The BMW F 800 R has provided impressive agility, sporty performance figures and light-footed handling combined with very low fuel consumption. The engine is still the liquid-cooled parallel twin with 4-valve technology and a capacity of 798 cc. The highly distinctive engine provides impressive pulling power, a spontaneous response and a low level of fuel consumption. In its design, the F 800 R BMW Motorsport colours of Alpine White non-metallic, Lupine Blue metallic, Magma Red non-metallic and Black silk matt contrast with the black drivetrain and swing arm; a white front wheel completes the sporty outfit.
Even more than before, the sporty flair and agility of the BMW F 800 R is now reflected in its highly dynamic design. The front side trim sections have been redesigned. They also serve as radiator covers and are now finished in body colour, as are the front mudguards. What is more, the spring of the rear spring strut is finished in red to highlight the sporty character of this naked bike. The Sport windshield finished in body colour and the white direction indicators are now part of the standard equipment of the new F 800 R.
The new BMW F 800 R is available in three colour combinations. While Alpine white/Black satin gloss stands for uncompromising dynamic performance, Magma red/White aluminium metallic matt is sporty and provocative in style. Meanwhile Mineral silver metallic gives the new. F 800 R a refined, technological touch. Its main advantages over the standard silencer are reduced weight and a throatier sound. Like the sporty rear silencer, the LED direction indicators contribute to the dynamic appearance of this special model.
Features which contribute to the exceptional dynamic performance in the F 800 R are the low weight of just 199 kg fully fuelled, the sprint-oriented gear ratio and the chassis, which is specially adapted to the demands of a sporty naked bike with light alloy bridge frame and dual rear wheel swing arm. Uniquely for the special model F 800 R Chris Pfeiffer, the spring of the rear spring strut is finished in red to match the bike’s sporty multicolour paint finish. Fuel tank positioned under seat for optimum centre of gravity, High-performance Brembo brake system, optionally with BMW Motorrad ABS.
