2009 BMW F800ST

“Serious touring” – the BMW F 800 ST shows you how much fun it can be to use your common sense.

You ride your motorbike for kicks. Whether you take a short sharp jaunt cross country, a trip through the city or a long holiday trip with luggage, every ride should be a pleasure. This kind of versatility requires an all-rounder that gives the rider whatever they need – both on winding local roads and for fast motorway travel. But practicalities are important too: economy and reliability are just as important as great looks and riding pleasure – whether in the city or on a sporty weekend away. The BMW F800 ST is just such an all-rounder, combining pleasure and common sense in equal measure. And now with the new low seat option available there’s an F800 ST for everyone.

This is what a sports touring bike should look like – combining touring fun and comfort with an impressive sporty touch: elegant, functional trim with superb wind and weather protection. A torquey, highly sophisticated parallel twin that meets the toughest environmental standards and loves to rev, yet is right up there when it comes to torque levels. The modern toothed belt drive gives loss-free power transmission and requires less maintenance than a chain drive, with higher durability. The chassis gives dynamic and stress-free pleasure on winding country roads, predictable handling in the city and can cover longer distances including longer stints on the motorway with a high degree of ride stability. And as one would expect from BMW, there are many intelligent accessory ideas available which will enable you to put together your own personal sports touring companion.

Head to your BMW Motorrad dealer to test ride the F800 ST – then you’ll find out what we mean by “serious fun”!


This middleweight definitely goes the distance.

The twisties are yours to devour anywhere in the country aboard the new 85 bhp F 800 ST, which is the touring version of the lithe new F 800. With a full fairing, high windshield and touring oriented ergonomics with raised handlebars, bombing down any road you choose is as comfortable as it is thrilling. Two 320 mm diameter front brake disk and Brembo four piston hydraulic calipers, and with optional ABS every ride stopping power is guaranteed. Add optional touring cases and heated grips and you’ve got a bike that is fast, flickable, and above extraordinarily capable. No matter where you want to ride, the sharp-handling F 800 ST gets you there, mile after mile.
