2012 BMW F 800 R

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 optional BMW Motorrad ABS and 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.

The new 2012 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 cool, it sounds cool 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.

After its model revision, the F 800 R 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.

Make the city your urban playground with the new BMW F 800 R.

This state-of-the-art roadster is simply sexy, light and stylish, combining pure riding pleasure with everyday usability. Its low weight, plus the firm, stable chassis and perfectly balanced geometry offer superior agility.

The 798cc in-line 2-cylinder engine is smooth, responsive and has pulling power to spare. Just ask Chris Pfeiffer, it’s the bike of choice for the three times Stunt Riding World Champion.
