BMW F800R is the newest member of the BMW Motorrad’s F range and the main difference compared to the F800S or F800ST is that the new motorcycle which entered production in 2009 is a naked bike. This means that it gets rid of many accessories and components such as the windscreen or fairings, this type of bikes being also known as “standard”.
Even the BMW F800R shows no impressive features, the 798 cc two-cylinder engine is able to deliver 86 horsepower and 86 Nm of torque. These figures combined with a total mass of 177 kilograms enable the motorcycle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3,5 seconds and achieve a top speed of 222 km/h.
The German company also announced that the quarter-mile time is rated at around 12,3 seconds while the braking distance from 110 km/h to 0 takes 56 meters.
BMW fitted the F800R with LED turn signals, heated grips, lowered suspension, engine spoiler, trip computer and antilock brakes. In the front, the model gets a twin-disc 320 mm Brembo braking system while in the back is a single disc with a diameter of 265 mm.
The BMW F800R has been introduced in 2006 by Chris Pfeiffer, BMW also launching a special edition of this bike in honor of Pfeiffer.
