2011 BMW F800R

Fun, fun, fun or: this is what motorcycling is about.

The BMW F 800 R.

This is definitely the hottest naked bike generation since the BMW K1300R. After all, a refined 2-cylinder bike like this state-of-the-art roadster is simply sexy: light, stylish, fit. A state-of-the-art product with a totally cool design, the perfect combination of pure riding pleasure with a high degree of suitability for everyday use. A 798 cc 2-cylinder entirely wrapped in black: it doesn’t just look cool, it sounds cool too. And it has pulling power.

The well-known and highly economical parallel twin provides real enjoyment. 86 Nm of torque is outstanding in this category – as is 87 bhp. Especially since it is available within a very practical engine speed range. In other words, this bike offers excellent ridability; and the BMW F 800 R offers a range which will please old hands and newcomers alike. Ergonomics which suit everyone, a firm, stable chassis and a perfectly balanced geometry round off this cool package: great handling for the city and ultra-stable for travelling at higher speeds on country roads.

With this much fun, the optional ABS is a welcome extra too, as are other features such as LED technology, styling parts, various intelligent luggage solutions – and of course the test ride. And don’t forget: the bike is also available with 34 bhp!

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

– Bright yellow metallic/Black satin gloss
