You can do anything with this active roadster, from urban cruising, touring or ambitious sporty riding on winding country roads. The BMW F 800 R combines agility, everyday practicality and dynamic performance in an integrated sporty package. Thanks to its punchy 66 kW (90 hp) engine, you'll feel what it's made for every time you twist the throttle: supreme handling and total control of the road. But the F 800 R delivers more than just sporty performance and easy handling, it also features innovative technology: Ride-by-Wire and a range of riding modes, ABS as standard and optional systems like ASC or Dynamic ESA make sure all that power is transferred securely to the road.
You can tell by its looks alone: The F 800 R is the perfect bike if you want to get on and have fun. The precise lines and minimalist trim elements give it a sense of light-footed agility, while the upside-down fork is suggestive of dynamic forward thrust even when stationary. The high-performance cockpit features a new dial design and the clear multifunction display now gives you even more information. Another highlight is the new rear silencer, which not only looks as good as it sounds, it also meets the EU-4 standard.
Three new colours accentuate the bike's dynamic design. The F 800 R looks especially sporty and dynamic in BMW motorsport colours. It comes with a red wheel lining in tribute to the S 1000 RR – the iconic superbike.
A powerful, water-cooled 798 cc two-cylinder in-line engine ensures dynamic forward propulsion. With 66 kW (90 hp) of power at 8000 rpm, it features fast response characteristics, impressive punch and excellent fuel efficiency. A reduced-power version with 35 kW (48 hp) is also available for new riders under the age of 25.
The F 800 R is designed for pure and simple riding pleasure, but safety is also a priority: All models feature a BMW Motorrad ABS and a stable, balanced suspension for supreme performance and absolute control of the road. Other options include ASC (Automatic Stability Control) and Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) for even greater safety, performance and comfort. Ride-by-Wire gives you much finer throttle control. Thanks to the standard Rain and Road modes and the optional Dynamic mode, the F 800 R can be adapted even better to any road surface and riding style.
You can tailor the bike to meet your exact ergonomic needs thanks to standard adjustable clutch and brake levers and a large selection of seat variations. BMW Motorrad also offers a wide range of optional equipment and accessories for personalising your F 800 R. For example, you can choose the new raised handlebars. Combined with a low seat, this option is perfect for a more relaxed riding position, especially for smaller riders.
