2013 BMW F800R Review

2013 BMW F800R

The new 2013 F 800 R is definitely the hottest naked bike around. Three words best describe the F 800 R: light, agile and fast. This cool and sexy roadster offers the perfect combination of highway riding with a high degree of maneuverability for everyday urban use. And the F 800 R's 798 cc, 2-cylinder engine doesn't just look good, it sounds good too.

The F 800 R with 87 hp and an impressive 63 ft-lb of torque, offers excellent ridability. Great ergonomics mixed with a firm chassis and a perfectly balanced geometry round off this cool package. The F 800 R is great in the city, stable on the highway, and agile on the backroads.

With this much fun, the standard ABS is welcome too, as are other features such as hot accessories and intelligent luggage solutions.

And finally: it’s a BMW – and a pretty cool one, too.

 

It's definitely the hottest generation of roadsters since the BMW K1300R. Dominance from the very first yard - a perfect combination of pure riding fun and excellent suitability for everyday use.

After its model revision, the F800R is just as sexy as it was before - and the 798 cc 2-cylinder engine is as punchy as ever. The masculine design and minimalist lines offer highly attractive purism.

The new radiator side trim, white turn indicators and a wheel cover in the respective body colour turn the roadster into a bike that everyone loves to ride. The new sports windshield - also in body colour - highlights the bike's purist look.

The familiar, highly economical parallel twin continues to offer superb enjoyment. 86 Nm of torque is an outstanding figure in this class of motorcycle, as is 87 bhp.

In particular because this power is available across a perfectly linear engine speed range - in other words ridability and riding fun across the board; here the BMW F800R offers a breadth of performance which pleases experienced riders just as it does beginners.

Weighing in at just 177 kg with ergonomics which provide a perfect fit for everyone, a clean, crisp suspension and perfectly balanced geometry: the new F800R embodies uncompromising style that everyone loves to ride.


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.

The 320-millimetre Brembo double disk brake at the front ensures maximum stopping power, while BMW Motorrad ABS and optional TPC Tyre Pressure Control further enhance safety. The lightweight, rigid aluminium frame and dynamically styled double swing-arm, means the bike is also extremely manoeuvrable. The astonishing dry weight of just 177 kilograms make it an agile motorcycle with incredibly precise handling.

Need proof that this bike is as manageable, balanced and lightweight as we claim it is? Why not check out what stunt rider Mattie Griffin can do on his bike of choice?
