2015 BMW F800R New Review

2015 BMW F800R New on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Conquer the roads – on the BMW F800R New…

The new F800R is the latest in the line of characterful parallel twin-cylinder motorcycles from BMW Motorrad. Consistent development of its all-round qualities has ensured the dynamic roadster is ready to delight owners with its sporty performance, agile handling and even greater versatility – all wrapped up in a dynamic package.

Power is sourced, as before, from a liquid-cooled four-valve twin-cylinder engine with 798 cc displacement. With output increasing to 66 kW (90 hp) at 8,000 rpm (up from 64 kW (87 hp) at 8,000 rpm) and shorter ratios for first and second gear, the parallel twin offers even greater sprinting ability while retaining the impressive pulling power, instantaneous responses and low fuel consumption familiar from the predecessor model. Peak torque remains 86 Nm (63 lb-ft) at 5,800 rpm.

The engaging riding experience on board the F800 R is further enhanced by new suspension components and optimised ergonomics. For example, an upside-down fork now takes care of front suspension duties, while a hydraulic double-disc brake with radial brake callipers provides fade-resistant stopping power. A new seat fixed lower down (at 790 mm instead of the previous 800 mm), combined with new handlebars and rider foot pegs, creates even better ergonomics for the rider.

The design of the F800R – which is also pitched at novice riders – also provides a visual showcase for that extra rider engagement. With its newly designed fairings, radiator shields, front mudguard and wheels, plus a new range of colours, the sporty roadster cuts an extremely dynamic figure. The now symmetrical main headlight also gives it a distinctive “face”.

In keeping with the “Safety 360°” principle, the new F800R is fitted with ABS as standard. It can also be ordered with optional systems such as ASC (Automatic Stability Control) and ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment), ensuring it sets a new benchmark in the segment in terms of its safety performance and all-round qualities.

2015 BMW F800R New www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

The new F800R – a talented all-rounder from sports performance to touring ability. Whether you’re out for a cruise through the city streets or a tour of the countryside, primed to explore your sportier side around twisty roads or in a track training session, the BMW F800R will rise to the challenge. And never more so than in this latest incarnation, which comes with a more powerful engine, revised suspension and further improvements to its all-round qualities.

Stunt-riding world champion Chris Pfeiffer has done more than most to showcase the sporting character of the compact twin-cylinder roadster over the years. The F800R has not only carried him to victory in a host of competitions, it has also been his bike of choice when it comes to thrilling fans with spectacular moves and tricks in his stunt shows.

Powerful parallel-twin engine with increased output to deliver even more dynamic riding pleasure. The new F800R is the latest beneficiary of the dynamic propulsion produced by BMW’s torquey twin-cylinder engine. The liquid-cooled 798 cc unit uses electronic fuel injection and a closed-loop catalytic converter, linking up with a six-speed gearbox – all of which is a recipe for instantaneous responses, impressive pulling power and low fuel consumption. It also features mass balancing via an additional swivelling conrod, something none of its series-produced rivals can offer.

The engine has been retuned for the F800R to develop 66 kW (90 hp) (previously: 64 kW (87 hp)) at 8,000 rpm, while peak torque of 86 Nm (63 lb-ft) at 5,800 rpm is unchanged. Working in conjunction with modified ratios for first and second gear, it delivers even better performance. The bike should be fuelled – as before – with super unleaded fuel with a minimum octane rating of RON 95. A reduced-output variant producing 35 kW (48 hp) is available for riders aged up to 25 who have just passed their test.

Customers can also dip into the BMW Motorrad range of special accessories to equip their new F800R with an Akrapoviè sport silencer. This slip-on silencer delivers a particularly sonorous twin-cylinder soundtrack. Made from titanium and stainless steel, it weighs some 1.7 kilograms less than the standard end silencer.

Revised suspension with upside-down fork and radial brake callipers. For its suspension, the new F800R uses a tried and tested light-alloy perimeter frame in conjunction with a dual rear swing arm made from cast light alloy and a central spring strut. At the front wheel, the new F800R employs an upside-down fork with even greater torsional stiffness in place of the previous telescopic fork. Spring travel is 125 mm at both the front and rear. Comfort and user-friendliness are enhanced by a hand wheel allowing easy adjustment of the spring preload at the rear central spring strut.

Tyre dimensions remain unchanged, at 120/70 ZR 17 for the front wheel and 180/55 ZR 17 for the rear.
Enhanced directional precision and stability go hand in hand with increased braking performance at the front wheel, courtesy of a double-disc brake whose callipers are now mounted radially to the fork bases.

Latest-generation BMW Motorrad ABS fitted as standard, ASC available ex-works as an option / special accessory. The new F800R comes as standard with the most advanced two-channel ABS technology from BMW Motorrad. This generation of ABS is not only lighter and more compact than the one it replaces, it also uses an additional pressure sensor in the front brake circuit, which has further optimised control precision.

Another boost for safety – in slippery road conditions, in particular – is provided by ASC (Automatic Stability Control), which can be factory-fitted as an option or special accessory. ASC can be switched off for certain purposes.

Optimised ergonomics and new design. The new handlebars made from conical aluminium tubing allow a more relaxed riding position.

The new F800R has been fitted with new rider foot pegs with the aim of providing more relaxed ergonomics. They are now located 10 mm further forward and 10 mm lower, allowing them to offer a more comfortable knee angle and therefore enhanced seating comfort. Smaller riders will welcome the reduced seat height of the new F800R, which is now 790 mm (previously: 800 mm). Other seats which can be adjusted to suit the body size of individual riders are available as an option.

In addition to this increase in comfort, the seating position and design of the new F800R also shine a particularly bright spotlight on the bike’s dynamic, engaging character. The fairings, radiator shields, front mudguard and wheels have all been redesigned, as has the cockpit trim, while the now symmetrical main headlight arrangement also gives the F800R its very distinctive “face”.

ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) available as an option. BMW Motorrad offers the new F800R with ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) as an ex-works option – the first time this technology has been available for a mid-size roadster. This allows the rider to adjust the compression-stage damping of the rear spring strut electrically (at the touch of a button on the handlebars) while on the move. Riders can select from three settings – comfortable, normal or sporty – depending on road conditions and individual requirements.

A modern all-rounder.

The F 800 R is a firmly established player in the BMW Motorrad roadster segment. It combines agility, everyday practicality and dynamic riding fun in an integrated sporty package. And the revised F 800 R takes the whole thing a step further.

Design you can enjoy.

The F 800 R is just the right motorbike if you simply want to get on and have fun – and that is just what it looks like. The precise lines and minimalist trim elements give it a sense of light-footed agility, while the new upside-down fork is suggestive of dynamic forward thrust even when stationary. The symmetrical headlamp gives the F 800 R a new distinctive look.

Move ahead safely.

The F 800 R offers uncomplicated riding pleasure – ensured by the powerful yet economical parallel twin engine with 90 bhp – but it is also geared towards safety: ABS as standard, a stable, balanced suspension and the safety package to go with it (ASC, ESA, RDC) guarantee a supreme ride response and absolute control on the road.

Infinite variety.

The touring and all-round capabilities of the F 800 R are reflected not just in the wide range of seat heights and additional luggage fittings but also in the different paint finishes.

The F 800 R stands for maximum riding pleasure like almost no other roadster. BMW Motorrad has now improved this successful concept even further for model year 2015.
