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