2012 BMW F800ST Review

2012 BMW F800ST

Riding a motorcycle is simply great fun. Whether you take a short sporty tour cross country, a trip through the city or a long holiday trip with luggage. That's right - every ride means pure pleasure! This kind of versatility requires an all-rounder which gives the rider whatever is needed - both on winding roads and for fast motorway travel.

But common sense is important too: economy, reliability and no complications are just as important as a great visual appearance and pure fun on the road - whether in the city or for sporty weekend tours. The BMW F 800 ST is just such a universal talent, combining pleasure and common sense.

This is what a sports touring bike looks like - combining touring fun and comfort with an impressive sporty touch: elegant, functional trim with superb wind and weather protection. A powerful, highly sophisticated 2-cylinder in-line engine with 80 hp which fulfills the toughest environmental standards and is right up there when it comes to torque levels. Modern toothed belt drive with loss-free power transmission and without any load alteration, easier on maintenance than a chain drive and with higher durability.

The chassis gives you dynamic and stress-free pleasure on winding country roads, you enjoy uncomplicated handling in the city and can cover lengthier distances including swift spells on the motorway with a high degree of ride stability. And as is characteristic of BMW, there are many intelligent accessory ideas which will enable you to put together your own personal sports touring bike.

Why not go to your BMW Motorrad dealer to test drive the F 800 ST? Then you'll find out what we mean by "serious fun"!
