The new BMW F 800 R
The new F800R is the latest in the line of dynamic parallel twin-cylinder motorcycles from BMWMotorrad.

Consistent development of its all-round qualities has ensured the sporty roadster is ready to delight owners with its sporty performance, agile handling and even greater versatility - all wrapped up in a fun, practical package.

Power is sourced, as before, from a liquid-cooled four-valve twin-cylinder engine with 798 cc displacement. With output increasing to 66kW (90hp) at 8,000rpm (up from 64kW (87hp) at 8,000rpm) and shorter ratios for first and second gear, the parallel twin offers even greater sprinting ability while retaining the impressive pulling power, instantaneous responses and low fuel consumption familiar from the predecessor model. Peak torque remains 86Nm (63 lb-ft) at 5,800rpm.

The exciting riding experience on board the F800R is further enhanced by new suspension components and optimised ergonomics. For example, an upside-down fork now takes care of front suspension duties, while a hydraulic twin disc brake with radial brake callipers provides fade-resistant stopping power. A new lower seat height (at 790mm instead of the previous 800mm), combined with new handlebars and rider foot pegs, creates even better ergonomics for the rider.

The design of the F800R also provides a visual showcase for that extra rider engagement. With its newly designed fairings, radiatorshrouds, front mudguard and wheels, plus a new range of colours, the sporty roadster cuts an extremely dynamic figure. The now symmetrical main headlight also gives it a distinctive "face".

In keeping with the "Safety 360еЎ" principle, the new F800R is fitted with ABS as standard. It can also be ordered with optional systems such as ASC (Automatic Stability Control) and ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment), ensuring it sets a new benchmark in the segment in terms of its safety performance and all-round qualities.

The new features of the BMW F 800 R:
- Higher output than its predecessor - 66kW (90hp) at 8,000rpm (previously: 64kW (87hp) at 8,000rpm).
- Lower ratios for first and second gear.
- New bodywork features with an even more dynamic design.
- New colours.
- Symmetrical main headlight arrangement.
- Upside-down fork.
- Radial front brake callipers.
- Lighter wheels with dynamic design.
- Seat height reduced to 790mm (previously 800mm).
- New tapered aluminium handlebars.
- ASC (Automatic Stability Control) - optional / special accessory.
- ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) - optional.

The new F 800 R is expected to arrive on Australian shores in February 2015.

Australian Standard Specification and Pricing will be announced closer to this date. Some features listed as optional are expected to be standard fitment locally.
