The New BMW F800R

MUNICH : May 4,2009 - BMW launches the new F800R. The bike features parallel twin engine with electronic fuel injection, which develops 87 horsepower from its 798 cubic centimetres, a 86 Newton-metres of torque and has a Akrapovic sport silencer retrofitted, its sound is every bit as impressive as its performance.

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 bike is also highly manoeuvrable, thanks in part to the lightweight aluminium in its rigid frame and dynamically styled double swing-arm, which helps keep its dry weight down to just 177 kilograms.

BMW has introduced F 800 R at the EICMA 2008 – the Milan motorcycle show. A sporty roadster in the segment of medium category naked bikes designed for a high level of riding dynamics and maximum riding fun.
