keeps the rider aware of when to change the tyres, while a 320mm Brembo double-disc brake at the front ensures that stopping distance is minimised.
